A year back, I created a nice and simple website for my triathlon club: http://d3triathlon.com. I’m used to WordPress, and I know it has an easy interface to create content. So it’s what I chose to create the site: simple stuff, simple theme with a couple of simple pages.
At the time, I requested feedback and inputs from club members about features they wanted to see. I implemented most of them (safely ignoring the “I want to see a little guy, swim bike and run across the screen” request…) to produce what I feel is a decent job for what it’s supposed to do. A year later, after only one member dared trying to create a new article (successfully though!), I got an email asking me what I thought about using another platform, on which editing “looks just like word”… Here’s some thoughts.
