But what is most striking is the decline of other CMS, such as Drupal and Joomla.
Regarding our country, Spain, the implementation of WordPress follows going up. If a few months ago we saw that it was behind 65% of the webs, today that figure goes up to 66% if we add all the versions of the graph.
As for WooCommerce, the software for creating online stores for WordPress, has increased another 1% since the last report, being currently 42% of all e-commerce far above the rest of competitors, and light years away of other CMS.
In this case, again, there are no statistics by country, because there are so many versions that the graph was blurred and made it incomprehensible.
You can be sure that you have chosen the right CMS, because WordPress is the leading CMS and will continue to be so for a long time.
I hope that this blog has helped something in this growth and consolidation, and if not we will keep trying.
Although I acknowledge myself having contributed on occasion, more for having a good time than anything else, to encourage competitiveness between WordPress and other CMS open source like Joomla or Drupal, the reality is that the real competition of WordPress is Wix .
Yes, it is something that you have heard me comment several times lately, that the real competition of WordPress are not Joomla or Drupal, but Wix .
do not They are ideal for business, or customizable, often not even expandable or easy to export, but there they are, competing with the same market as WordPress: users who want to make a website on their own easily and quickly.  In fact, in countries like Spain the CMS implementation statistics, if we do not discriminate against only open source ones, the lead the page constructor of 1 & 1 and Wix and with a huge – huge – implementation of Jimdo.
What open source CMS can compete right now with ads like this?
Visual layouters and 50% share market
 Every day I read criticisms of the visual formatters it does not matter if it is Avada Visual Composer or Divi especially by WordPress programmers " guardians of essences ".
It's a debate that takes me back to the beginnings of open-source CMS, when lifelong HTML programmers criticized the users and developers of CMS like the programmers / dumb users who were filling in code crap with the network.
And look where you go! curiously only a few years later, the same defenders of the CMS today get great, using the same arguments as the old programmers, against the visual layout, shortcodes, and even the use of plugins . 
Or have you never heard that about " I'd rather use code than plugins "? Let's see …
Is it that the plugins are not code? Is it that the plugins write them useless? Do you feel yourself a better programmer than those who have developed plugins such as WooCommerce, BuddyPress or Contact Form 7? And if so, why do not I see your plugins in the WordPress.org plugins directory? Or is it that you keep your wonderful codes just for you?
Fortunately the vast majority of the great programmers release their codes in plugins that we can all use to give life to our webs created with WordPress, but still many nonsense is read.
Much of the success of WordPress is due to the plugins but above all to the creators of those codes that, instead of saving them for their clients or friends, they decide to release them every day for the WordPress community . Does that make you poor? Not at all, those who adapt to the times find new business models to exploit their free codes such as premium utilities, additional services, extension plugins, etc., etc.
Sorry to give me a bit dry, but is that one listens and reads so many things out there that I open the flesh of listening to nonsense, many times against the culture of open source, and even common sense.
If WordPress wants to reach 50% market share it must compete with Wix or the web creator of 1 & 1 because that is what the market is looking for, your client.
And yes, the CMS have promoted users "do it yourself" but Is that bad? Is it perverse that today an SME can create its own website to start your business without investing thousands of euros before you even start? I think not, and open source CMS like WordPress have contributed to this, offering a free, easy-to-use, free web creation solution
WordPress has helped to democratize creation web and I can understand that there are programmers who think that it will take away clients – captives of their arcane knowledge – but they are wrong.
What causes this paradigm shift is that the programmer must be in continuous evolution and learning and adapt to the needs of customers, offering solutions appropriate to the client's objectives, not their own technical tastes.
I'm not saying that clean solutions should not be offered, but that we should do the best possible work with the tools that give the client freedom, and the visual layout designers offer them exactly that.
Only with cover layout tools like Divi and others is like WordPr ess can really compete with the commercials on Wix or 1 & 1 television, so that the client will feel able to launch their business on the network quickly and easily.
Does this mean that the programmer will be left without job? Not at all, there are great developers who are now creating applications for these visual maquedores, improving their code, offering their own models, creating plugins, shortcodes and codes to expand or improve their possibilities, and you, what are you waiting for, the world go backwards, involucione?
Matt also sees it like this: The soap opera
Believe it or not, Matt Mullenweg must also have my point of view, not There is more to see in the soap opera that has recently gotten attacking Wix – I think rightly – to steal WordPress code or even accusing them of pretending to resemble WordPress, alluding to that initially called WixPress .
In case you want to follow the soap opera, then the Wix CEO answered Matt indicating that yes, they have taken WordPress code for their mobile editor but that then they released it on GitHub, and incidentally, the stone that WordPress advertised as a blog creation tool to later change to a web creation platform, imitating Wix, was released.
Come on, a joke father, but which denotes where the war is going, whoever wins each specific battle.
Another interesting fact is the approach that is being given to the default themes of WordPress, the famous Twentyloquesea more and more focused on the corporate client and less on blogs.
But WordPress is better!
WordPress is a thousand times better than Wix or the web creator of 1 & 1, Weebly and others do we review in what stands out?
Free plugins  Free themes
Easy to program
But it turns out that that's not the first thing the user who wants a website wants, what he wants is this … 
And can WordPress compete with this?
Yes, well …
The future of WordPress goes through the visual layout
ShortCake to avoid l lack of control of shortcodes now, but you do not have to face the future, but confront it and be part of it.
I bet for the future of WordPress but it inevitably happens because becomes the best application to create websites easily and quickly, with a visual interface for all audiences, with a robust, flexible and open code, created by the best programmers in the world who constantly recycle to offer the best possible technologies with the client in his target.
