WordPress sites that don’t look like WordPress

WordPress isn’t just for blogs- in fact, the word blog needs to die. WordPress builds a website- actively served, using a sophisticated Content Management System that is easy to use. It’s so easy- that smart companies are starting to use it to manage content and keep their site up-to-date, and W3C compliant for a lot less money.

Here are some of the sites we’ve found using WordPress as a back end. To verify- you just type /wp-admin after the url.

Some, more than others look like a more conventional site. The point is, data from a database can be formatted anyway you want. The key is understanding the real beauty of a WordPress site is that everything offers the ability to build community.

  1. I think wordpress is great as s CMS with the right plugins you can do about anything.

  2. I have yet to mess with WP but plan to on a few new projects i’m working on. I’ve got to say though all in all Joomla has been GREAT for CMS. I give thanks to Mashable for writing up about them a while back.

    http://www.hotair.com pulls the same trick – WP without looking like it.

  4. I’ve just learnt WP having moved over from Dreamweaver and NetObjects Fusion – can’t believe I didn’t do it sooner. These are my first WP sites – my own business at http://www.computacure.co.uk and the village where I live in the UK http://www.redmarley.org.uk. What do you think?

  5. @Bruce- I think you are building links back to your site- and that your sites look a lot like WordPress. But, congratulations on learning the right way to build a site. Cheers!
