Has anyone used Wordpress to build out a website? Your thoughts on using it as a content management tool?

Search is your friend... (Wordpress)
Wordpress is highly recommended as a "light" CMS. Many people here are huge fans of Wordpress.
Joomla: Postive or Negative Comments?
Is Content Management System needed for a blog-type of website
Advantages of WordPress over Blogger?
I haven't used it myself (yet), but I do have a site that I plan on building with it in the future.

Wordpress is an extremely powerful tool when you know how to harness the power of that code.
I've been to websites that I had no idea were Wordpress templates modd'ed to the max.
So doing a bit of searching here and via SEs will show you what can really be done with this "blog" based framework.
Good luck to you and post back if/when you have created a site with WP

Wordpress rocks. It is not just blog software. It can be used to build out and manage a site beautifully. And there are LOTS of plugins available for free. It requires minimal skill to set up on your own server and its usefulness and ability to look however you want it to look are limited only to your creativity and ability to manipulate the templates.

Thanks for the responses. We are building a fairly large site with lots of content management required. We have used Expression Engine for other sites but thought we'd give Wordpress a shot. So far it looks like it has all we need. But its definitely designed as blog software and we are building a content rich site.
Hope it works!

I've used Joomla, Blogger and most recently Word Press.
Word Press is much more than a blogging system, and can be used to manage large amounts of content. I set it up on my web server through an auto installation program and had my new site set up in less than an hour.
I think it's easier to use than Joomla, and much more powerful than blogger.
Lots of plugins available to do just about any functionality you need.

Wordpress can handle the big content. NYTimes and Washington Post use it for their blogs.Jason Rosenbaum

Ditto. WordPress runs on MySQL. It can handle a pretty large site. I've seen several 20,000+ page blogs that run just fine.
Search engines seem to love the WordPress structure.There's good, fast and cheap. Pick any two.
