Dreamhost Wordpress vs. Wordpress.org
2 projects | /r/Wordpress | 6 Jun 2023
However, I tried to use this same login information to log into wordpress.org, to which they are saying my username does not exist. Why is this the case?2 projects | /r/Wordpress | 6 Jun 2023
Thank you! So I've hard another option is to install wordpress locally on my computer and set it all up instead of using the one-click install function - I'm guessing this would also not use wordpress.org, and I would still set up specific user accounts for my website?
Beginner here...I can edit barely anything on Wordpress.com

Self-hosted WordPress (wordpress.org) has pretty much no limitations, but you would have to be willing to learn something and devote some time. For me, it is interesting and not difficult, but not everyone must share such interests.2 projects | /r/Wordpress | 4 Jun 2023
You need to buy a hosting plan somewhere else to use wordpress.org. Most of the hosting companies have 1-click WordPress installers nowadays. I assume you already have it?
When did the WordPress.org support forums decide to chase people away from WordPress?
2 projects | /r/Wordpress | 28 May 2023
and the prick that ran the wordpress.org forums BITCHED UP A STORM. I think that the exact wording was that I offered to help the guy, and the first 90 minutes were free.2 projects | /r/Wordpress | 28 May 2023
any pro plugin should be supported via the developer and not wordpress.org forums. It's always being like that.
WordPress vs Laravel: Which Platform Offers Better SEO Capabilities

WordPress is a popular content management system (CMS) that powers over 40% of all websites on the internet. It is an open-source platform, which means that anyone can use it and modify it.

You essentially need to delete all your files (except /wp-content/uploads and your DB) and install everything fresh from the source e.g. download wordpress from wordpress.org, and download your theme and plugins from their sources. Do not use backups or nulled software.
I f*ckd up
2 projects | /r/Wordpress | 19 May 2023
I wouldn't necessarily say that. People who don't have a background in building and managing web sites are not going to start off with all the technical knowledge they would need to manage a WordPress website themselves. So: if you already know enough about Linux system administration to set up a web server, then by all means do it your self with software from wordpress.org. Otherwise, the wordpress.com service is a reasonable option for beginners.
What is your tech stack for blog websites? (not wordpress)

I like 11tu and GitHub pages. https://www.11ty.dev/18 projects | /r/webdev | 7 Jun 2023
The only time I have any need for a project like this in recent years is for hobby projects, but I've been quite fond of the static site generator approach, especially using Eleventy ( https://www.11ty.dev/ ), hosted any-old-where, though Netlify certainly makes it very easy.
Some Blogging Myths
4 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 5 Jun 2023
If your barrier of entry is setting something up, I'd definitely go with wordpress as it makes it quite seamless when writing new posts.
As for me I use 11ty  for my blog . I quite like 11ty as I just write markdown files and it gets converted to static content. I'm also testing the grounds on using it for an online magazine, basically want to do some css garden tricks for different types of content. Seems to work quite well for this as I want as little JS being sent as possible.
Engineers who have a personal website/blog, what are you using to host/generate it?
8 projects | /r/ExperiencedDevs | 1 May 2023
I use 11ty (a static site generator) to generate it. The template source is nunjucks and the blog content is markdown. Everything is stored in a public GitHub repo and built and deployed on Netlify on push to `main`.
is there a way to write the small stuff like navbar, etc.. only one time?
2 projects | /r/webdev | 19 Apr 2023
It is great that you are asking this. Repeating code like that is absolutely horrible and you are right to seek a solution. Static site generators like Hugo or 11ty are pretty common solutions for this. If you are willing to get into frontend frameworks that client-side routing is arguably an even better solution to this but will involve a lot of new concepts to I'd go with a static site generator for now

How to make a site like this?
2 projects | /r/DigitalGardens | 6 Apr 2023
In terms of how to make a site like this... it is a simple site built with the static site generator Eleventy which can be used to take in something like Markdown files and turn them into HTML pages. But in order to style them and build them you'll want to understand HTML and CSS as well as how to use the generator features and hosting. There are other generators like Jekyll which can be hosted on something like Github Pages.

As part of my commitment to writing about things I've written in other frameworks in Eleventy, this is how I re-engineered my /now page in Eleventy.1
Should I upgrade to Eleventy 2.0?
