Why we don’t use WordPress anymore

| Posted | Comments | , , ,

Interesting post on Medium that sums up my top reasons for not using WordPress. Lately, I’ve been thinking about the popularity of WordPress. It’s by far the most popular CMS platform on the web, which makes it a big target for hackers. Seems like lately I've been seeing more and more and more stories about XSS (cross-site scripting) vulnerabilities with WordPress. For the types of sites most web designers and developer use WordPress for, I wonder how much interest there is for more modern, more secure alternatives. Modern platforms like SilverStripe, Statamic, and October offer far more flexibility while maintaining security.
