  • that's a cool way to do this thing but still want to add what i added in that presentation, just shifting to wordpress is not enough, even though the product is very good it comes with its own share of vulnerabilities and workarounds so do keep in mind few things.

    1. Keep your wordpress install updated.
    2. Keep your plugin's updated.
    3. for better speed avoid a lot of plugin's (stike a balance between speed and workability or looks)

    That's just it and then we are good to go.
