That's enough. You have the gaul to call me rude. How dare you. You've been snarky, codensending and overly rude. Even when I try to explain something you continue to attack me. WTH is wrong with you? Quite frankly, I don't give a shit how Wordpress is structured. YOU are the face of Wordpress to me. And, it isn't a good face. If responding kindly has gotten too hard or frustrating to you, you probably should stop volunteering or waving that around like a martyrs flag. Because, again, I don't care. I only care about what works. For me. BTW, stop being so precious. Even the coders at a site like Squarespace joke about being a website in a box. They probably aren't as burnt out as you are. I'm done with you. But, not this conversation. Please do not respond. And, take a few weeks off. Especially if you aren't getting paid for your work.

I do not work for WordPress or Automattic, the company that owns and manages, a web hosting company. Just because you pay for hosting and premium services, you are NOT paying for the 15 years of volunteer time, energy, and development that went into the Open Source web publishing platform of WordPress, that incorporates into its hosting services. I understand it is confusing, but is a business separate from the non-profit and WordPress Foundation that supports the community volunteers and their efforts. WordPress is free. You are paying for features that overlay WordPress, and for support and hosting services, not WordPress directly. I've been a volunteer without compensation since 2003 for the WordPress Community. I do not have to answer your questions. I've been patient and gracious in responding to you, and this I do without requirement nor compensation. You have been rude, inconsiderate, and obstinate in response to my efforts to help you understand how this all works. We all have businesses. We all have to learn things that we don't want to learn in order to do those businesses and live our passions and generate the income that makes life comfortable, and allows us to volunteer for other projects that feed our passions, as does my volunteer work within the WordPress Community. What you call website-in-a-box takes great skill, expertise, programming, design, and development to "make it easy" for you to publish. They all deserve your respect as well. Again, good luck with your project, whatever you do. I hope you learned a little about what it takes to make WordPress and other open source projects. And I hope you show gratitude for the thousands of volunteers who gave freely of their expertise for the past 15 years to make WordPress easy, and free, to use.

Thank you. As far as without charge goes, you work for Wordpress. I pay Wordpress for the next level of service. You can do no less than answer my questions "for free." Please try to understand where I'm coming from, and, where I guess many of your users are coming from too. While Steve Jobs was not my big hero, he understood one thing very well. Most of us don't want to be coding experts or learn how to do work arounds and so on and on. We just want to do whatever it is we do without a lot of technical issues. That's it. For me, I want to show my new work to people. I want my clients to be able to see what I'm doing. I don't sell online. I work by commission. And, luckily, for pretty good money. Note the use of the word luckily. :) I don't want to write code. I don't want to learn, what for me, is a whole other kind of work. For sure, Wordpress is a solid platform. I've looked at your VIP list. And, it doesn't surprise me. But, many of those companies have their own IT staffs. Some focused on just Wordpress code, which is different than many other systems. I'm just one guy, except when I need assignment support. Even if I were young enough (I'm an old guy) to want to learn the coding it takes to make Wordpress really fly, it would take so much time away from my work that it would probably be counter productive. I agree, moving to what I call a website in a box, isn't a great option. But, I can do that. I don't have to ask 6,897,905 questions just to change the size of a photograph, or make a different headline... I hope you understand.

Im sorry you took my comment as snarky. It is often a challenge to type without emotional indicationers as that was not my intension. We are very privileged to live in a world where answers to all our questions are readily available, including my ability to answer your questions without charge. Good luck with your project.

I’m not moving Wordpress to Wordpress. You’re snarky and rude comment about Google says anything that anybody needs to know. About you. For that you owe me an apology. Besides, CMS, depending on industry means quite a few different things. As far as websites go, most social networks — especially Instagram — have eliminated the need for websites, unless you sell stuff directly. But, you know that.

Thank you for your comments and determination to understand how all this works. Luckily, we have access today to services like Google to look up common terms unfamiliar to you in this industry. A content management system or CMS is anything that allows you to publish on the web. Facebook is a form of CMS. The program phpMyAdmin is NOT required for WordPress. This is not the post to answer your question, however depending upon how you move your site, followers and subscribers are automatically included from WordPress installation to another WordPress installation. If you are switching to another CMS, check with them, about what data is imported. I do hope you get help with this as I'm sure your website is critical to you and your success. Messing around with it like you suggest may cause disruptions to your business and cost you more to fix.

If Wordpress is the face, than it has everything to do with Wordpress. Kicking the can doing the road doesn't work. And, there you go again. "Contention Management System." WTH is that? Speak English to those of us who really don't want to sit inside all day at a screen. Given your comments, my project's scope has changed somewhat... maybe you can be helpful with this. How do I move everyone who has followed my here to my new Website and blog?

This issue has nothing to do with WordPress. It is a security issue with a popular but optional administrative tool for the database used by many if not most contention management systems. Again, contact your hosting company to ensure they have updated everything. Nothing complicated about that. Part of the process. Good luck with your project.
