Now that I have some problems with MT (it’s so terribly slow when not using mod_perl), I thought to myself: “Let’s do a little experiment. Let’s try out WordPress and let’s see what happens”
So. Was it worth it? How is it, working with WP?
While I really like the dynamical generation feature and the OPML-Upload, I have some problems with WP:
- It’s not as flexible as MT. All those template-functions output much too much HTML (every little bit of HTML-code is too much, actually). I had to change the stylesheet to accomodate wordpresses forced <ul> in the sidebar. And for the links I actually had to patch around in WP for my template
- MT seems much more polished.
Anyway. As WP is written in PHP and contributions are certainly welcome (it’s free software after all), maybe I should look into contributing something.
And as for the future of gnegg.ch: I’ve not deceided yet, what I should do: Adopting the other gnegg.ch templates would take about half a day to one day, which is terribly much time to invest in replacing something that essentially works.
So, as I said here, I’m going to stay with what I currently have – for now. At least until I hear back from MT about my support ticket, as mod_perl is a requirement for me to be running MT.
