There are many reasons why WordPress became popular CMS, but we think these are the two important ones: Marketplace and ability to build and integrate custom plugin. Of all the open source cms, WordPress offers has maximum number of themes and plugin in the marketplace making it economical to build simple websites is it’s architecture to build and integrate custom plugin. WordPress core offers basic functionality. WordPress has a big marketplace to get free and premium plugins which helps keep the overall development cost low. Since it’s open user can take an existing plugin and customize the plugin to the business need.
Here at cmsMinds, we offer wordpress custom plugin development services or customize an existing plugin. We strive to limit the use of customization as it impacts future maintenance. As plugins have security and other updates all the customizations are lost if they are automatically updated. We strive to find plugin in the marketplace that matches closely to the requirements, but there are instances that it becomes inevitable but to build a custom plugin. In past we’ve built custom wordpress plugins for our customers where we realized that the effort to customize the existing plugin is higher then just building from scratch.
