Actually, WordPress does not suck; it's an amazing and liberating platform.
I operated http://crimeinamerica.net until it died due to the 2.9 upgrade. I submit that anything that dies merely due to an upgrade indicates feebleness in the technology.
It also indicates that criminologists (me) should stick to criminology and let the tech people do WordPress. If I'm going to do WordPress, it seems that I need a platfrom (paid Theme) and/or paid customer support.
I don't need someone telling me to code as a solution to my months of hard work dying due to a WordPress upgrade. I do not know how to code. I do not know php or CSS.
What I need is a reliable platform and someone to fix my problems when necessary.
Opinions-suggestions would be welcomed.
Thanks, Len Sipes.
