WordPress - an experiment in CMS

I sit here, tearing out my hair with WordPress! Not that it’s too dificult to manage or learn, but the fact that I ALWAYS hand code everything I’ve written for the web; every website, every webpage, every everything!

WordPress does give access to it’s templates in full, so accessing it’s CSS/(X)HTML/PHP is downright easy. BUT, and I do mean but, I still prefer old fashion hand coding from scratch.

From my personal copy of Adobe Homesite 5.5 (or +, depending on whom you ask.) I create my new documents from HTML or XHTML - all from hand. I know some of you web geeks are feelin’ me right now! So my venture into the world of WordPress CMS is an experiment. Wish me well!
