Debunking false clichés about WordPress

WordPress is the most used CMS on the internet for the development of web pages, however, there are some false myths that have become popular and some customers have commented to us once, we will explain some of them below:

It’s for blogs only

In its beginnings it was intended for blogs, but over time it has evolved into a complete CMS for the development of websites and web applications.

Quite complex projects can be carried out and with the use of the REST API you can develop external applications that connect to the WordPress system.

Not suitable for complex websites or large companies

Due to our professional experience we can say that we have developed quite complex websites with WordPress, both for SMEs and for large companies and multinationals.

On the official website they show us the best websites made with WordPress, in some of them we see internationally known companies and brands, among them: Disney, Sony, Meta, Microsoft…

In the WordPress.org official website we can find some examples:

Not safe

WordPress has a large community of users and developers who are constantly working to improve security. No system is 100% secure, but if you keep your CMS up-to-date, plugins, and implement the right security measures, it’s much less likely that you’ll have security issues.

Therefore, it is very important to web maintenance of WordPress periodically to be calmer against possible attacks and threats security.

It’s slow

Typically, WordPress is fast if it has been developed and configured correctly. It is important to consider several aspects: with proper optimization, development, and server configuration of a WordPress site you can achieve excellent performance results.

For a correct load speed optimization of the website is recommended to consider:

  • Optimized template with clean or custom code
  • Configure the server correctly
  • Load only necessary code
  • Avoid unnecessary plugins
  • Optimization of code, images and content

You are limited by your templates

The pre-designed templates help us make fast sites and these may have their limits for the user, although then any developer can add and modify functionality using a child theme “child-theme”.

In any case, for a professional website we recommend the development of a custom template for the project, where professional designers and developers do the work completely as needed of the client.

The custom template development allows us to have complete freedom in the design of each page and element of the web. In addition, with the Gutenberg blog editor (native to WordPress), it allows us to create custom blogs with a professional design, in which the user editor of the site can use on the different pages and posts what will you need on the web.


WordPress is a very powerful tool that if used correctly and by professionals is the perfect solution for most websites.

If your business is based on the internet or your website is of vital importance to your company, we recommend hiring a professional team for design, development and digital marketing.
