WordPress is the best Content Management System (CMS). Nearly one forth of the websites are developed on WordPress.

  • WordPress is Free, open source
  • Easy to install, takes less than 5 minutes
  • Easy to manage, there are lots of video tutorials on YouTube
  • Lots of options for customization with themes and plugins, which are also free

WordPress Theme Categories

Most of the themes are developed for versatile usage. But I found that each theme has unique competitive edge for certain type of website. Like, Hueman theme is perfect for blogging but not suitable for company website. So I have made few categories and analyzed the themes for it’s suitable category, those categories are:
