So I’ve been trying out WordPress, but having lots of problems. Here are the two most recent:
- Not being able to insert the text “convert (from” — even with other characters in the middle — without getting a 403 error. Not being able to insert images without getting a 403 error. I had to create a .htaccess file in my wp-admin directory. Support thread here.
- Not being able to insert special characters without them being converted into question marks on pressing Save. I had to convert the mySQL database to UTF-8, which was created as Latin encoding by default. This screwed up all my posts, but I made backups first. Support thread here.
This really isn’t working out the way I expected it to. Spending much more time maintaining WordPress itself than I would have spent maintaining a bunch of hand-written web pages.
