We once did a poll asking people what their favorite CMS was. WordPress was a run-away winner, but also got many comments of “WordPress isn’t a CMS!!“. Well clearly, in the strictest sense, WordPress is a CMS as it “manages content”. But is WordPress really only suited for blogging, or can it be used for more traditional non-blog sites? In this screencast I attempt to show off a number of WordPress features that make it very “CMS-like” in my opinion. Including page templates, dynamic menus, parent-child relationship pages, and using posts as ancillary content.
