Ingenious Bear get asked How Old is WordPress? How much experience do you have? We have used WordPress for over a decade and with the likes of Shopify, Wix and a host of new ‘Build it yourself‘ platforms the team needed to up WordPress’s game.

WordPress was developed in 2003 by developers Matt Mullenweg & Mike Little but it isn’t until recent years WordPress has become the best.

Over the early years, maybe pre 2010, the popular open source platform was very vulnerable to attacks in the form of MySQL injection which gave hackers access over the control panel so many Developers stayed clear of using it.
