Using WordPress as a CMS

by eric on June 9th, 2008 in: Open SourceWordPress

Thanks to Charles and Jonathan of the WordPress Podcast for episode 42, where Matt Mullenweg answered an audio question from yours truly regarding using WordPress as a CMS.

Matt pointed out a user-maintained post on the WordPress Codex titled “WordPress CMS.”

There’s a lot of good info in this page. I’d love to see even more documentation and community spring up around using WordPress as a CMS for non-blog websites.

Maybe even a gallery where people can show off their latest WordPress-powered sites.

Hmm . . . maybe that should be part of my contribution to the WordPress community. :)

Of course, there’s plenty of invaluable information throughout the Codex and I use, and recommend, it regularly. With a little digging and forum forum posting, you can find answers to most questions.

Of course, a quick Google search will turn up a lot of other helpful pages.

    I love to use wordpress as a cms. I feel it’s the easiest solution for my clients who want a blog and a website. I’d love to see more wordpress gallery themes but there are actually quite a few. Free ones especially.. that I’ve found on google.

    Thanks for your help in the forum!

    Yes, there are a lot of WordPress Theme sources and galleries, but I’m especially interested in finding one specific to sites that aren’t blogs, but are built using WordPress as a CMS.

    I don’t care much about free downloadable themes, I’m more interested in seeing what designers are doing for themselves or their customers, possibly including notes/articles explaining how they did it.

    Would also be cool to see other non-standard applications of WordPress too.

    Hello, It’s interesting that there is a big information in codex but still, not enough to fix everything. I have made my post in support forum but no one of so cold gurus want to touch it! Sorry for disturbing you! May-be you have any idea about messed up text possible causes? My support ticket must be one of the firs in: Themes and Templates.
    Sorry for disturbing you!

    You are definitely right when speaking about forums and codex, and especially when Professional like you is in total control of Css.
    Nice Blog! ;)
