Good news

We are back.

After looking at numerous options, I decided to switch to WordPress for g5center. I’m not a huge fan of WordPress, but it’s workable for now.

The good:

  • WordPress is much faster on PHP 7.3
  • Using a bootstrap theme is relatively harmless
  • The new WordPress editing system (blocks) is kind of helpful
  • Security is maintained decently

The bad:

  • WordPress themes almost universally stink
  • The site isn’t as clean as I would like
  • I don’t like the shortened articles on the main blogpage
  • Categories and tags are probably overkill
  • We lost all those wonderful old comments

For now, most of the content has been transferred over. I did remove a few entries on the Hardware, System, Office, etc pages, because they didn’t have links or just felt extraneous at this point. I may add those back. I do have a backup of the old site, so I will continue to move any information over. All of the articles have been moved over, and everything is searchable. So, go wild.

Stay tuned. SimpleMarkPPC news incoming.

  1. I guess I will be the first to comment! I’ve been following this blog a lot recently after digging up my old PowerBook G4, and to my surprise, I’ve found it quite helpful. Thanks for all the good information!
