Content Management System (CMS) refers to a software application used to create digital content. Here, we will be specifically talking about the WordPress CMS.
There are a number of reasons organizations, at least initially, find the traditional WordPress an attractive option. To mention a few, WordPress installation is often very easy, and inexpensive WordPress hosting is easy to find.
WordPress as a Headless CMS
The WordPress REST API makes it possible to create interactive applications for web, mobile, or existing platforms using the same content. This is how WordPress is used as a headless content management system (CMS).
One of the benefits of a headless cms is it enables organizations to nify content into a single content hub. They also enable collaborative workflows. Doing this allows content editors and developers to work in parallel.
A headless cms is not a decoupled cms. The difference is a headless cms does not include a presentation layer at all, while for a decoupled cms, the presentation layer is optional.
