A busy day

I have converted my blog back to a WordPress install from Hugo.
Why ?
I was talking to a PSO (Protective Services Officer) at Melbourne Central. He had recommended WordPress because he uses it to develop web sites for businesses.
He uses Woocommerce and Stripe to set up shopping carts for clients.
He said it was a very flexible solution. He cited examples where client’s sales had increased 5 or 10 fold because allowing credit card payments makes it very easy for people to buy your product.

So good bye Hugo, good bye static sites … hello WordPress.

I spent Most of Friday and the wee hours of Saturday morning getting my wordpress blog up and running on Zuver.

It now has an SSL certificate so the offical URL is https://www.stephenhucker.com

Since I got the Zuver wordpress hosting for less then $10 for a year it will be interesting to see the renewal price, as it seems to have gone up a lot since I purchased mine.

The full retail price was a little less the $50, but the website now talks of similar plans north of $100

Might be worth paying as the system works quite well.
