Since version 4.4, WordPress has a native responsive image support by including srcset and sizes attributes to the image markups. It’s a good function, no doubts.
However, it can cause problems which you are probably have, if you are reading this.
In my case, I convert my blog from a local WordPress installation using HTTrack. As for today, HTTrack can’t recognize those attributes, then, some images weren’t being showing for my readers.
Static websites are faster than WordPress installations. However, I am tech enthusiast and I love a challenge. I’m well aware of Jekyll’s existence, but I love WordPress.
Since my blog doesn’t have any dynamic content besides the comments, I decided to go for it.
There are plenty reasons why you shouldn’t do that, here’s a few:
1. Very difficult to scale;
2. Difficult to edit;
3. Just for static content.
