WordPress, is it the best a Man can get?

Careful! This post is looking a little old and could be inaccurate in many, many ways

In the space of a couple of days I seem to have gone from being troubled by WordPress not allowing me full control over my website to wishing I’d never got involved with it.

As i’ve previously mentioned this site has been pushed live in a incomplete state because I was met with a brick wall in the compatibility of what wordpress seemed capable of allowing me to do and what I in fact wished to do. The issue does not even seem that large a problem, all I want is to create pages outside of the wordpress CMS and be able to control them how I wish, not have wordpress create problems with dynamic content or even using it’s rewrite rules to ignore the page.

I’m sure there is a perfectly simple solution to all this but I have yet to find one without compromising the ideas I had for the site. All this has also caused a cascade effect of issues with hosting and as such the possibility of a domain name change. I have thought about dumping WordPress altogether, however I have issues with the alternatives such as Drupal and I’m not sure if I really want to get into learning Moveable Type without knowing for sure it can solve my problems.

This has kinda left me in the position of coding the site and blog all myself. This then means I have to either recode the plugins I use or dump them altogether. At the moment I am greatly undecided as to what to do, hopefully I can come across a solution that will work for me and in the mean time I can maybe improve the design I have……again!
