Website: This or That?
 
I was bored, so I created a website... even though I have one using wordpress...

the one I made: link

and wordpress: link


pros of self made;
- I can somewhat implement anything I like from wordpress

cons of self made;
- it's so much damn work, and it always will be... wordpress simplifies a lot.


...........................

I could just go crazy and make 1000 versions of my site... LOL, might get some random traffic from that!

You said it yourself.

Without a CMS, updates will take forever.

Personally I always use a CMS. With wordpress you can custom code a site to look however you want and still have the easy updates at hand.

Plus WP sites rank much better in search engines by default ;)

Why gray or black background? Lawn care = GREEN

CHEESE2009 03-13-2012 05:38 PM

I ended up going with my own creation. (HTML5)

Wordpress, as great as the perks are, just isn't as easy to use as it should be.

They offer a lot, but at the same time it's as though everything they offer is in different code which resorts to the site having errors like crazy!


GOOD NEWS,

I do notice a massive speed increase, the site loads instantly for me on all browsers.

The lawns right now are basically brown. LOL...

No no.. I find the color of the background to be appealing in a formal-luxurious sense.

A grassy theme is too much commitment for me, and my logo wouldn't like its colors repeated. :p

You should design your own HTML editor
You could call it Web Cheese 1.01

Why are you coding in wordpress? There are many "customizible" themes out there.

for instance; http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/weaver

You can literally make any type of design/layout you want with this theme. I use it as a base template and have created literally hundreds of websites for clients. You don't need to do a drop of coding. It has a built in editor.
