WordPress powers more than 32% of the web — a figure that rises every day. Everything from simple websites, to blogs, to complex portals and enterprise websites, and even applications, are built with WordPress.

WordPress combineert eenvoud voor gebruikers en schrijvers met veel opties beschikbaar te stellen aan ontwikkelaars. Hiermee wordt het flexibel maar nog steeds eenvoudig om te gebruiken.

The following is a list of some of the features that come as standard with WordPress; however, there are literally thousands of plugins that extend what WordPress does, so the actual functionality is nearly limitless. You are also free to do whatever you like with the WordPress code, extend it or modify in any way or use it for commercial projects without any licensing fees. That is the beauty of free software, free refers not only to price but also the freedom to have complete control over it.

Wij denken dat je deze functies leuk zult vinden.

  • Eenvoud
    Simplicity makes it possible for you to get online and get publishing, quickly. Nothing should get in the way of you getting your website up and your content out there. WordPress is built to make that happen.
  • Flexibiliteit
    With WordPress, you can create any type of website you want: a personal blog or website, a photoblog, a business website, a professional portfolio, a government website, a magazine or news website, an online community, even a network of websites. You can make your website beautiful with themes, and extend it with plugins. You can even build your very own application.
  • Publiceer met gemak
    If you’ve ever created a document, you’re already a whizz at creating content with WordPress. You can create Posts and Pages, format them easily, insert media, and with the click of a button your content is live and on the web.
  • Tools om te publiceren
    WordPress makes it easy for you to manage your content. Create drafts, schedule publication, and look at your post revisions. Make your content public or private, and secure posts and pages with a password.
  • Gebruikersbeheer
    Not everyone requires the same access to your website. Administrators manage the site, editors work with content, authors and contributors write that content, and subscribers have a profile that they can manage. This lets you have a variety of contributors to your website, and let others simply be part of your community.
  • Media Management
    They say a picture says a thousand words, which is why it’s important for you to be able to quickly and easily upload images and media to WordPress. Drag and drop your media into the uploader to add it to your website. Add alt text, captions, and titles, and insert images and galleries into your content. We’ve even added a few image editing tools you can have fun with.
  • Full Standards Compliance
    Every piece of WordPress generated code is in full compliance with the standards set by the W3C. This means that your website will work in today’s browser, while maintaining forward compatibility with the next generation of browser. Your website is a beautiful thing, now and in the future.
  • Eenvoudig Thema systeem
    WordPress comes bundled with two default themes, but if they aren’t for you there’s a theme directory with thousands of themes for you to create a beautiful website. None of those to your taste? Upload your own theme with the click of a button. It only takes a few seconds for you to give your website a complete makeover.
  • Uit te breiden met Plugins
    WordPress comes packed full of features for every user, for every other feature there’s a plugin directory with thousands of plugins. Add complex galleries, social networking, forums, social media widgets, spam protection, calendars, fine-tune controls for search engine optimization, and forms.
  • Ingebouwde reacties
    Your blog is your home, and comments provide a space for your friends and followers to engage with your content. WordPress’s comment tools give you everything you need to be a forum for discussion and to moderate that discussion.
  • Zoekmachine geöptimaliseerd
    WordPress is out-of-the-box geoptimaliseerd voor zoekmachines. Voor gedetailleerde SEO controle, zijn er genoeg SEO plugins beschikbaar om dat voor je te doen.
  • Meertalig
    WordPress is available in more than 70 languages. If you or the person you’re building the website for would prefer to use WordPress in a language other than English, that’s easy to do.
  • Gemakkelijke installatie en upgrades
    WordPress has always been easy to install and upgrade. If you’re happy using an FTP program, you can create a database, upload WordPress using FTP, and run the installer. Not familiar with FTP? Plenty of web hosts offer one-click WordPress installers that let you install WordPress with, well, just one click!
  • Importeerders
    Gebruik je een blog of website waar je niet blij mee bent? Heb je een blog bij een gehoste dienst die er mee stopt? WordPress heeft import scripts beschikbaar voor blogger, LiveJournal, Movable Type, TypePad, Tumblr en WordPress. Als jij klaar bent om te verhuizen, dan hebben wij het gemakkelijk voor je gemaakt.
  • Eigenaarschap van jouw data
    Gehoste diensten komen en gaan. Als je ooit gebruik hebt gemaakt van een dienst die verdween dan weet je hoe traumatisch dit kan zijn. Als je ooit advertenties op jouw site zag verschijnen die niet van jou waren, dan was je daar ongetwijfeld niet heel erg blij mee. Wanneer je WordPress gebruikt dan heeft niemand toegang tot jouw content. Blijf eigenaar van je eigen data, alle data; jouw website, jouw content, jouw data.
  • Vrijheid
    WordPress is vrijgegeven onder de GPL licentie welke is gemaakt om jou vrijheden te beschermen. Je bent vrij om WordPress op elke manier die je wenst te gebruiken: installeer het, gebruik het, verander het, distribueer het. Software vrijheid is de fundering waarop WordPress is gebouwd.
  • Community
    As the most popular open source CMS on the web, WordPress has a vibrant and supportive community. Ask a question on the support forums and get help from a volunteer, attend a WordCamp or Meetup to learn more about WordPress, read blogs posts and tutorials about WordPress. Community is at the heart of WordPress, making it what it is today.
