Weighing the pros and cons of a static site.

Invariably I come back to the problem of maintaining a static website without using a fully featured generator, but one of my own. Each new page poses logistics of integration, something that a generator for the most part takes care of. It’s possible I could import the majority of the site into WordPress, but that poses other complications. Using RapidWeaver looks like the logical choice because I can maintain the current site structure, but RW lacks an importer, so a lot of time just copying and pasting over pages, not something I want to do. The limbo continues.

<div class="content well">
<h3>You have been unsubscribed.</h3><div style="clear: both; font-family: arial, verdana, sans-serif; font-size: 8px; font-variant: small-caps; font-weight: normal; padding: 2px; padding-left:10px;padding-top:20px;">powered by <a href="https://www.phplist.com/poweredby?utm_source=download3.6.5&amp;utm_medium=poweredtxt&amp;utm_campaign=phpList" target="_blank" title="powered by phpList version 3.6.5, &copy; phpList ltd">phpList</a></div></p></div>

This block took much longer to locate than I was expecting.  phpList is a HUGE program and finding where things are originating from isn’t as straightforward as I’d like. The lesson this time around (again!), was to look at the HTML of the rendered unsubscribe page and the div that surrounded the block. Then I searched for the string clear: both; font-family: arial, verdana, sans-serif; font-size: 8px; in the phpList folder to see where it showed up – connect.php.
