    Question WordPress or static HTML


    I'm making a website for a friend. Initially, I thought a WP site would be good because she could update the text herself if she wanted. However, as I started working on it, I'm wondering if it would be better to have an HTML site.

    For one, there are only 3 pages, plus a landing page. For another, the site is going to be fairly static -- maybe a change or two every couple of months. Third, I'd have to do all the editing and administering myself it looks like.

    The design is a custom-made one, so the HTML is already ready. I'll now have to create a WP them for it. However, the landing page has a very different layout from the 3 inside pages, so it means creating a theme using templates. Now, I'm wondering if it's all too much work for a simple website that'll stay more or less static (and which I'll be administering in any case).

    Any thoughts?

    If you only need/have 3 static pages, then I think you could just keep it like that.

    If you want to learn more or the site begin to grow, you can always consider switching over to something else.
