Honestly it’s like I’m addicted So, I’ve been through a few blogging formats at this point. Here’s my thoughts on all the one’s I’ve tried in short order. I’ll put links to ones I favour and you can google the other ones. Wordpress - easy, reliable, fat bloated security hole ridden garbage. The McDonalds of blogging platforms. Yeah you’re everywhere, but you’re scum and you know it. Loads of WYSIWIG editors and support all over though.
Before I go any further, let me just say HUGE fan of Cloudflare‘s free level of stuff. They‘re a great bunch of people. So I tried to come to this very blog to make a different post and what happened? I get redirected to some shitty t-shirt site. To clarify ‘ It was shitty in both website design and t-shirt design. ZOMFG I‘VE BEEN HACKED! Why am I such a tit and not offsite backing up my blog?
The ole locked out with keys inside so I made a Ghost blog on an App service on Azure and immediately forgot the password. Didn‘t store it in Lastpass. Nothing. Full on chimp mode. No worries I‘ll click to reset my password link. Easy. Oh yeah, I didn‘t hook it up to any email so it can‘t mail me a link. No problem, I did it in a hurry so it‘s probably one of these standard dev passwords I use for testing.
It‘s mostly for bragging rights Heya, so first off before we even get started, as simple as this is ‘ it‘s something you‘re probably not going to want to bother with unless you‘re interested in tech / IT stuff. Secondly, this is not actually supported in Azure without using the SendGrid or similar type relay as per the bottom of this post as perhttps://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/mast/2016/04/04/sending-e-mail-from-azure-compute-resource-to-external-domains/. Mines is working, others work but don‘t throw this up in mission critical production or anything.
Wot are you on about ? TBH this has been superceded by Lability which is much better. just google that. It’s much better than the trash I did If you‘re trying a lot of random stuff , you probably end up spinning up a lot of evaluation domains. 6 months is quite a long time but even so, remaking the whole thing is a total pain in the hoop. Sure you can use Azure, and should for some of it.