And you? Do you prefer a WordPress only for advanced users or that suits all types of users? I think that's the big question.
The day October 22, 2015 God willing, from 22:00 (Spanish time) will be developed the definitive battle between WordPress and Joomla in which known experts in each of these CMS will debate to try to reach the conclusion of which of the two content managers is best to develop a project .
#BatallaFriki is a training event, with a ludic touch, which faces 3 experts in 3 ICTs (information and communication technologies), to co-create an academic and professional forum that favors learning and networking.  The first edition (January 17, 2014) will be dedicated to comparing (in a practical level mostly) the 3 most powerful content managers in the world: WordPress, Joomla and Drupal .
the " Battle " (seminar), each CMS will be represented by a " Geek " (speaker), who will demonstrate his experience through practical cases and frequently asked questions, from the moderator and from the students.
The battle will consist of 2 main parts, 1st part or dialectic battle and 2nd part or battle with weapons.
The registration has a unique price of 15 € and the places are very limited. The inscriptions can only be done online, on the web: http://www.batallafriki.com/

My mouth hurts to remember and give figures about tremendous growth and popularity of WordPress but there is no better way to check it than to see it in a single image.
By courtesy of WPthemes.co.nz we have this graph that shows, next to the curve of other CMS how Joomla, Drupal or Blogger, the different major versions of WordPress in a timeline where you can clearly see the growth and popularity of WordPress .
According to the latest Technorati report, WordPress is the most used content management system well above the rest of CMS. If in 2012 48% of the Top 100 blogs worked with WordPress, in 2013, are already 52% of the most popular blogs using WordPress .
Learning how to use a content manager depends a lot on the approach of its developers. Until a few years ago the CMS were focused on companies that were going to serve customers, and that is why the learning curve of the CMS was usually high, very thought about programmers.
This was very logical, since there were many people living from that and almost no one was considering – or knew it was possible – to personally manage their website or their company's, these things were delegated to computer consultants or web programmers.
But the thing changed little by little …
My first standard CMS (I tried other made-to-measure ones before) was PHP Nuke and I still remember the sufferings I went through to perform simple tasks, let alone manage it.
Later, with Mambo – later Joomla – the sky opened and I perceived what the future of the CMS should be. However, the content managers were still too oriented to programmers and webmasters, doing complicated tasks that I thought should be simple.
I usually comment that the evolution of CMS is similar to the history of computing which was first intended for companies until a company called Apple thought that those computers should be user-oriented and designed graphical interfaces that still today remain a standard of usability.  With the CMS the same thing happened and although Joomla improved a lot in terms of publication facilities for publishers, I still had hindrances in terms of file management, let alone the administration, which was quite cumbersome.
Drupal is similar but even more thought of in developers. The first time I used it I was pleasantly surprised by the simplicity of its administration compared to Joomla, but it suffered from many shortcomings, especially for the novice user. After many sleepless nights reviewing documentation I decided that I had to use my life for something more practical.
And here came WordPress that little manager thought about blogs, that is, about people, that little little was increasing its possibilities, but without ever losing the original focus: oriented to users not to programmers .
And I think that is the fruit of its success, not having lost the original orientation, and increasing its functionalities, becoming a powerful and adaptable CMS surpassing the other content managers, but without losing the point of view that it should be oriented to any type of user .
That is why today the WordPress learning curve is the least, which requires less effort from the user . And does this mean that it is not powerful enough for the developer? Well, neither does it, quite the contrary. Its well-organized structure, ease of programming using hooks and functions gives a freedom, flexibility and scalability to the developer currently unsurpassed in the world of CMS.
And of course there are WordPress courses but what they usually offer are even faster, expert-oriented learning paths to adapt all the knowledge and tricks of the WordPress ecosystem to the needs of the individual , not because it's difficult.
That's why, just for that, WordPress is the king of CMS for a long time while the rest do not change their focus, and look towards the user.

Surely more than one client has asked you that their editors do not need to enter the WordPress administration area in order to publish .
And if not, it has even occurred to you to offer the opportunity to your visitors of to publish articles as guests without even the need to register.
Or maybe it's that you miss the editor on the cover of Joomla?
Well, whatever your case, and like almost everything in WordPress, it is absolutely possible, in fact it is very easy and we have several options to do it. Let's see a few …
1. Guest editor
Guest editor is a plugin through which you can offer your visitors leave their articles as guests. The best thing is that they do not even have to register. You only need to enable a special page, which you configure in the plugin settings, where you will leave your publications.
The entries will not be published automatically but you must approve them, which seems to me the most appropriate way to allow this type of functionality .
2. Front-end Editor
Front-end editor is another fantastic plugin, but in this case what allows you is not creating new entries but editing existing ones without having to enter the WordPress Desktop.
Do not use the TinyMCE editor but a different visual editor, but also very effective. The only requirement is that you need PHP 5 or higher to make it work. The best thing is that it adapts to any topic, it is indifferent. To edit an entry you just have to double click on it and the editor opens. A joy.
3. One quick post
Compatible with WordPress and BuddyPress, One quick post allows the creation and editing of entries on the cover, without enter the Desktop.
Supports custom entry types and has multiple options, such as file upload and even geolocation. It is as complete as you can find.
4. Quick post widget
The easiest way to offer guest articles on your site is Quick post widget . You install it and it offers you a new widget that you can place where you want and, from this moment, your visitors can send articles without registering. Also, since the last version, you can enable the "inline" editor on a page of your choice, you just have to add the "shortcode" [quick-post-page] to make it work.
You can configure a lot of options in the widget though the editor itself is pretty simple, but enough for most users.
Well, that's what I found, if you know any more, tell us in the comments.
