  • Considering using Webmatrix + WordPress...but no docs?

    Hey all, newcomer, first post so please excuse me for a possible recurring, annoying overdone post...

    The thing is I was considering using Webmatrix 3 to work locally on developing Wordpress sites, but as I wanted to get my hands on it and document myself, and learn, I can't seem to find any information about it.

    I've clicked all the links in Webmatrix site (learning, How to's etc...) and they all reuslt in an Error Page. I tried to surf the site, plus webmatrix' help icon, no links, error pages, not a hint where to find documentation or guides Cry

    I even tried some 3rd party links (some bloggers' articles, walkthroughs) and they too seem to have deleted their posts / articles...!

    Am I being THAT unlucky,? Or is Webmatrix UX so shady? Do I have to think Webmatrix (+ Wordpress?) is going to be left aside or something?

    Thank you for throwing any light on this and have a great day all!

    I see no active advancement from Microsoft on WebMatrix in the past few months. The impression is that now you should switch to something else.

    Visual Studio Code can be an alternative, http://stackoverflow.com/questions/29960999/how-to-run-or-debug-php-on-visual-studio-code-vscode
