I'm curious to get the opinion of other web developers about something that's been bugging me lately: The age old Wordpress vs custom coded/static website debate. Personally, I'm pro Wordpress (That is to say, I approve of it. Not "I am a professional".). But I've noticed there are also some very "set in their ways" developers who believe that ALL websites should be custom coded from scratch, otherwise it isn't a proper website. They hold the belief that Wordpress is another cheap gimmick like Wix or Blogger. Now don't get me wrong, I don't believe for a second that Wordpress is the end all solution to all websites ever. Sometimes you do need a custom solution. However, I believe that the only reasons you'd ever want to custom code ALL websites from scratch is because you're either clinging to the past, or you just like making things difficult so you can charge more. Personally, I find both of these excuses to be quite narrow minded. A brief browse around crappy forums such as DP, or some Facebook job groups will reveal the mentality of such people. They'll come up with a thousand reasons why people who use Wordpress are not "real" web designers. Sure, some people deliver bad service, but that's the case in any market. Don't blame the tool. Unless the tool happens to be Wix or Blogger. Then you really aren't a real web designer. My question is this: Do you enjoy making life difficult for yourself by clinging to your dying craft? Are you just butthurt that your market has become saturated by people who can do your job quicker than you can? Seriously though, I genuinely do want other opinions. Why should ALL websites be custom coded?
