The future of WordPress

I agree with Marko that WordPress has a remarkable community, but I would add one more thing that WordPress should do—a simplified version for blogging. Do something like Medium or Svbtle that doesn’t have the complicated backend and code. That’s what I want.

    Have you tried Ghost? Just a blog and simple page manager. No intent to become a fully-powered CMS. Just publishing.

      And requires Node.js on the server, which is going to be a sticking point for a lot of people. Like me.

        What’s your issue w/ Node?

          It doesn’t come on my server and I can’t install it.

            Ah, gotcha. Makes sense.

        Doesn’t run on my main server either. That’s why I set up a $5/month Digital Ocean server.

          D.O. FTW! Love their service, especially the pricing.

    I don’t remember the exact quote, but it was something like this: If we took Word 5.1 and added just the one thing that everyone wanted, we’d end up with Office 6.

    +1. WordPress is the epitome of spaghetti code.

      You make it sound like they used only one type of pasta in WordPress. :)
