 +===== WordPress CMS =====

 +**WordPress** was used by more than 26.4% of the top 10 million websites as of April 2016. It is reportedly the easiest and most popular blogging system in use on the Web, supporting more than 60 million websites.\\
 + ​**WordPress** is released under the **GPLv2** (or later) license from the **Free Software Foundation**.\\
 +==== To keep in mind for WordPress sites ====
 +  * Do not use "​admin"​ as a username, it's too obvious for a hacker, be creative and use a hard-to-guess username.
 +  * Do not underestimate the importance of using strong passwords!
 +  * Always update all themes and plugins whether they are in use or not.
 +  * Delete all themes that are not in use.
 +  * Delete all plugins that are not in use.
 +  * Updates are frequent, it's reasonable to log in to check at least once a week.
 +  * When installing plugins or themes always install one at a time, then check if the site is still working normally before installing another one.
 +  * Plugins and specifically themes can and do often crash WordPress.
