ClassicPress – a new form of censorship on forums

The original posts:

  1. It’s not about ‘‘everything for everyone’’. First of all, the question is wrong (’‘business as a target market’’). The WordPress motto is ‘‘the freedom to build anything you want’’ – ‘‘for free’’ and I want the same thing from ClassicPress.

CP has to work on the whole area, from simple blogging themes, to websites made with the most performant builders as they did before WP 5.0 – Gutenberg is primarily a threat for the builders. Gutenberg it is a disguised builder, who wants to replace the other builders, becoming a kind of ‘universal builder’.

  1. For simple static pages I really prefer Wix (sorry) under OTHER conditions.
  2. For blogging I just want to write using the default theme, without losing my time with Gutenberg blocks.
  3. For design there are developers who do not need Gutenberg.
  4. ‘‘Business’’ not necessary means ‘‘commerce’’. WooCommerce and other key plugins are under the direct Automattic-WP control, anyway. CP will be behind them with one step on a permanent basis.

If CP it is not intended to be for ‘everyone’… it’s a waste of time. No way to compete with WP in other conditions – for now, at least.
“For Businesses”, “For Bloggers”, “For Developers” – for everyone.

2. ‘‘I don’t work with clients unless they have been in business for at least five years, have several employees, have at least tried marketing in some capacity before on a serious level and understand basic concepts around business (such as need for a plan, P&L statements, book keeping, and so forth).’’

My point: Stupid. I really don’t care about their their seniority in the business or if they are idiots as long as they can pay for a project.

‘‘CP should pursue legitimate WP agencies, businesses using WP to earn tangible profits.’’

My point: Idiocy. The customer really don’t care what is in the background – that’s your job. Your customers will only enter some basic data or blog posts.

‘‘What works for a global corporation cannot and should not be the same path for a startup.’’

My point: a global corporation works mostly with his own employees, not with you.

  1. show me a single website made by you in WP or CP (one link)
  2. did you ever try to use the Wix editor ? show me a single website made by you in Wix.

CP in the actual state is used and will be used mostly (90% at least) exactly by the hobbyist just because they can’t adapt to WP.

Needless to say that I have not seen any website masterpiece of those who give their opinion freely.
