Once again, I waded into WordPress hell, this time to post a webcomic on my site. All the advice says WordPress is the best way to do this.
The advice is wrong.
I’ll spare you the details, because you’ve probably been there: installing and uninstalling countless plug-ins and themes, none of which quite look or work right, fighting with widget, menu, and appearance settings until you find yourself staring at PHP code, tempted to wander in like a blind surgeon with a hacksaw.
But there’s a point where just because something should work doesn’t mean it will, or that a “sunk-cost” time investment is ever going to pay off.
Sure, Sparkle can’t automatically generate blog pages for me, but still it was so much faster to just import one of my existing pages (amazing feature), copy-paste the subsequent pages, and manually create “Next” and “Previous” links. In an hour, I’d eliminated all my frustrations and produced the site that I wanted from the start.
I am so grateful for this program that I’m switching to a monthly subscription.
