Bitter Grounds - espresso fueled ramblings

Saturday, April 29, 2017

Holy Moly I'm back. Like the new site? You better, it took me long enough to set it up.
I used Word Press for years and finally gave up on it about 2 years ago. The layoff started off innocently enough, I took the site down to try and pound WP into behaving in a way I wanted.  WP is fine, don't get me wrong, but it's just so unwieldy in the design. I tried to create my own templates, pushed and shoved the designs around and just gave up. I had been building up a new site from scratch (and teaching myself to php and SQL) but it was slow going. Then... then I stumbled on Joomla ...
.. ok, it didn't so much stumble across it as was told about it by a designer. Ah... yes... it has all the features I wanted, plus more. I installed the Gantry framework and have spent 2 weeks playing. Oh the fun you can have with new templates. Anyway... I'm back.
