Thanks for the alternate viewpoint, as well as sharing your support for the Sitecake project. I’m a big fan myself, and do my best to fix things on my own. In fact, I found this post while searching the forum for information.
Whenever I have encountered problems, Predag checked things out, and fixed them, which I suppose he will use in the next release. When my free trial was about to run out, I decided to continue, as while Sitecake has its issues, I trust him to continue to make it better.
Wordpress is the work of the devil Most of my clients are as tech unsavvy as they come. They want simple sites that are easy to maintain, without investing a lot of time and money to learn a new process. In this regard, Sitecake is the opposite. The end user just has to know how to login, drag over a page section, start typing, and not forget to click Publish.
So long story short, while SC may not be in perfect shape, the support has been great, and I think that some of the issues I’ve encountered have helped at least a little in making it better. I also don’t think it’s a bad thing for people to charge to integrate into sites that are crazy complicated or poorly coded. But in general, I think fixing Sitecake itself when issues arise instead of tweaking individual websites better serves all of us, as well as moving Sitecake.
I’d like to continue this discussion somewhere ore appropriate, but don’t see a forum section for it. Maybe in feedback?
