Some time ago I’ve been looking for an archival solution – for projects that no longer need any content updating. I haven’t found anything worthwhile at the time (I found a plugin but it was no longer maintained).
Simply Static is a static site generator for WordPress that helps you create a static site that you can serve separately from your WordPress installation. This provides a couple benefits. One, this allows you to keep WordPress in a secure location that no one can access but you. Two, your static site is going to be really, really fast.
I have no connection with the plugin (and I haven’t tried it yet) but I’m posting it here as it seems a nice solution and was wondering if any of you has ever worked it.
