It’s no secret that I’ve switched CMS’s so many times that it makes my head and my reader’s heads spin. Take a look at my CMS tag and you’ll see my struggles with Wordpress, Expression Engine, Text Pattern, and Blot.
I made a big migration to Jekyll and loved the static type of CMS’s ever since. Fast forward to today and I’ve pretty much settled on Pelican. Why? It’s a static CMS and its python powered.
I struggled for days on how to correctly enable Twitter Cards and Open Graph (aka Facebook) in my Blot.IM templates! Days!
The problem is now solved and I will share it here with fellow Blotsters. I have to give a big shouout to David from Blot, I couldn’t have solved it without his help!
Why Twitter Cards and Open Graph? Let’s be honest here, not many people create a blog or some sort of content just for it to sit hidden on the Internet.
Long time readers know that I’ve wrestled with different CMS engines on this site. I started with Wordpress, then switched to Expression Engine, and then back to Wordpress.
Along the way I tried Text Pattern and even Posterous. Expression Engine and Text Pattern are just plain terrible and I wouldn’t recommend them. Wordpress is a great entry level CMS and it’s great for non-technical people. In minutes you can have yourdomain.
