WordPress, the popular content management system, recently celebrated its 20th anniversary.
Since its creation in 2003, WordPress has grown from a simple blogging platform to a powerful and versatile tool used by millions of websites worldwide. In this post, we’ll take a look at the history of WordPress and its major achievements over the past 20 years.
WordPress was created by Matt Mullenweg and Mike Little, who wanted to create a better blogging platform. The first version of WordPress was released on May 27, 2003, and was based on an earlier blogging platform called b2/cafelog. WordPress was initially developed as an open-source platform, meaning that anyone could contribute to its development and use it for free. Over the next few years, WordPress grew in popularity and became more than just a blogging platform.
WordPress was expanded to include features such as custom post types, themes, and plugins, which made it a more versatile tool for creating any type of website.
