Ok, decided to investigate options for creating web sites and blogs today. My basic requirements are as follows:
- Static pages for creating content in a structured fashion. Ideally using some form of menu structure. My preference is for such a menu to be an collapsable menu on the left hand column, similar to many recent desktop and mobile applications. Failing that the usually menu bar across the top – this is kind of limited and uses up valuable screen real estate.
- Blogs for posting daily musings… Any substantial content, such as reviews, guides, tutorials, examples etc. should be posted using static pages under the structured menu’s. The Blog can just contain a link to the static page.
- Upload and link to content such as images, video’s and documents
- Link to other web sites
- Allow/disallow feedback and comments on a per page basis.
For now we are trying out WordPress.com (free version)…
