Hello all,

 

First off I really appropriate what's happening here from providing such a feature-rich free hosting to providing ACTUAL support with it! That's truly amazing!

 

 

What do you think is the least heavy blogging software I could use? I don't need fancy stuff too. For personal blogging. I have some HTML/CSS/PHP experience. I don't like how heavy wordpress is as I've tried it on Johnny server the other day.

 

Off-topic: Just a small question to make sure everything is OK.
Currently I'm on the wait for Tommy to open registration. I had hosted an account on Johnny but unfortunately it was so slow so I queued my account for deletion since yesterday (13th of this month).
My question is that I immediately went on registering a new account with another email, but from same browser with same IP etc...

My question is, will an automated system detect that I'm trying to create double accounts when my intention was not? Do I need to open a support ticket in the proper forum for this or should I wait if anything goes wrong?

Thankyou.

Try using Joomla. You're free to create a new account. We suspend people with multiple accounts manually so it's fine.

From what I could tell, e107 was pretty fast too. You can use Joomla if you want, as flazepe suggested, but I find it harder to use than e107.

 

In the end, its up to you. :)

flazepe, Thank you for confirming this and for your suggestion!
jenovaon, I did not know about e107 and it seems minimal (which I really like & want). Thankyou!

Still would like to know more from people's experience if possible  :) 

What do you guys think of the idea of creating one with HTML/CSS... well not exactly a blog 'system' but rather just pages where I just add topics etc? I have this idea but not sure if it will be a pain going forward.

If you have good experience with HTML, i would say go for it. Making something yourself is usually better than using someone else's creation.

 

Otherwise, if you are like me and hardly know about HTML, I would stick to either learning about HTML or using the script installer.

I've created small bits of the homepage but then stopped and thought a blogging system will be better, but then after trying some of those systems, figured they're not really worth it for me, especially wordpress. That thing is heavy as ....
I'm coming from mainly a C programming background so I have some hate toward the current the rather heavy web stack stuff, starting from the browser.

Thank you for your encouragement. I may start doing that soon.

Couldn't have said it better myself  :P

 

WP is the program we love to hate around here. Slow, bloated, and also full of security holes. It's the leading cause for High Load suspensions too.

Yeah he does recommend one. He's mentioned it a lot here in the forums. I'll tell you - it's Joomla.

Yeah Joomla. With just a theme and one or two extensions it runs very well on our servers and is also less prone to being attacked in my experience (not to say it can't be, but it has a better design and security architecture, and there's also just lower demand for Joomla malware, so you run across far fewer malicious extensions and exploits for it).
