WorPress Disadvantages

According to some programmers and users, WordPress content management system has more advantages than disadvantages. But still there are some and now I’m going to mention some of the WordPress disadvantages.

•    If you want to introduce some changes (for example, to remove a field), you will need the knowledge of PHP.
•    In spite of a great number of available templates, they look practically the same. If you want to have a really unique look, you need unique changes and in this case graphics modification requires the knowledge of CSS and HTML.
•    In comparison with Magento shopping cart or Drupal, to work effectively you need to have loads of plug-ins installed. But this great number of plug-ins can significantly worsen the performance of the site.
•    WordPress lacks PHP security since it isn’t protected as other apps. Consequently, this can endanger the content on your site. 
•    You can face some problems and difficulties while modifying tables and graphics unlike, for example, in Joomla.
•    Since additional non-standard fields need additional syntax, it makes SQL queries rather complicated.

WordPress is ideal for creating a simple website. It is one of the most easy-to-use solutions that can be found online. Most beginners prefer this CMS. Professional users with more complicated requirements will have to install additional plug-ins to make WordPress closer to Drupal or Joomla but, even Drupal site development specialists highly recommend WordPress CMS for beginners.
