WP as CMS: A Case Study
What do you do when you want to move a well-trafficked site of ~3000 flat files to some sort of CMS? Well, after auditioning a number of large CMS solutions (and their support communities) I decided to try WordPress.
After weeks of work (as in 8-hour-a-day work) on structure, layout, and finally subsystems to do things like display article titles in a sidebar, I relaunched Strikethree.com late last night:
There are some nagging issues to fix (WP-ContactForm seems to want to dwell far down at the bottom of the contact page, the left-side items are a couple of pixels off in Win IE, my old flat-file pages seem to break the CSS somehow, and the stylesheet needs pruning badly) but for the most part, it’s been satisfying to see it go so well.
Congrats to the WP development team and everyone here who’s answered my stupid questions. I know there’ll be more. 😉
