What could be using for blogging in place of WordPress?

 

Right now I'm trying Grav, but since it uses proc_open in its scheduler I'm not sure it's the best choice.

 

Does someone can recommend me other options?

Grav is not bad. Do you really need the scheduler?

I don't need it. To be honest, if I didn't misclick on it I probably wouldn't never saw it was broken.
I just thought that it could cause problems with its functionality or security issues.

 

Also, someone on Discord said Grav could be worse than WordPress for the server, so it made me a little insecure.

Does it really is true?

 

If that's not the case I can stay with it since I really liked how Grav works and I've found a good template for blogging.

No way. Grav is 200% better than badly-coded WordPress, especially since it's flat-file (though some might argue). Whoever told you that gave false information.

If you are worried about server resources and depending on what features you want your blog to have, you could investigate using a pre generated blog managed by one of the static site generators such as Hugo or Zola.  Then the server never has to do any more work than delivering unchanging files over HTTP.  But of course your readers can't make comments and such.  You can work around some of that by using Ecmascript for interactivity and external services for state/data, for example Disqus for comments, at the cost of losing privacy/control of that data.

 

This page has a list of them:

There ain't no such thing as 'worse than WordPress'. Literally any product that's not WordPress...is better than WordPress.

Code it yourself in django using Corey Schafer's django tutorials you can make a good blogging site, or use xenforo but it doesnt serve the same purpose, its a forum software and its 125$.

I wouldn't go near it, too heavy and cost too high.
Why don't you go for ghost cms, simple and very fast in loading but you will have to add a discuss for user comment.

Talking about Joomla, I have been trying to get a free site on their domain as is offered at :
 

https://launch.joomla.org/

so as to check it out.

 

However, can't do it ! Comes up with error each time !

 

This does not inspire much confidence in it !..has anybody managed to do the same recently ?
