WordPress is an incredible GPL success story and it’s had a huge positive impact on my life.
But good lord it’s a frustrating and tedious experience trying to write in it now. 😬
@freedcreative it's why I moved to a static site generator, because all the fiddliness and updates... just no. Writing in Org Mode and publishing by Git? Yes please!
@ljwrites For real. I’m doing the same on my own projects. (The WP stuff is for a client.) Using Ghost as a headless CMS and building out a front end with 11ty. Can’t wait to finish it and get it online!
@freedcreative that sounds awesome! It's sad that we often don't have the same choice in tools for paid work as we have with our own. Feeling that with word processors lol.
@tagomago There is, but the site isn’t mine so I can’t really tinker around with plugins and settings unfortunately.
I do alleviate part of the friction by writing the draft elsewhere, then pasting it in. But I still have to finish it off in the regular editor and deal with its quirks and auto-saving bugs.
