WordPress still powers 30% of the web, which is surprising, since it has many shortcomings, which I don’t need to go into here.

It’s also easy to understand why it’s so popular. Outside of coding stuff yourself, hardly any other platform offers that level of control.


WordPress enables anyone to get a decent looking website online, relatively quickly, without touching a single line of code.

We’ve always wondered:

“What if we took all that’s good with WordPress, and rewrote it for the modern web - what would that look like?”


What if WordPress was developed today, as a modern CMS, powered by a modern stack?

This is what we have so far - a modern CMS should be:

- Open source
- Flexible
- Design-led
- Based on a modern stack


We want you to join the conversation, around what WordPress would look like as a modern CMS, if we rebuilt it today:
