Hi to everybody,

I must admit I'm a bit surprised by the direction this discussion seems to
be going: are static sites the new trend of the day?

I didn't answer to previous Gilles's request about upgrading Digikam
website, as I thought Drupal was a requirement. As it is, after having
studied it for some time, I gave up trying to use Drupal a couple of years
ago: it is a very particular CMS, requires some serious apprenticeship (for
web creators at least) and is notoriously backward not compatible.

But I've been using other CMS for years, developed websites for both (non
techy) customers and myself. Several years ago, I switched entirely to
WordPress and have been very happy with it ever since. I know enough of WP
itself, PHP, jQuery and such to have developed all my sites themes, and use
ready-made plugins only sparingly, From my point of view, WP brings
versatility and flexibility I'm not sure a static site can provide. It is
also very user-friendly and its community size speaks wonders.

I might be mistaken, but I don't understand how a static site could be so
easy to maintain, when you'll probably have quite a number of editors that
need to publish different kind of information quite frequently.

My own two cents,
