I use Wordpress exclusively. It's so easy to use and modify with so many add 
ons I find it a no-brainer. A person here has learned almost everything she 
needs to know in 2 one hour sessions with me. She picks it up fast but the 
basic stuff is very easy. She's entering content in pages and widgets and 
moving things around in menus.

The more recent Wordpress themes have a plug-in called Styles. It's a third 
party add on that allows you to customize many many things. Colors, fonts and 
font sizes, etc. I use 2014 and 2012 mostly. 

I also use custom CSS (in Jetpack) that allows many more changes. Styles 
doesn't have a "bold" option, for example. I should do child themes but with 
custom CSS my styles don't get wiped out when the theme is upgraded.

The most I can do with PHP is change the messages that appear in various 
places. More than that and I crash the site. But changing the PHP is rarely 
necessary. Plug-ins do almost anything.

What I would really love is a group working on an add-on shopping cart program 
to build a meal manager program. And a calendar program.
