WordPress is a powerful personal publishing platform with many features designed to publish your Internet experience as simple, pleasant and enjoyable as possible. It offers a freely distributable publishing platform, standards compliant, fast, light and free, with special parameters and features and an extraordinarily adaptable core.
Technical License and Environment
License: WordPress is licensed under the GPL
Technical environment: PHP (v4.2 or higher) and MySQL (v3.23.x or higher) are required.
Managing and administering the weblog
Local installation: WordPress is designed to be installed on your own web server or shared hosting. Unlike third-party services, you have the assurance that zou can access and modify everything in your weblog, if you need it. This also means that you can install WordPress on your computer at home or office or even on an Intranet.
Portable core: You can choose to place the WordPress file tree that form the administration interface of your public weblog in the same folder as your weblog or all other directory. For example, if you want to place your weblog on http://teleactivities.com (public_html is the “root” of your public web server or web host) and you want to place the WordPress files in http://teleactivities.com/wordpress (public_html/wordpress) you can do it!
UTC compatible: WordPress allows you to set your time as an offset to Universal Time (UTC), and all elements related to time are stored in the database in GMT, which is a universal standard. Among other things, this helps you display the correct time on your server, even if your hosting server is located in another time zone.
Gzip compression: You can save bandwidth by enabling gzip option in your WordPress installation. WordPress compresses the content when a visitor’s browser supports this feature. This option requires that the mod_gzip module is available on your Apache web server hosting your WordPress.
User management: WordPress uses a rights management system to allow users access to certain functions. You can restrict the ability to create and edit content for a user by changing its level.
User profiles: Each user on your weblog can, if he wishes, define a profile by entering information such as their email address, alias for instant messaging, etc. Each user can choose the way this information is visible on the weblog.
Easy installation and update: The installation system in 5 minutes WordPress is unbeatable at ease. Update your weblog to the latest version of WordPress is also easy and should use even less time!
Dynamic generation of page: No need to rebuild all of the pages in each update of your weblog or anything like that. All pages are generated instantly for each query using the database and presentation templates. This means that posting an article or modify the presentation is as fast as possible and the necessary storage space is minimal
Internationalization and localization: You can create a weblog localized and made available in the language of your choice. Gettext is used to translate and localize WordPress into every corner.
