I've spent the last few days making a thing to keep my notes online and public. This is partly why I've been looking at blog/CMS platforms for awhile. My two existing blogs were not quite right for this project so it was going to have to be stand alone. I finally decided self hosted WordPress had all the features I needed and I already know how run WordPress.
I needed a blog script that had:
- Site Search - duh, for searching.
- Categories - for organizing and cross referencing.
- Tags - finer grained organizing and cross referencing.
- Pages - cos not everything can be or should be a post.
- Comments - because keeping notes online and public is a bit like thinking out loud with other people around, you expect feedback. You learn from feedback. Other people expand upon your thoughts.
Anyway I got the site up and running and you can see it at: https://cyberzettel.com/ .
I don't want to make this a long post but you can read about my quick conversion to ClassicPress here.
