Sticking With WordPress for Now

As you probably know, this site runs on WordPress. WordPress is really good at what it does, which is why my site is still based on it. There are some things I don’t like about it, and one of those is that its MySQL based. I would prefer it to be using SQLite as this site has a low traffic volume. MySQL is overkill and more expensive to run on this web host. There used to be a module called PDO for WordPress which allowed the use of SQLite, however it doesn’t work with the newer versions of WordPress, and it appears the module is no longer being maintained. When I have some time, I’ll pick up the module and perform the required modifications to make it work with the latest version of WordPress.
