    WordPress has been a popular choice for website development, but it’s not without its drawbacks. Let's explore eight common pain points developers encounter with WordPress and see how Marketpath CMS offers solutions to combat these issues.

    Security Vulnerabilities

    WordPress's popularity, and its reliance on 3rd party plugins, makes it a prime target for hackers. In fact, the number of WordPress vulnerabilities increased by 25% in 2022. Website hacks and security issues are one of the main frustrations that agencies and developers have with WordPress, as security issues can have a significant financial impact on their clients.

    Customizing WordPress themes is often frustrating due to its rigid structure. This means that different components of WordPress, such as the core system, themes, and plugins, are tightly integrated. Any modification or customization in one area can potentially impact other areas of the system.
