WordPress, a Content Management System, has experienced an exponential growth that has it at the top. WordPress is starting to be for blogs what Google and Facebook are for search engines and social media respectively. Apart from the usual characteristics of any CMS, WordPress is being used by millions of users to create and edit their websites.

WordPress offers countless plugins and numerous themes (web page templates) to create web blogs and front web pages. Even if users do not administer a blog actively, they use WordPress to create their front pages and manage the content on their websites.
