What's a good CMS for dealing with textfiles

    Thinking about opening a textfile site.

    It would need support for inline images, since they are a necessity now.

    PDF support would be another issue.

    Wordpress is kind of retarded for that sort of use case.

    I was thinking totse pretty much, except with images, no formatting errors, and curated to keep the content up to date.

    Bueno motherfucker
    Was thinking of adding a textfile feature for ISS, could be highly beneficial as it might drive more traffic here.
    What do you think Star Trek?

    I'm pretty sure this URL is already shit canned by Google, so I don't think that would help.

    Having some new users would be cool though.

    Why not make it a wiki and let the users fix the boring shit like spelling, formatting and so on? Of course, certain text files would probably have to be locked.

    I support you in your endeavor. Do you have all the original totse text files? My archive is spotty and i wouldnt mind downloading a complete collection in one go.

    Maybe that might be an option.

    I have the idea in my head that wikis are slow, aren't really text files, and that dealing with users messing stuff up would be a huge headache.

    I dunno if that's really justified though.

    whatever you do the integrity of the text files shouldnt be mollested.

    including spellings amd grandmas.

    You arent wrong, it has ups and downs, just like a pure text file repository, though the latter would be less of a hassle. The only reason I mentioned it was due to many totse text files having instructions that were outright wrong and needed to be corrected before some unfortunate fucks blew themselves up, particularly the guide on making a pipe bomb. Someone wrote an updated guide but the old one was still there.

    You can make it a closed wiki where only registered members from NIS are allowed to contribute.

    The Git approach to versioning would make much more sense than the Wiki approach tbh.

    I have no idea what this post is even asking for. You want a bunch of text files with images on a site... and you want to do what with them? What are you looking for in a CMS that wordpress doesn't give you? Or are you even looking for a CMS at all?

    Wordpress works, but I'm not a massive fan.

    I'm wondering what would be a good CMS to curate a collection of text files complete with images and possibly videos.

    What does 'curating' involve, exactly?

    The OG big dick trill nigga answer is a make file and standard unix toolchain. Maybe a perl script.

    The regular big dick trill nigga answer is a make file and pandoc

    The trendy javascript kids answer is gatsby or next

    Dokuwiki is a better option than wordpress
