I am Roadwolf, a casual blogger. I have had my blog running for about 18 years now. It started on simple HTML and then wordpress for a while, but much of it’s life has been on Drupal. I have now grown tired of Drupal’s push to update from 7 to 10 and have had nothing but issues and wasted time in attempting to accomplish that.
I am looking to replace my Drupal install with a new self hosted CMS, which ideally will allow me to run several domains off of the same backend if possible. I would like to be able to easily import my data from Drupal. I have well over 1000 posts. So not having to pay for migration would be ideal.
But at minimum I want an easy to maintain site, with access levels / private post options. I mostly write, but also enjoy posting the odd photo album/story. I wonder if there is any sort of integration to turn photos uploaded into NFT’s automatically with this CMS? It is something I was pondering as a way to ensure copyright? but never really dived into yet.
Tracking visitors and hits is also important to me. I love knowing where people are visiting my site from. So built in analytics or the ability to use matomo or something would be ideal. I like to avoid using cloud or non-self hosted services.
I do tend to enjoy doing things the ‘hard way’ or old school way when it comes to scripting and customizing things. But I also enjoy and appreciate a helpful and friendly community, to help me learn and guide me when I am tackling a new project such as a new CMS. And I hope to find that here?
