Consultant: "you should deploy a website. Use wordpress and have a draft ready in a few days. It's easy."

Me: "It's a static website, a one-pager even. I think we would be better served with something light-weight without a database."

Consultant: "99% of the websites in the entire internet are powered by wordpress. It's state of the art, you should use it"

Me: 😢 "Nooo, it needs mainentance and stuff. Look, XY is much simpler. You can even version the static site with git"

Consultant: 😤

We ended up with wordpress for our static website now. I am so proud. I absolutely love wordpress. It is amazing. Now my static one-pager can have plugins, multiple users, security issues and all that. The future is now!

    Wordpress - state of the art, 99% of websites use it.

    And 1000 hilarious other jokes without any phisical proof.

    People please stop making up the data it is unprofessional and stupid.

    @Gregozor2121 That dude must have read a blog post with the title: Why Wordpress has taken over the internet

    Or any other stupid title like that

    Why you should even use something for a static 1 page website? Lol just modify a bootstrap theme and you finished in 30 minutes and without security issues

    @crisz I like the tidyness of static website generstors. Able to separate theme and content nicely, can add plugins for the '"compile" step etc.

    Call these people on their bullshit, ask him to explain why it’s better, and no plugins are not a good reason as nobody likes magic in their code, and good luck when someone remembers to add malicious code to your plugins.

    I really think the Wordpress people are ripe for a major malicious plugin that sets up global keyloggers

    Your consultant probably didn't like the git idea because he doesn't know how to use it. :)
