Travel & Tourism Industry Glossary  :  WordPress

WordPress was born out of a desire for an elegant, well-architectured personal publishing system built on PHP and MySQL and licensed under the GPLv2 (or later). It is the official successor of b2/cafelog. WordPress is fresh software, but its roots and development go back to 2001. It is a mature and stable product.  By focusing on user experience and web standards WordPress hopes to create a tool different from anything else out there.

WordPress started as a blogging system, but has evolved to be used as a full content management system and so much more through the thousands of plugins and widgets and themes.
