Ask DN: what is your blog set up with?

    I've used Jekyll for a while now, but because I'm as much a developer as I am a designer I don't consider making changes to it "switching themes;" I realize you probably aren't like that, so Jekyll doesn't sound like its for you.

    I've really loved Craft, but it's not at all theme-based. You'll have to basically design and code each template, but its worth it because of its flexibility.

    Enjoy! If you have any questions feel free to ask.

      +1 for Jekyll—but Jason's right, you have to be willing to tinker. Not an out-of-the-box solution.

      Agreed, I found a theme that was more in the direction I was headed format wise, and wanted to "switch themes" so I could change most of the code and get it to match the rest of my website. It would seem pretty dumb to use a static site generator using a command line... and then use a theme haha.

      But I am not as much dev as I am designer. thanks for the help!
