I’m quite confident in saying that most everyone here who uses Buy Me A Coffee administers some sort of website or blog, where they share their content. My question to you is, what is your favorite platform for serving web content?
I’ve used many over the years; like WordPress, Joomla, MediaWiki, and Flatpress. I’ve also used the blogging services of Google (Blogger), LiveJournal, and Vivaldi. But my favorite over the years, and the one I use now for my retro computing blog, https://www.my64.in.nf, is DokuWiki.
What makes it so appealing to me is in it’s simplicity. It doesn’t require much, on the server side, to run. it’s easy to back everything up, because all the information is stored in standard .txt files.
It’s also very fast and responsive; it’s very easy for web browsers to construct the web pages. I’ve noticed that, although very pretty and elaborate, many times a website using WordPress can become very slow because of all of the fancy rendering effects people use. I find that it can get frustrating visiting websites that are too elaborate.
I also like DokuWiki’s interface. It’s simple, clean and logical. It’s text editor may require you to learn a little bit on how to properly code your posts, but it isn’t very difficult to understand and doesn’t get in your way.
Anyway, those are my thoughts on the subject (if anyone really cares). How about you? Do you have a preferred web platform?
