Agreed that if you need more of a website than a lightweight blog, something like WordPress is probably a better fit. But development is very active! -- from our WriteFreely iOS app coming out next week to supporting tools like @submit_as.
@write_as @person @gray @submit_as Templates are a confusing mess, making it near impossible to customize, even if you just want to add some links to the navigation. No replies from federation as comments; no ability to easily change the site icon or federation icon, and more.
I get that write as is trying to build its brand and capital, but even static site generators are doing better than this.
