Among all the content management systems, two of the glittering names are WordPress and October, where WordPress has been a famed entity over the years as compared to that of October, especially when it comes to deal with 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 the command line option. WordPress claims a bit of longer duration with a duration of 4 to 5 minutes for the installation, but it is not true as it almost requires 30 minutes to get it accomplished.


WordPress contains a major part due to the sheer quantity of questions and answers available. Being a vast module in the market since 2003, an expectation for a huge amount of doubts from the users is not a surprising act. 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 tasks required in October just without any kind of search for answers on the web.


WordPress is far way better when compared with October. The WordPress.com homepage states the power with 29% of the web and it is enough to describe the popularity of the same. On the other side, October CMS is lagging much behind in the popularity stakes and it’s almost unrealistic to expect that it will ever be able to catch up near about to WordPress.

Ease Of Use

WordPress is not that much easy to operate as plug-ins may have their settings that can be controlled within the plug-in sections. But in the case of October CMS, it is very simple to use without any need of searching over the internet for backend, there are tabs for pages and settings for each instance 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 a single tag in CMS templates. Whereas the performance of WordPress can be improved with the enhancement in the quality of plug-ins. It is slow and requires plug-ins to bring it up to a reasonable level.
