I continue to be impressed by the growth of #WordPress as an #opensource "publishing layer". It now powers 39.5% of top 10 million websites and, perhaps more interestingly, is now used by more sites than those that do NOT use a content management system (CMS).
I wrote about this status at:
@danyork wow, very impressive indeed!
I help maintain the WordPress site for a not-for-profit and I must admit it's very easy to use.
What I miss compared to static site generators is the full version-control: I hesitate to give people write access to WordPress since they could break things and that would be hard to detect/fix later.
I wonder if there's any "best of both worlds" project out there that keeps the full history but still has a nice layman-friendly UI like WordPress...
@raboof I do hear you about the revision tracking. There *are* some plugins like "Stream" that do activity tracking / logging so that you can find out exactly who changed what: https://wp-stream.com/
If you use the Jetpack plugin, there is also an "Activity" log as part of that.
