WordPress, CMS or poor quality template

Before starting a website customers study and choose what CMS to build it on. Some move by simply listening to opinions, some are guided by price, some trust developers' recommendations. As a result, most customers use the resource inappropriately and soon notice the negative impact of "free" products.

On this point, there are always controversies

  1. Should the websites be built from scratch, or rolling out on ready templates like WordPress?
  2. Is WordPress a CMS or a low-quality template?
  3. Is it possible to choose the right ready-made CMS template and save money?
  4. What are the disadvantages of ready-made free templates?
