Last week we went step-by-step on how to Create a WordPress Church Events Page. We only scratched the surface of how deep WordPress can be as a CMS. Sure, WordPress is great for spinning blogs and putting together a basic website, but when it comes to more advanced functions, it’s tempting to start learning another CMS, dare I say, like Drupal (at least I didn’t say, Joomla!).
Instead of learning something completely new, it may be wiser to dig deeper in a CMS that you’re already familiar with. WordPress is great if you want to build with plugins and sometimes it’s just as easy and efficient to do so, but if you want to do more with WordPress as a CMS with just plugins, you’ll eventually hit a wall. You will build out a site that is so fragile and tangled, you’ll be afraid to update anything.
