Voxera57559dIf its really a blog I se no problem with wordpress.
It was designed as a blog.
Its when its used as a generic cms and the theme rewrites mostly everything you get problems.
Many wordpress sites use multiple plugins that not always play nice which can cause performance and stability problems.
If your main use of the site depends more on plugins than on vanilla wordpress, start to look at alternatives.
If you could go with a vanilla wordpress and use plugins just for look and feel or edge functionality wordpress is probably as good as any.
dejaime3489dThe problem with Wordpress is trying to use it for everything. It is very good for blogging.
Also heard good things about Ghost from an overexcited coworker.
I personally use Jekyll though.
joas15269dNot really for blogging, but for websites in general: I've used Craft CMS for couble of projects, but not sure if mobile support has improved. It's feature locked though, but good for one person and single language.
Currently looking to use PageKit and / or making partitially custom solution on top of Symfony.
Jilano160059dConsidering how simple it is (that's a good thing!), I would suggest something like a flat file CMS (or simple in general):
- Hugo (https://gohugo.io/)
- Grav (https://getgrav.org/)
- October (https://octobercms.com/)
- Pagekit (https://pagekit.com/)
- Neos (https://www.neos.io/)
- Wagtail (https://wagtail.io/)
620hun84359dI disagree, WP sucks even for blogging. I know, because I tried. I got so angry about how terrible and buggy it was that I’m planning to roll my own solution.
gronostaj879dWordpress sucks, but it fits your requirements.
I recommend October CMS.
sebson359dIf you like to code look into a static site generator like Jekyll or eleventh and use netlifycms and host for free on netlify
dejaime3489d@calmyourtities Yes. And there are several themes for it. You can also tweak how the static generator works, to do whatever specifics you need it to do.
I made my own theme so every page had a table of contents, and some other random tweaks. It is really flexible.
Oh, and I have it hosted on a Raspberry Pi.
