Headless Wordress

Headless WordPress

Build richer digital experiences across channels without sacrificing freedom and content creator efficiency. Rather than locking organizations into a single architectural choice, WordPress VIP provides a fully decoupled CMS capability to give technical teams complete flexibility.

Single Stack

Use WordPress’ extensive library of off-the-shelf themes or build your own to develop great experiences in no time.


Build your own front-end for custom digital experiences while leveraging WordPress as your content hub.


Combine the strength of both, for example using WordPress themes for the web and APIs to power your mobile apps.

“The choice of decoupled WordPress plus GraphQL and React will allow us to build something unique and amazing… Making the decision to move forward with decoupled WordPress, and with WordPress VIP, was really a very smart decision.”

David Hostetter, Digital Chief Technology Officer, Al Jazeera
