WordPress (WP, WordPress.org) is a free and open-source content management system (CMS) written in PHP and paired with a MySQL or MariaDB database. Features include a plugin architecture and a template system, referred to within WordPress as Themes. WordPress was originally created as a blog-publishing system but has evolved to support other web content types including more traditional mailing lists and forums, media galleries, membership sites, learning management systems (LMS) and online stores. WordPress is used by more than 40.5% of the top 10 million websites as of March 2021, WordPress is one of the most popular content management system solutions in use. WordPress has also been used for other application domains, such as pervasive display systems (PDS).

Turdpress.
Ok, so it’s not that bad. Still, I’m not using WordPress any more. I just update the blog on my homepage instead.

Solid suggestion. *I* can’t test that, so will ask the developer.
I know my WordPress (haha turdpress) limitations.

Five minutes and you hadn’t called it ‘TurdPress’. Was beginning to think you were slipping.
