The article compares the functionality constraints and traffic or lead generation limits of WordPress template-based websites with WebFlow-based websites. Although both WordPress and WebFlow are content management systems (CMS), WordPress is an open-source software, while WebFlow is a SaaS application. Being open-source makes WordPress vulnerable to malicious attacks and hackers. The third-party plugins, which are deemed by many as a star feature of the WordPress CMS, can become a swinging axe as they can cause many websites to come crashing down with new version releases. On the other hand, the closed-source, cloud-based WebFlow platform utilizes built-in settings to regulate changes in the app itself and ward off cyber-attacks.
Another advantage of migrating to WebFlow from WordPress is its ability to generate cleaner codes that are easy to understand and result in faster loading of websites, unlike WordPress’s heavy plugin-based setup. Professional developers are often required when making significant changes to a WordPress website because doing so necessitates having a working knowledge of HTML, CSS, WordPress themes, and plugins. Thankfully, the incredibly intuitive interface of WebFlow makes it relatively easy for website owners to make the necessary changes to the website text and images by themselves without consulting the website developer after every imperative update.
