More Than CMS and Blogging
WordPress is most commonly thought of as a blogging and content mangement system.
When you look at the underlying platform’s core carefully you see all the components you expect in a PHP Framework just waiting to be harnessed.
Pre-Built Backend and Taxonomy
One Super Awesome Application feature of the WordPress framework is the backend is already built. This backend is easily customizable with helper functions, admin objects and user roles.
The Taxonomy included with WordPress has been around a long time and is both flexible and stable. It supports categories and tagging. You can even create custom taxonomies.
WordPress natively supports different content types for posts and pages along with CPTs (Custom Post Types). WordPress allows you to simply add Advanced Custom Fields to content types.
Creating such a powerful back-end with a traditional framework would take hours of development time.
