WordPress: Beyond A Blog
Although WordPress is known for being a blog platform, it can easily be used for other things. We’ve seen people use it for photo galleries, video sites, podcasts, and full on CMS systems. We wrote a post awhile back about using WordPress as a CMS that talked about some of the various plugins that extend the capabilities of WordPress.
However, from time to time we still get people that are not sure if WordPress is powerful enough to handle their project. Isn’t it for bloggers? That’s a common response when we suggest to small businesses that they should use WordPress to manage their website.

It has some great information about using WordPress as more than a blog and also has some great examples of sites that are utilizing WordPress. Check it out:
As you can see, WordPress is capable of a lot of things. It’s just a matter of testing it out and seeing if it will work for your website. The great news is more and more people are utilizing WordPress, which is great for the community and will ensure that more and more plugins, themes and add-ons continue to come out.
