Wordpress works with the Hypertext Preprocessor (PHP) scripting language and requires a MySQL database. The free software is licensed under the GNU General Public License (GNU-GPL). Wordpress can be used to manage multiple posts chronologically, but also to present the subpages of a website regardless of their creation date. The individual posts can belong to one or more categories and be provided with keywords (tags) for SEO purposes, Search Engine Optimization (SEO). The posts can be displayed chronologically in a blog or published via web feeds with RSS feeds and Atom

. Wordpress can be extended and individualized with a variety of plug-ins, widgets and graphical themes.

Through the connection to social media such as Twitter or Facebook, blog entries can be automatically transferred to the user's accounts there.
