Reincarnations of digitalsouls.com include its first online appearance as a collection of simple html pages (1997-2000). In 2001, the site saw a new reincarnation as a PHP reactor (2001-3). This virtual reincarnation was followed by a very successful life as a PHP Nuke. During its life as a PHP nuke, digitalsouls.com evolved and grew through multiple versions of that publishing platform (2004-2013). Today, after a rather brief incarnation as a Joomla site (2013-14), digitalsouls.com emerges once more in its latest virtual reincarnation, this time as a WordPress site.
Digitalsouls.com thrived for almost a decade as a php Nuke site. Unfortunately, the platform began to show limitations starting in 2008. We knew we needed to find a new platform soon. But what was the best way to go? We needed a platform that works seamlessly and easily across devices and operating systems. We also wanted a platform that allows for multiple authors and strong community involvement. After some brief experimentations with Joomla, we decided that WordPress was the best way for us to go.
While the process of reincarnation may be a fundamental fact of karmic life for Buddhists and websites alike, it is hardly ever an enjoyable or desirable process. Rebirth as a WordPress site, from installation to customisation has been fairly straight forward so far. We look forward to bringing various features from earlier incarnations back to the current one.
