The previous WordPress version 3.0 drew headlines when it was released and it currently has over 15 million downloads. WordPress was introduced five years ago so therefore this is relatively new to the Content Management system (CMS) scene and they plan to release a new theme at least once a year. This software popularity has produced large quantity of user generated themes. Some of them charge a fee and some are free. When searching “WordPress Themes” many styles are represented and there is a lot to look at. The installation of Version 3.0 was easy; in fact it was done with a one-click right from your WordPress back end.

Is it really Free Software??

WordPress is free just like any other open source. This is a topic of much debate in the internet software industry even though the base install is free. Other cost is still going to be involved there is cost for edit in the design, functionality and integration. Integrating more customization will incur more cost and since dealing with complex coding this will more time consuming then building a custom site from scratch. Since the software is an open source; Security will be a major concern; please keep in mind hackers and developers can see how it works and your site may be prone to manipulation. A WordPress add on was recently hacked and it was downloaded over 500,000 times and installed in many live WordPress site. There are many variables that should be considered so it is wise to consult a technology company before deciding on open source
