Overview of WordPress Hacks

WordPress is a free open source blogging software and dynamic content management system (CMS) based on PHP and MySQL. WordPress was initially developed to be a new and innovative way of writing blogs but has now evolved into one of the most used website managing systems around the world. The most important features include a plugin architecture and a template system.

WordPress was first released on May 27 in 2003 by its founders Matt Mullenweg and Mike Little as a free software licensed under GPLv2. The first released version was 0.7 and not until January 3 2004 the WordPress version 1 was released. Currently the version has reached the number of 4.1 (Dinah) which was released on December 18 2014.
