So the astute among you will notice that this site is now running on WordPress.
There are a few reasons for this:
- I was using WP more and more in personal projects and was finding it hard to support plugins on two platforms.
- e107 hasn’t seen any new functionality for ages, and to be honest I don’t really need a full blown CMS
- The e107 site on this domain was caught in a hacking attempt. I was considering a move to WP anyway and this seemed like a good opportunity.
- I never got much response or interaction from the e107 community- it sometimes feels like no one is that interested.
But a big thanks to everyone who has helped me from the e107 community and I hope my plugins were useful to some of you!
Thanks to Roofdog for letting me use some of his themes over the last year – perhaps I’ll get to use some of your WP work in the future.
So what about my e107 plugins?
In all honesty I can’t see myself doing a lot to progress any of these when e107 0.8 is released. I will try to port them over though and as long as I’m running even one site on e107 (which I am!) I will continue to be involved.
So I’m not out of the scene totally, and I look forward to testing e107 0.8 when it is released. Who knows – I might even end up converting back!
I will be posting up some info on my e107 -> WordPress migration shortly, both here and on another project. I’ll also be introducing my new WP plugin which I hope will kick start my change of direction
