    These are great looking sites using WordPress, thanks for putting them up. What’s missing though is a sentence on what you think is so special/unique about each one.

    I love to see examples of WordPress being used as a complete CMS versus just a blog engine. This is a great list. I am bookmarking this as inspiration!

    Thanks for the post!

    A great selection of beautifully designed websites! I am using WordPress as CMS too. The only thing I wished would be better is the menu. You always have to do a ‘detour’ to get the pages you want in the menu. Pagemash is a useful plugin this regard, but something like it should be built in WordPress by default.

    Having been using WordPress for the last few years I would say it is one of the most useful and easiest CMS’ for designers, developers and users to create, develop and maintain websites and these sites are all great examples of its power, good article.

    I am wondering whether upgrading to WP 3.0 will affect my current theme? I heard that a couple plug-ins have problems after upgrading, but might the upgrade break themes too? Does anybody have information on that? Thanks for answering!

      Great idea Osman. btw how long have you been your wits up and running? good one for the audience. the best way to build traffic is to build up traffic by sharing and giving out other people more traffic.

    Looking at this gallery of sites, I always compare them mentally to early web design efforts or at least mine (which I remember the most and were pretty terrible). I noticed how sites migrated from having all the info laid out vertically to now horizontally (but no rolling off the page) placing blocks of different data next to each other. I’ve always been curious as to when this method of laying out data first began, whether this method has an actual name, where it may have of originated from and what sort of fields you need to read up on concerning page layout/placing data appropriately on the page.
