About WordPress

Design TLC uses WordPress, the world's leading website platform. We love WordPress because it is flexible, fun and supported by an amazing community of designers, developers, content marketers and more!

What is WordPress?

WordPress was launched in 2003 as an open source (free) blogging tool. It’s grown to be the most popular content management system (CMS) on the web, powering over 30% of all websites around the world. WordPress is used by global brands, leading companies, newspapers and magazines. Because it is free and so widely used, it is also in continual development and always enhancing and increasing its functionality.

Why WordPress?

WordPress is relatively easy to learn. eliminating the need for on-staff web developers to make updates or post blog content. Website redesigns can be relatively quick and easy as well, and even with a major redesign, the back-end interface remains the same. The default installation of WordPress is already very search engine-friendly. In addition, developers around the world are constantly releasing plug-ins that extend WordPress’s already impressive functionality into new areas.
