2024 blog update: farewell WordPress, hello Hugo

A quick update on the current status and future of the site

Hello there!

Just a heads up from Vectops. It’s been a while since our last post here, but we’re far from done with the blog! What a busy year has 2023 been for everybody, huh?

Anyway, we’re pleased to announce that our scope for the project towards the upcoming year is to continue bringing interesting and helpful approaches to common issues that anyone in the IT world can face.

For now, the big news is that we have recently switched from the good ol’ WordPress engine to Hugo so the whole site is now managed as code, something we as authors are already thankful for. Hopefully this change will bring more stability, better performance and even help reducing the attack surface of our platform, something essential for us as webmasters. All without sacrificing useful features for you as readers, such as the “search” bar or the archive.

The only thing we still have to re-think is the comment system, since it is the main way you as user got to interact with us and our content. It’s a pity that all the old comments had to be left inside WordPress, since there was some valuable insights from you as well over there, but don’t worry, we’ll eventually come up with a solution for this.

Wish you all the best, and let’s keep rolling in this next year.

The Vectops team
