But before I continue and without wasting your time let’s take a quick look at:-
WORDPRESS INTRODUCTION AND ITS ORIGIN:-
«««What is WordPress?»»»
WordPress is a free and open source blogging tool and a content management system (CMS) based on PHP and MySQL, which runs on a web hosting service.
Features include a plugin architecture and a template system. WordPress is used by more than 22.0% of the top 10 million websites as of August 2013.
WordPress is the most popular blogging system in use on the Web, at more than 60 million websites.
«««How WordPress Started»»»
Before wordpress, there was a PHP based blogging platform known as b2 which was developed in 2001 by Micheal Valdrighi and the software slowly gained its popularity among geek types as the way of publishing content on the net. This software was active until early 2003 when users of the software noticed that Valdrighi seemed to have disappeared and they become a little bit concern about b2’s future this drives one of the b2 user, a Texas young man who made it his favorite software to publish his own content on the world wide web (www).
The young man was so passionate and concern about b2 that he did not want to see his favorite publishing tools goes to waste or to face tough decision about moving unto something new and unknown.
In a statement on his post this is what he said (This site is beginning to grow and grow, and forward compatibility has lately been in my mind more. Several days ago this site passed twenty thousand unique visitors, and more than seventy thousand hits, since late August. I recently converted everything (except the photolog) to XHTML 1.1, which was nice, but it’s not the markup I’m worried about. My logging software hasn’t been updated for months, and the main developer has disappeared, and I can only hope that he’s okay.
What to do? Well, Textpattern looks like everything I could ever want, but it doesn’t look like it’s going to be licensed under something politically I could agree with. Fortunately, b2/cafelog is GPL, which means that I could use the existing codebase to create a fork, integrating all the cool stuff that Michel would be working on right now if only he was around. The work would never be lost, as if I fell of the face of the planet a year from now, whatever code I made would be free to the world, and if someone else wanted to pick it up they could. I’ve decided that this the course of action I’d like to go in, now all I need is a name. What should it do? Well, it would be nice to have the flexibility of MovableType, the parsing of TextPattern, the hackability of b2, and the ease of setup of Blogger. Someday, right?)

You will see in that post, he talked briefly of some other software that was available at that time, and he talked about the idea of using the b2 to “create a folk and integrating all the cool stuff that Michel, the owner of b2 would be working with right now if only he was around”
He definitely create a folk in the absence of b2 developer, and from the original b2 code based, he developed a brand-new blogging software application called WordPress.
The young man name is Matt Mullenweg. He’s the Co-founder of WordPress.
It was on December 26 2003 that Matt with assistance of other few developers announced the arrival of WordPress software. The rest is history as they say. The history of this particular piece of software is surely the one for the books and it is the most popular blogging platform available today.
In March 2005 Matt proclaimed that the numbers of WordPress downloads had reached 900.000 which was and still the amazing land-mark in the history of the software. But the real excitement occurred in April 2006, when wordpress logged more than 1 million downloads, and in 2007, when the software had more than 3 million downloads and now current download of WordPress 3.9 is
