A sample text widget

Etiam pulvinar consectetur dolor sed malesuada. Ut convallis euismod dolor nec pretium. Nunc ut tristique massa.

Nam sodales mi vitae dolor ullamcorper et vulputate enim accumsan. Morbi orci magna, tincidunt vitae molestie nec, molestie at mi. Nulla nulla lorem, suscipit in posuere in, interdum non magna.

WordPress

My work mainly involves putting together dynamic (database driven) websites, based around code which I have been developing. When it came to blogging, I decided to go down the Blogger route initially rather than adapting my own software, just because it was there and didn’t involve me in any work.

However, I decided it was now time to move on to something better. I looked at the various packages available and reassesed the work involved in adapting my own software and I decided that WordPress is hard to beat. It’s simplicity itself to set up, it’s easy to get at the code and hack it, there are bags of plug-ins which are a doddle to install and I’m not reliant on Blogger. I even managed to import everything from Blogger and from my own comments system in no time at all.

I know it doesn’t look much different but that’s the next step. And I may even write something in it occassionaly.

  • WordPress is, to use the venacular, the dogs b*ll*cks. Well I think so anyway.

  • The only thing which I think it lacks (comparing features to my own content management system) is the ability to add images as part of a post. I know you can upload images and add tags in the post, but it is much easier when images are treated as a distinct element of the post.

    Maybe there’s a great plug-in which I haven’t discovered yet 🙂
