KICTANet’s new website: Call for comments

I like some of the responses to my questions. Still, I have to wonder, was
security even considered before going for WP, which is one of the most
targeted by hackers.

When considering time and cost, I might consider WP, but then, do you
consider extra plugins that you might have to purchase, how about updating
issues.

Also, I believe the client has the right to be specific with what they
want. I just found it ironic that KICTANet, the platform with people and
institutions in Technology in the country uses wordPress.

As to the websites that use WordPress, not one of these sites uses WP out
of the box – there is considerable custom development to make these sites
work the way they do, development costing a lot of money. Those sites are
not ‘wordpressbeginner’ grade.
