I'm considering using Serendipity on a Hostgator server, but there's a catch. I'm wondering if anyone can tell me whether S9Y will meet my needs or whether there's another CMS or blogging platform that will.
Here's what I need:
1. Static website generation and multisite (on same domain) blogging. Static blogging is ideal, but not necessary. This means a static site on the root level domain, another in a subdirectory and a blog (static or dynamic) in another subdirectory.
2. The ability to import and migrate an entire blog from a static blogging platform (Thingamablog) via its RSS feed WHILE KEEPING THE SAME URL'S FOR EVERY PAGE. All pages have the html extension. If 301 redirects are necessary, so be it, although I doubt you can redirect non-html files to html files anyway.
3. A combined WYSIWYG editor with the ability to edit and embed html as an option.
4. A support network that's in touch with real people's issues rather than an insider nerd club that thrives on lingo.
Thanks in advance!
