Support » Plugin: Simply Static » Nope…

  • Maybe works for small sites. Churned for a long time working on 14,000 items on my site, then delivered a cryptic error message and Game Over.

    It’s because of over-promising and under-delivering plug-ins like this that I’m eager to get off WordPress.

    This plugin hasn’t been in development for some time. Try an alternative like WP2Static: https://wordpress.org/plugins/static-html-output-plugin/

    Quite an expectation you have from a free plugin on a free CMS for a site with 14,000 items. There are agencies who specialize in converting WP to HTML. Perhaps you can hire their services to get off WordPress and be on your happy way.

    The blog has 1,200 entries and 2,200 images. Where this plugin found 14,000 items I have no idea. But if there’s some reason for a workable size limit, would be nice if they stated that. To me it’s like saying we can make a 32-page book for you, but not a 320-page book…or we can count to 512 but not 1,024.

    WP2Static is a fine plugin, no doubt, for developers. I also tried a couple dozen different ways over many hours to get it to work, and even with feedback from the developers, and it simply didn’t do what it seemed to claim.

    I am not eager to spend money, but it might be the best way to neatly preserve eight years’ worth of material.
