What should one recommend to people for self-hosting a website? WordPress seems the standard option, which is pretty good in most respects. I think there are a few things that it doesn’t do well though.
One of those is structured data, and I’m attempting to solve that in one respect via Tabulate.
Another is the old photo collection problem: WordPress isn’t great for managing a ‘photo album’ type of thing, especially where one wants to assign different permissions to photos. I’m not really sure of the answer to this one. Perhaps something around better management of post passwords?
