8 reasons to wave WordPress goodbye and plumb for ProcessWire.

And, live happily ever after.

WordPress is a good blog system. But as a CMS, it comes with more than its fair share of warts, pimples, freckles and even cancer that you, the client, have to live with. We understand that because we have built sites with WordPress for over 10 years.

If you’re running a large website or e-commerce business on Wordpress, you are likely to run into trouble, sooner rather than later. You end up paying maintenance costs for a system that was never meant to handle your project. In all probability, you got your site done by a WordPress developer who was singing it's paens. Now, you have handle a host of issues.

Have you felt frustrated by these WordPress problems?

  1.  Database failures - too many requests?
  2.  Hackers, and hack bots, from all over the Internet mysteriously taking up residence on your site and causing havoc in your system
  3.  Server lock-downs because of scripts that your host complains about
  4.  Inexplicable slow down of your website
  5.  Scaling issues - 1000s of pages, 100,000 images…that break the site
  6.  Expensive hosting because bloated code needs extra horsepower and extra duct tape
  7.  Expensive customization issues - things need to be tailored to how WordPress works not how you do
  8.  Upgrades causing breaks to the system, theme, ending up with hours of troubleshooting and downtime

You have lived with WordPress and are getting absolutely sick of it.

We know that you are probably used to WordPress, but it’s a bit like saying that you have learned to eat soup with chopsticks. You have not shifted because you are on the world’s most popular CMS. But that’s marketing, not reality. If you are uncomfortable or irritated with working on WordPress, then it’s time to change.

Plumb for ProcessWire and live life.
