  20. 20. Pros • Security - better than what I had • PHP-based • Responsive themes • Plugins! • Better admin UX - including ACL & versioning • Less friction to update
  21. 21. Cons • Security - WordPress is a big target • Learning curve • Migration effort • Ego - would using WordPress make me look like a n00b?
  22. 22. Concerns • How to organise the site? How much of the cross-referencing to automate? “This has to be a solved problem, right?” • 20 years of inbound links and PageRank to preserve • Hard-coded HTML styles in the DB to clean up
  23. 23. Stats
  24. 24. Money Stuff
  25. 25. What’s Next • Set up SSL • Mop up broken links • Add new content • Update design once illustrations are finished • Keep an eye on stats & revenue
  26. 26. Building Sites that Last • Own your stuff - but syndicate where needed • Don’t change your URLs • Avoid proprietary enhancements - stick with standards • PROVIDE GOOD CONTENT
