(2) A popular open source blog and website publishing program that is installed on the customer's Web server. Introduced in 2003, WordPress is written in PHP and uses a MySQL database. Noted for its rich features, WordPress "Themes" provide numerous templates from which to choose a look and feel. In addition, the site can be enhanced with dialogs such as user registration, user feedback and password protection. Although WordPress was initially developed to create a blog website, it is very popular for authoring websites without blog content. For more information, visit www.wordpress.org.
