SilverStripe or WordPress?
Ultimately, your choice will be determined by your requirements and your budget. If you want a unique site with specific functionalities, SilverStripe is great, but if you’re on a tight budget and requirements aren’t so complex, WordPress maybe the better option.
SilverStripe isn’t just a CMS framework, so you can do pretty much anything on it from brochure sites, to complex business critical and transaction systems. However, you can’t upgrade it at the click of a button as with WordPress.
WordPress offers publishing tools, flexibility, a large user community, and a variety of plugins for added functionality. However, your requirements must match the plugin’s offerings.
SilverStripe and WordPress are quality pieces of software – the key is to secure great web developers who can create the features and functionality you need and provide the right support to get most out of your website.
