Not at all! One of the best things about WordPress is that it’s designed to be as easy to use as possible. In fact, that’s the whole idea behind a content management system (CMS) – it’s to allow anyone within a company to be able to pick up the basics and to be able to upload new content to the website.
As well as being easy to install and set up regardless of whether you’re a newbie or not, it’s also easy to create new pages and new blog posts without any prior knowledge of coding or web design. WordPress comes with a WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) editor, which makes it as easy to use as Microsoft Word or Google Docs, and there are also a number of other visual editors out there on the market that you can install as a third-party plugin.
Of course, it’s always an advantage to be able to code, especially if you want to build your own WordPress themes and plugins from scratch. But it’s far from a necessity, and it’s pretty likely that you’ll be able to find the look and functionality that you need using existing plugins.
As a rule, though, you’ll be able to do everything yourself with no knowledge of programming languages required, which is exactly why it’s used by so many people. You certainly won’t find another CMS that’s as powerful and versatile without compromising on its ease of use and user-friendliness.
