I was going to write a post about implementing search on a static site, this after spending a day implementing a rustic comments system on a static site.
You’d have thought I’d have realised by now that WordPress provides all this stuff out of the box, and probably needs 30 minutes’ configuration to get everything just right. I mean, I “ditched” WordPress eight years ago (and blogged about it (natch)).
Instead of publishing 374 posts on tinkering with Jekyll I should’ve written just one back in 2013 about how it was fun getting my hands dirty with a static site generator, but, no thanks. I’d rather just get on with writing stuff. I’ll get some decent hosting and re-import everything back to WordPress.
I am joking, more or less.
Of course, writing about reading, writing and publishing online is fun. But still, all the time I’ve wasted tinkering with this stuff.
