Updated on June 16, 2021

< 1 Min Read

Since its introduction in 2003, WordPress has been known for its thriving community. Every year, this community of developers, designers, and users create amazing features and greatly enhance the capabilities and functionalities of the CMS.

This huge volume of contribution is made possible because of motivators and influencers who are the central pillars of the WordPress community. These individuals educate and promote various aspects of the most popular CMS in the world today. Almost everybody in the WordPress community looks up to these influencers for motivation and appreciation for their contributions.

Top WordPress Influencers

Note: This is a simple curated list. This is not a ranked list and any particular position does not reflect any comment upon the skills, standing, and reputation of the influencer.


I hope I did justice to the awesome superstars of the WordPress community. Although the list is comprehensive, I must have missed out on some names. If you know any that should be included, then mention them in the comment box below.

A lot of these influencers contributed a great deal of their time towards the development of WordPress in 2016.

I wish a Happy New Year and great success in 2017 to the WordPress Community.
