Medium: A Publisher's Perspective
364 days ago
Seen so many publishers with this exact issue.
For instance, adding a feature to perform a specific function means you will have the choice between literally thousands of plug-ins. It’s a bit like picking an app in Apple’s or Android’s app stores among hundreds purporting to perform the same task. Due to the lack of independent and reliable recommendation systems, you’ll be lucky if you find a good quality plug-in. For instance an add-on that updates in sync with regular Wordpress updates. If it doesn’t, you’ll end up with an important feature of your blog suddenly not working and creating havoc. Not to mention the headaches of erratic rendering between various platforms (web, mobile, browsers), difficulties in making proper imports into a responsive newsletter, a horrible image management system, and buried sub-menus with obscure box checks to solve annoying issues.
