In this case the situation was the end of life of Openshift v2, the platform I used to host (for free) the WordPress blog. As I was not yet accepted in the program of Openshift v3 I decided to try an alternative. So I had access to a static hosting and I moved all the content from Wordpress to Jekyll. Jekyll is a static site generator and as I described in a previous post there is nothing bad with that if you use the correct tools.
Wordpress is system with a rich ecosystem of plugins. There is a plugin for anything you can imagine, some of them have a cost but most of them are free. Here is my personal list of plugins I used in the last blogs I’ve built with Wordpress. All of them are FREE and some of theme have a paid version but are fully functional in the free version.
