You must be one lucky developer lol
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
crisz83055yWhy 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.
@crisz lol or use a static site generator like Jekyll or Hugo
Whoa. It hurts me physically, can feel your pain in the arse
@mjones44 jekyll is what I would have used ❤️
smtlk455yCall 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
@paranoidAndroid I haven't actually used Jekyll but I've got a few Hugo projects for documentation and stuff
tomexx2595yNuxt generate and hook up some headless CMS later if needed
Your consultant probably didn't like the git idea because he doesn't know how to use it. :)
@HollowKitty oh no he knows git very well. He loves it in fact. But ut wss not his idea...
jak64520255yShit consultent XD
jak64520255yIf you really want study try grav for one page ... Else use html css only
Netlify : 🤔
GitHub Pages : 🤔
World demands shit today ya know
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"
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!
