We all have words we live by, but how many can say those words are worth dying for? Not metaphorically; actually facing physical death and leaving the world we know. The words of this creed may very well lead to this, but I’m not afraid. If I die, the next time I open my eyes, I’ll find that it was all worth it in the end.
How many people can say that?
Looking around on Installatron, I found a number of various apps and tools that I could download onto my domain and play with besides WordPress. Let’s give some of ‘em a try!
(They’re probably free for a reason…)
1. Known (CMS)
I had never heard of Known before looking around on Installatron, and there’s a reason why: it’s boring. There’s nothing special about it; just another basic content management system/crappy blog system. You can post audio, picture, and text posts, check analytics, and install a number of social media plugins. Just like a blog. And, unlike WordPress, I can’t find any access to the HTML of the site or any useful support. Minus two points.
All of it’s themes are basic, but they manage to beat WordPress’s themes in aesthetics. And that’s only because there aren’t any! I hate default themes no matter the platform, so no points off here. That’s just my personal bias.
One good thing I can say about it is that it has a comic uploading platform, which is nice for cartoonists like me. But no other comic host can beat ComicFury, no matter how hard it tries. Especially when ComicFury gives me unlimited bandwidth, 5 urls, fast support, and full HTML and CSS access.
Ultimately, it works for a basic blog site, but since I require access to HTML and since I hate cookie-cutter web design and templates, I’ll never touch it again. Honestly, Tumblr works a whole lot better with a LOT more possibilities.
