I’ve used some time now to make a programming page for this site. It’s pretty much done (I’m missing a few projects there which I will add later), and it was all but easy to get the formatting as I want it. I’m not sure if I’m happy with it yet, but it’s acceptable.
I had a few problems with WordPress when working on this. First of all, it for some reason was a little trigger happy on the paragraph tags. It added </p>s where there were no opening tags, <p>s where there shouldn’t be a tag in the first place, and so on. It might be my fault though, being new to WordPress and all. In any case, I found an addon to disable automatic formatting. Also for some reason, sometimes when posting the whole content of the page disappeared. It seemed to have something to do with the combination of the visual editor and shortcodes. It seems I’m not the only one with this problem. I disabled the visual editor, and it all worked nicely.
I’m very content with WordPress in general though – it’s amazingly easy to customize to my needs (among other things, it’s very easy to write plugins). It just takes a little bit getting used to. And hopefully some of the bugs are fixed in later versions. In the meantime, I got workarounds.
