    If you wish to share regular updates about your business with your customers then you need to create posts, offers and news on your website that is possible and will be very easy with WordPress rather than working hard with html pages and WordPress is seo friendly CMS.

    Wordpress is 'hard' to install
    For a really small / simple website I would customize an html template over Wordpress

    Hi everybody!

    My personal opinion - Wordpress is better, it has much more useful tools and instruments.

    The fact that this is an "or" question says so much about what's WRONG with modern development. I mean sure, I often joke it takes giant brass balls of thunder to call what most Wordpress templates "HTML", but that doesn't mean as a site developer somewhere along the way you might end up needing to use HTML with WP.

    Especially if you want something more than a stock template, or something their in-built editor doesn't provide. More so if you end up needing to optimize for accessibility, search, or hosting costs.

    Side note, funny to see a bump of a two year old poll. Guess the low post count "I need enough posts to spam links" types are looking for more things they can mindlessly "me too" in one sentence or less.

    Me too.

    And yeah, if you install a decent caching plugin wordpress can be pretty easy going on your CPU. W3 bypasses wordpress completely when configured correctly. When I decide I want to change one phone number in a theme I don't want to change dozens of HTML files. How is this even a question?

    Since wordpress provides mutiple builtin templates and varieties of plugins which supports advanced functionalities, makes the website building task a bit easier. It is very easy to learn wordpress for a person with out programming background.

    If we consider the server side, the wordpress installation and configuration is easier and not defines a complex hierarchy, we can update, backup,restore,migrate more easily than other CMS softwares available.

    The wordpress provides plugin support to improve the performance and the experts do manual optimization of the websites at high extends.

    For these reasons millions of word press websites are still successfully running around the world.

    WordPress has great plugins and support. HTML can be used withing WordPress to spice up the look and perhaps SEO.

    It depends on what your goal is. If you want to just have one or two page sites, go with pure html. If you want interactvity, go with Wordpress.

    If you go with html, you can scale up, but you will pretty much just be repeating what has already been done with Wordpress. Why reinvent the wheel?

    That really depends on your need. A HTML website is perfect for me, but not for clients as they don’t have a clue about code.

    If you are designing websites for other people than without a doubt WordPress is the perfect solution as it’s simple to setup, has many Add-Ons and its free. Your customer can painlessly manager their own website.

    There are a lot of CMS out there that cost money and does not even scratch the surface when compared to WordPress.

    FYI - WordPress powers 30% of the internet.

    Are you for real? ALL webpages are powered by HTML including Turdpress pages but according to YOUR reply you seem to think Turdpress is NOT powered by HTML. Maybe you think TURDPRESS is powered by TURDS which may be a valid point considering the crap HTML that it uses.


    Since Turdpress outputs TEN times the code needed to do a job, that must mean that 300% of the internet is trash.

    The harsh truth is that — we love code and want it to be concise and efficient. However other people (Clients) couldn’t care less whether it’s 100 lines of code or 100,000 lines of code.

    I have noticed that the design is what people really care about and the ability for them to easily manage their content. Not the code. You have to give your clients what they want.

    That’s not entirely true. Web pages can be powered by a plain text file, php, and of course HTML. For example
    <?php
    echo “Hello World!”;

    Well, no webpage is actually powered by HTML. It’s powered by the server. The browser interprets HTML which then renders how your webpage looks.

    XML et alia are a kissing cousins to HTML and as such can be considered part of the HTML family. All are simple text files dependent upon browser rendering.

    PHP cannot be rendered by any browser I know of, so cannot produce pages without help from an HTML text file.

    As much as you are motivated now eventually it will diminish overtime...and by then you don't want to waste time to do the nitty gritty of html coding even the simplest one because it will annoyed and slow you down. So better start with the simplest and avoid the unnecessary works with wordpress
