Cachehit ?

I implement this because its unessary update static page when the sourcefile didnt change. Its also better for Google, because if the static file dont change, the filedate also keeps the same and google ranks files that didnt change for a long time better!

I only got webspace without PHP-support

Download the free Uniform Server that inlucdes a local on you PC runnig Webserver with installed WordPress. Install an configuarte Really-Static Plugin and
Disqus Comment Plugin.

If you want to posting a new blogentry, start the Uniform Server on your PC. Than login to the now local on you PC runnig WordPressinstallation and write your blogentry an puplish it. After this you can stop the uniform server. If someone getting on you internetwebsite he sees the static html files (generatet by really static) and he can post comments (because Disqus got there ownservers)

Reviews

Worked for my simple case

I have a very simple and very small blog. This plugin worked perfectly for making a static archive copy of it. I had to manually copy the theme because the plugin doesn’t seem to cover that. Otherwise, it worked well. It can be a bit confusing to use but eventually does what it promises.

Totally fucked up my site

Ruined my site!

Even i only tried the demo mode… it changed the wordpress site itself and i could not access any parts of my blog.

I managed to get my blog back to previous state by deactivate all plugins from ftp by renaming plugin to plugin_

Then by ftp also i copied all files from my previous blog to /wp-content/plugins/really-static/static/ then i could get into my wp-admin and the old deleted plugins was back plus the new ones was not there so i could safely delete it and go back to my previous site.

Hope you can get rid of it too good luck. And for everyone else stay away.
