    Does Wordpress require heavy coding or are their support forums very useful for those kinds of things?

    You guys are all saying WordPress is "easy to learn" when the majority of you haven't touched anything outside of pre-built themes and installing plugins.

    If you're just using the CMS end of it, then I would consider any CMS based software to be "easy to learn". But there are a number of factors to be considered in whether or not a certain type of software or framework is "difficult".
