WordPress vs October CMS

December 19, 2018

Among all the content management system, two of the glittering names are WordPress and October, where WordPress has become more famous as compared to that of October, especially in case of a content management of the website.

Let’s have some more elaboration for both the systems:


Talking about the installation both the systems consist of an installer wizard but October includes a facility of command line option. WordPress claims to have just a little amount of time with the duration of 4 to 5 minutes for the installation, but it is not true as it almost requires 30 minutes for the same.



As far as support for the particular CMS is concerned, WordPress contains a major part due to the sheer quantity of questions and answers available. Being a vast module of the market since 2003, an expectation for a huge amount of doubts from the users’ end is not a surprising thing. While on the other hand, October is not that much aged as compared to that of WordPress, because of less amount of content on the internet we can do any of the technical task required on October just without having to search for answers on the web.



Stepping towards popularity, WordPress is far way better when compared with October. The WordPress.com homepage states the power with 29% of the web, which is enough and amazing number for describing the popularity of the same. On the other hand, October CMS is a long way behind in the popularity stakes and it’s almost unrealistic to expect that it will ever catch up near about to WordPress.


Ease Of Use

WordPress is not that much easy to operate as plug-ins may have their own settings controlled within the plug-in sections. But in the case of October CMS it is very simple to use without searching to find what you need, for backend, there are tabs for pages and settings for each instance clearly identifying its purpose.



October CMS has added some of the nice performance features such as asset minification where CSS and javascript files can be clubbed and minified just by the help of single tag in CMS templates. Whereas the performance of WordPress can be improved with the enhancement in the quality of plug-ins. Basically, it is slow and requires plug-ins to bring it up to a reasonable level and these premium plug-ins require cost somewhere about $100.
