So after spending a day with MODx and another catching up on my CSS and HTML, I figured I see if I could install WordPress on my site manually. The problem was that WordPress seems like a pretty easy and popular simple blog site, but GoDaddy (my hosting company) doesn’t let you use their tools to install it with the cheap package I’ve got (free). So I figured that since you can download the files off wordpress.org, then I can follow their manual instructions to upload the content to my site. Well, things seem to have installed okay and I’ve got the MySQL part going. I’m having problems with non-php pages though. Like when you click on “about” it has nowhere to go. I’m wondering if there is a strange permissions thing with the database that I’ll have to investigate. Otherwise I’ve been please with the look and user friendliness of the interface and controls. I’ll keep my fingers crossed and hope I can figure this one out.
