I am OLD and retired, but still interested in web building/hosting/etc Nothing commercial at present as I have been retired for several years.
I have several sites built with WP. These are all fairly simple sites and work well. But my natural instinct is to explore what is available.
I stumbled upon SiteCake, and tested the demos. I liked it enough to resurrect an old domain name I have and bought 12 months cheap hosting. There, via Softaculous, there was an install for SiteCake, so i went ahead and installed it into a subdirectory. It worked well, but it would never give me the login to allow any edits. Turns out it was v1.0.??? and the sub-dir probably did not help. .
So I looked at updating it via the SC site. Uh-Oh. now I need to buy a license for V 2.2. ??
That threw me, as my Softaculous installer said it was Free.
Not being mean or anything, but if I was able to recoup the license fee, I would not hesitate to purchase. Looks like a great product with a limited market…
I like to post some of my learned knowledge on the web to help others. This is mainly some Windows programming notes and SQL notes. SiteCake would have been a great platform, but for the current licensing…
My search goes on, trying to get clear or WP. I just want something with a bunch of semi-static web pages that I can manage.
Can you prevent Softaculous from providing the old free version? I hope so… Would have saved me a few hours
I wish the developers continued success.
