Drinking the Kool-Aid®

I suppose it had to happen. I’ve been tootling a while here with a WordPress blog for a while, so it was perhaps only a matter of time before I took a bit more notice of the software that was enabling this. I discovered that it’s an open source framework that’s expanded to form a mid-strength (my interpretation) web content management solution. Not only that but the hoster I chose a while back for my other sites provides all of the right tools to run up an instance in a trice. I even have a NAS that can install it too, so I started there with a local version, discovered it was quite easy to use, and within a week I’d converted one of my sites entirely to WordPress. It is of course very different to the old version of the site – converted is probably not the the right word. I copied some of the old data into the new framework, tried a few templates, found one I like and there we go.

So, for the record I’m using the Radix theme which allows me free rein to use the Bootstrap framework I’ve been happy with elsewhere, and the site is very much a testing ground before I attempt to take on a proper job with the amateur orchestras site. Next step for that site is to try some form of database, but I may need a day or two 🙂

Oh, and is there a blog on the personal site too? Well, sort of. It’s called “Latest Bit Of Kit” and it’s where I add small snippets about gizmos and doo-dads I’ve bought and tried. You can find it here.
