For this blog post,I’m going to give my first impressions on two random content management systems that I’ve been experimenting with: SitePad and Nibbleblog.
Sitem works on many Web Hosting Control Panels i.e. cPanel, Plesk, Directadmin, CentOS Web Panel, Interworx.
At first glance, Sitepad looks like WordPress, but I quickly learned that it’s nothing like it. Maybe it’s because I’m used to WordPress, but Sitepad seems to have a steeper learning curb than WordPress. After experiementing with Sitepad for about a half-an-hour, I took a break.
When I came back to experiment with Sitepad, I couldn’t log into the admin area. I entered my email address and it sent me an email with the login link. When I clicked on the link, there was a message on the login page that says that the token is either invalid or expired. I contacted my webhost, and they told me to contact Sitepad. I sent Sitepad an email explaining the situation, but they have yet to respond. At that point, I’ve decided to give up.
If you’re looking to create a simpl blog, Nibbleblog may be for you. The one thing that really sticks out about Nibbleblog is that it has SEO (Search Engine Optimization) options in the settings. That makes it a lot easier to increase your blog’s ranking in search engines. The themes that Nibbleblog has to offer are very elegant. There three types of blog posts you can create: simple blog posts, video blog posts, and quote blog posts. These are the only positive things I have to say about Nibbleblog.
For one thing, Nibbleblog only offers you very few themes and plugins. To make matters worse, you do not have any options to customize them. Finally, you don’t have the option to install third-party themes or plugins. WordPress allows you to add featured images to your blog posts, but Nibbleblog doesn’t. This can decrease your blog’s visual appeal.
