    With such an extensive experience you pretend to have, you should have known that "html site" in non-strictly-technical vocabulary means "site without database", whereas WP is understood to work with database.

    You obviously have hard time with WP, I can guess it's because WP allowed mere mortals to create website within hours, without having to learn to code or to hire a coder. You may ridicule WP, but remains the fact mentioned above that it powers 30% of the web nowadays; your useless and arrogant comments will not diminish it.

    Since when does HTML have ANYTHING to do with whether a site is database powered or not? HTML is the CODE that the BROWSERS render into a webpage. Browsers do NOT care whether the HTML is database powered or not.

    I definitely have a hard time with ANYTHING that slows the rendering engines of my browsers to a CRAWL. Turdpress code is so bloated that it takes TEN times longer to render than the equivalent raw HTML code. Turdpress uses TEN times the code needed, and since ALL of that code must be rendered by browsers, Turdpress takes TEN times longer to display a page. Anyone that thinks TEN times the code will render faster than a page with ONE TENTH the code is living in DREAMLAND.

    Just because TP powers 30% of the internet does NOT mean it is the best. If you factor in that TP uses TEN times the code, then in REALITY TP only powers THREE PERCENT (3%) of the internet.

    I used crappy site builders like TP (before TP was invented) for years trying to make websites. In the end, the ONLY way to make usable websites was to learn HTML. I finally came to the conclusion that I was wasting my time learning how to make site builders work AND needing to learn HTML to do it. WHY in hell should I learn how to use the site builder AND learn HTML, when all I really needed to learn was HTML? Makes NO sense learning DOUBLE or TRIPLE what is actually needed. Turdpress is no different, just a packaged turd with a different name. Turdpres MIGHT be OK for a one- or two-page website for grandma or the kids, but it is NOT any good for a REAL website.

    I was thinking about doing some work in 'plain html', but the truth is updating content and management are a drag. Used this 15 years ago, but now I'd rather have my wordpress handle all this stuff.

    That's actually pretty generic answer to the original post of the thread. If you need a static site that will not be updated frequently, then 'plain html' will do the job and is better solution, in my opinion. If, however, you plan to update the site frequently, to add new content regularly, or to be able to change the complete layout in few mouse clicks, then wordpress (or another robust CMS) is the way to go.

    Yes I agree , for making an interactive website on PHP with advanced features, then word press will be one of the good solutions to go.

    I see fewer advantages to HTML these days. With all of the wordpress plugins and builders out there, wordpress seems to be the best option for most projects.

    Wordpress for dynamic content, html for static.
