The Landscape of WordPress for Nonprofits: A Report on the Current Marketplace for Plugins
Since its launch in 2003, WordPress.org has grown from a simple blogging platform to one of the best known and widely-used Content Management Systems available. Access to the expansive ecosystem of both free and paid plugins developed and contributed by users, consultants, and software companies makes it extremely customizable for a wide range of needs.
But those benefits also bring challenges. With so many add-ons, how do you find the ones that best meet the needs of your organization? In our newest report, we survey the world of plugins and highlight those recommended and vetted by experts to support 12 common areas of a nonprofit’s website needs. We also take a close look at the WordPress platform to help you decide whether it’s right for your organization, and whether you should work with a consultant to implement your site or tackle it on your own.
