CMS Search Update: The Shortlist Problem

2023-11-29

Note: This was initially published on Scribbles, my previous “micro blog”. I discontinued it and moved the contents into this blog on 2023-12-05. I just published the shortlist of my search for a new CMS for my photography website. There are five systems (in no particular order) that are on it: Kirby, WordPress, TYPO3, Contao, and Statmic (if you’re curious about how I got there, you can read my other articles on that topic).

CMS Search Update: The Shortlist

2023-11-29

Note: This was initially published on Scribbles, my previous “micro blog”. I discontinued it and moved the contents into this blog on 2023-12-05. I just published the requirements for the CMS that should manage my photography website in the future. As announced over there that I already analysed the CMS on the longlist but I wanted to split all the information into two posts to avoid making one too long. Well….

CMS Search Update: The Requirements

2023-11-29

Note: This was initially published on Scribbles, my previous “micro blog”. I discontinued it and moved the contents into this blog on 2023-12-05. Back when I started searching for a content management system for my photography website a few weeks ago I first wrote a list of requirements that should be fulfilled.

Using four deal breakers as basic criteria I culled through a total of 40 relevant finds and created a longlist including 18 different systems.

A few days ago I wrote that I’m currently search for a different content management solution for my photography website.

Searching for a CMS

2023-10-09

Note: This was initially published on Scribbles, my previous “micro blog”. I discontinued it and moved the contents into this blog on 2023-12-05. Currently, my photography website is generated using WordPress. Back in March when I created it I needed something to finish the first version as soon as possible (I created some business cards for a trip and wanted to put a URL there). WordPress was the best and first solution that came to mind.

Switching my Website to Hugo using ox-hugo

2020-05-15

To be honest: my website was always more or less just a large playground for me. It started around 2013 when I created my second website (I had a website before, ~2006/2008, I don’t know correctly). Back then I put very much time in designing the thing. In 2014 I taught myself to code and in early 2015 I even wrote a PHP blogging engine called Rangitaki (i have archived it some time ago).
