I have spent a bit of time over the last few days setting up Watir.com, hosted here on WordPress.

We were originally aiming to host our own version of Confluence and JIRA and use Confluence to serve the Watir.com homepage, but this ended up being a lot more complicated and expensive than originally planned.

The great thing about WordPress is, although it was originally a blogging platform, its functionality also works as a very neat CMS. Whilst wordpress.com has some limitations over wordpress.org, we can live with these limitations for now as we have a free (as in beer) hosted site that the world can see.

Check it out.

  1. I’ve used watir in the past and it kicks ass. I think I’ll be using it again soon for a new project.

    Also, Congratulations on the move! Another option maybe a little more middle of the road Between the complexity of Confluence + Jira for you would be to just host your own wordpress based site. You could then use something like RoleScoper to basically convert the site to a CMS, with all the benefits of WordPress, throw in a few other plugins and you could have forums and maybe even a simple tracking system. Anyway, cheers!
