Singing the Joys of WordPress

I have to say, I do love the fact that Word­Press allows me to write posts and sched­ule them to post them­selves to cov­er days when I don’t feel up to blog­ging. I’ve been hav­ing a lot of trou­ble view­ing the mon­i­tor lately–my eyes feel like they’re danc­ing and noth­ing stays in focus, lead­ing to migraines very quick­ly. That is not a good thing when I’m in the last week of class­es for the semes­ter!

I get a lot of spam com­ments on this blog, but over 99% of them are caught by Defen­sio. That’s a real fig­ure, not an esti­mate! See?

Many of those are tru­ly dis­gust­ing, even with­out ever fol­low­ing a link. If I could find a way to auto­mat­i­cal­ly dis­able com­ments on any post over a cer­tain age, I think the quan­ti­ty would go way down. I don’t want to do that man­u­al­ly, though, and I haven’t found a plu­g­in that will do it auto­mat­i­cal­ly. I did make a post in the WP forums ask­ing about one, hop­ing that I just missed some­thing that is already avail­able.

    I’m just get­ting into using WP and i was hop­ing to get your feed­back into the dif­fer­ence of using WP verse Dru­pal, any sug­ges­tions to using one over the oth­er?

    I don’t have exten­sive expe­ri­ence with Dru­pal, but I have used it. I def­i­nite­ly pre­fer Word­Press for blog­ging. Dru­pal would still be bet­ter for some projects, but it is more com­plex, and I’d hes­i­tate to set up a site using it and hand it over to a non-tech­ni­cal per­son. I feel pret­ty safe doing the same with a WP instal­la­tion.
