It sounds kind of strange, but does the site, http://www.wordpress.org, use the WordPress software to power the webpage structure? I mean, are they using their own software for the whole thing, a portion of it, or not at all?
It is an incredibly well organized site, it has very fast response and load time, and it has a lot of different pages and categories (not "pages" and "categories" in the WordPress sense per se, but using their ordinary meanings). I really admire the designer, and I want to know if it is too hard to make a CMS site like it, using only WordPress.
I have a site that is not really supposed to be a blog, and I am trying to make it look like a regular website. I know that WordPress is being hailed by many to be one of the best open-source CMS packages around, and even better than most payed CMS packages. I am sure there are many sites that use WordPress for non-Blog-exclusive purposes, but wordpress.org is the only one I am very familiar with.
Given the verbose treatise above :-), I would appreciate it if anyone could tell me if wordpress.org is done through the WordPress software, and if so, how a similar (if smaller scale) website could be set up.
