Is wordpress best for regular type sites (3 posts)

    I own many regular sites that I built with Dreamweaver, and I own some blogs that I built with WordPress.

    Both systems have their advantages. But some things I love about WordPress is the Pinging, standard RSS Feed, and that it is web based, so I can make changes from any computer.

    Question:
    Which system is better for regular type sites ?? like product based affiliate sites.

    Are there any downsides to using wordpress for regular sites ??

    Honestly, any web-based system for publishing site content is going to limit you in some way. Thankfully WordPress does a pretty good job at minimizing such limitations. But downsides?

    It all depends on what one intends to do with a site. A few static documents hardly requires WordPress in the background. But if one intends to provide regularly updated material, it's certainly a nice way to maintain it.

    I've been using WP as a content management system (CMS) forever now... I love it. It takes some tweaking and all, like getting rid of the code for comments completely so that it doesn't say "sorry, comments are closed." when you disallow them, creating a static home page, stuff like that. but once you learn how to decipher what needs to stay, what goes, and what changes, it's a snap.

    I've also got lots of happy clients using it now too, so that they can make updates and changes themselves, and then I can go in and do my SEO work behind them, without having to completely come up with new content myself. It's pretty dang cool.
