Why Wordpress

We believe in the power of community and we believe in open source. That’s why we built Semplice on Wordpress. More than 71 million people use Wordpress and they’re always pushing it to the future. All Wordpress plugins, extensions and functionalities are within reach, but you’ll never interact with the Wordpress interface. Our streamlined, drag and drop content editor is built on top of the Wordpress CMS and packed with unique, modern design features. Better yet, Semplice is completely self-hosted and you fully own the code and files.
