Things I hate about WordPress

WordPress is open-end web software used for formation by billions of communities around the globe to generate beautiful websites and blogging sites. It is completely user-friendly. Just because it a front-end to the backend program, that is why many coders hate WordPress. WordPress has lot many shortfalls because WordPress is just a simple platform for Blogging. However, with time, WP started car inventory, lead aggregator and e-commerce, and so on. 100% perfection in all aspects has become a futile approach for WP.  However, focusing on a blogging platform, WP tried with the whole lot and landed up with nothing because of its enormous array. Though WP is the world’s most beautiful CMS but not everyone joining the CMS. WP ranks eighth out of the first fifteen Content Management Software tool.

The security aspects of WP are pathetic.

Two out of five WP is hacked because it is an open-end source; any competent developer can download and visualize the code from the source. This is how WP is vulnerable for the WP developers, as there are no easy, systemic resolutions other than to update WP. For the Script-Kiddie hackers, it is straightforward to use WP to upload malicious files potentially harmful, and the site is hacked.

One of the most beautiful vulnerabilities in WP is also understood and ascertained from its plugins. A recent survey has concluded most plugins are essentials for developing a website. It caused security threats to the websites, and maximum WP sites fall under such vulnerabilities because plugins provide easy and quick access to the websites’ architecture. So if you would like to install WordPress, make sure you are having your Website Title and Tag Line ready.


Initially, WP was built with the suppositions that the website will operate on one server with one system file. With the advent of modern technology and hi-tech architecture, the WP depends on ‘File Transfer Protocol’ for updates. While updating the system through FTP becomes antiquated. The developer puts efforts into resolving the workflow problems that involve resolution, typically through testing and integration before the system goes live. At times, uploading the code directly into the system’s live environment possibly leaves laws with plenty of errors. At times while operating the multi-node web cluster, an updating on all nodes separately is essential. Thus, an error occurs, and typical scrutiny is required.

WP’s data structure looks simple initially, but when resuming with the data structure in WP seems peculiar. WP provides resolutions to minimize the issues, but to fix the problem in a complicated structure, PHP requires its incumbency. Even though SQL editing data becomes easy but that is not the part of WP.

In WP, there are custom menus, widgets, template files, but all are at different places. From a coder’s point of going into four different places to rectify a single page becomes tedious.

As WP is more an open web-based source, that is why spamming has become possible in WP. If there is an error on the web page, then the developer has to go to four different places to rectify it, and finding the source for rectification becomes very tough.  There should be minimum login attempts because if we do not minimize, then there is a chance of brute-force hacking.

Often, switching between different editor modes while site development is the major problem for word press to lose its credibility in the global arena. The hosting problem in WP plays a significant role in uploading the site or ensuring errors while going live. It hampers the overall development of the site as these sites are mostly used for commercial purposes. An Apache server creates many problems due to its frequently updating versions. However, I have found a way to get free hosting from ; you can give it a try for your initial start.

One of the most excellent problems in WordPress is updating the WP.

Updating WordPress Version on regular interval leads to complications and frustrations because the moment we want to stay updated the plugins and themes associated with the earlier version cannot update with the new version thus the website breaks and with no rectifications and the developer gets a warning signal. It often happens when we install new plugins, which do not match the themes and leads to too many errors. Moreover, other plugins show non-compatibility, and the failure becomes more and tough to tackle error repeatedly. In WP, developers cannot edit templates as per the site’s requirement to attract the browser.  Many times coders are lured by the fancy templates, which the coder cannot edit; the simple text in the models sustains the website’s low scalability for the browsers. Even too much content also slows the process of browsing, and there lies a potential shift of customers to other companies’ websites, which leads to loss of revenue.

At times, non-developers remain contended with WP because the WP software does the coding like DIY website persisting with CMS’s behavior. However, non-coders hardly know that themes and plugins are the extra junk, which is equally malicious and turns the site ugly by bloated coding. When WP is bloated with coding, too many themes, versions, and plugins become highly inefficient and for the user and the browser. The site becomes slow, and an error occurs when clicked on particular links. Such issues sluggish the page loading effect and the site crashes. As WP the software does the coding like DYI website so at times an extra plugin, which is not harmonious with the theme, creates cluttered by overlapping of codes to create too many errors to detect the source of the real cause of mismatch of the theme and the plugin. For E-Com, platform word press is not the right platform because WP cannot hold too many contents of the platform, and the site becomes very slow and tends to crash. At times, the learning curve is not as intuitive as an apple product; it is a little tricky for the newbies. It has apparently opened several doors, such as Tumbler for simplifying the admin area for removing particular themes or functions that will put websites in static form.
