As the title states, I'm thinking of moving forward with react completely. I understand react might be an overkill for simple brochure websites, but if the same client decides to scale the website into an e-commerce site in the future, it seems like it'll make sense to implement something like react + Snipcart/headless Shopify.
SEO + CMS will be available using something like Contentful or Strapi, and using Gatsby or Next will generate the proper pages for indexing. With more passing day, I feel like headless is the way to go.
But the fact that WordPress is still relevant is not a fluke. It's quick, widely adopted, plus it's highly likely that clients have used or at least heard of WordPress in the past. So offering a level of familiarity does reassure clients they aren't buying technology they're unaware of. 90% of the time, your clients don't really care if you're building with WordPress or react. In the end, they are looking for a straight-forward solution for their endeavors.
What is your opinion? Do you think it's more practical to use WordPress or go with react all the way?
Update: Thank you everyone sincerely for the great advice and recommendations. I should clarify, I meant react vs Wordpress, referencing the traditional LAMP stack Wordpress.org application and not headless WordPress. I can certainly use headless WordPress if the client truly desires the same interface. As others have mentioned, however, the client would not be able to utilize WP plugins as of today. Although this in turn is a double-edged sword for me, that's a discussion for another day.
I've decided to adopt a react/strapi/firebase(auth)/netlify + snipcart/headless shopify. I will use headless Wordpress or ghost if strapi alone isn't enough. I will create another thread with my completed template if you guys are interested in seeing that.
Thanks again and happy holidays
I always loved the picture on the cover if this Silvia brochure, and remember researching it a long time ago and seeing the photo was taken in California. This weekend I decided to try and find the spot to see if I could recreate the photo, and I found it! Unfortunately the building has been repainted, but if I'm ever in LA, I'll probably still stop for a picture. https://imgur.com/gallery/d5oj9iw
I think there's only about 50 of them, he picked them up from dealers for me and my brother to read while he was shopping for our 2003 Chevrolet Malibu (a very exciting car).
It includes such hits as: "trailering with GMC trucks," the 2005 Chevrolet Optra, the 2005 Chevrolet Epica, the 2005 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx (does anyone remember these?), Chevrolet Commercial Trucks, the 2005 Chevrolet SSR, and of course the infamous Pontiac Aztek.
The 2014 Impala brochure is from when my dad was looking for a replacement to our 2003 Malibu ten years later. Alas, we ended up with another Malibu, this time a 2013. This one is equipped with an electronic handbrake, which makes the car a bit dull compared to the lively 2003.
I don't see them being worth anything but I thought it would be cool to share. Ask anything you want while I still have them haha, probably gonna toss them
So these are all the ship brochures I could find, a slight disclaimer most of these are old and may contain out of date information, if I missed any you know of please say in the comments and I’ll add them,
[RSI Apollo](https://robertsspaceindustries.com//media/... keep reading on reddit ➡
So.... Hear me out. I was advised to get the advice of fellow redditors, because I was told I am NTA but I feel like one.
I (mid 20sF) am a pretty quiet person, keep to myself. My coworker (late 30sF) has very fine and shoulder length hair along with some (just being honest), hair loss. When she styles her hair, you can’t tell. She is nice, but can be a little abrasive/snippy with others. I have long, halfway down my back, fine hair. She has made comments about my hair, how she is growing hers out, etc. I cheer her on. (Note: I have a health condition where my medicine can cause hair loss, etc., but so far I’ve been ok, or so I thought.) Well, today, apparently I just let everything bubble up (past snide remarks), and she gave me a brochure she found on hair loss. Said here you go, read this. I just blurted out... “oh cool. Are you going to try it?” I couldn’t help it. She smirked and said she was going to the bathroom.
So Reddit, AITA?
The idea is not to overwhelm the new student by showing them the whole book. If they wish to continue after the brochure, they advance to chapter 4 of the book.
This deceptive strategy makes accepting a Bible study seem like less of a commitment than it really is. They pretty much admit this when they introduce the brochure. A leaked letter to elders tells service overseers that the new book will not be displayed on literature carts.
Another purpose of this wasteful strategy is probably to make it easier for “publishers” to discontinue studies early on if it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. That way they can better spend their time finding potential converts. This further highlights that the purpose of their work is not to teach the Bible, but to add to their numbers.

I am a graphic design student currently working in an internship, and i'm making some print materials for my company. One of them is a trifold brochure, and I have no idea how to set it up for print. My boss plans on sending it off to be printed, so I want to make sure I do it properly. I've been reading that you need to accommodate a specific amount of space for each panel? Has anyone had experience with making something like this? I get using three columns and margin spaces on letter sized paper, but I have read that the printer won't be able to fold this perfectly, so naturally I am concerned. Thanks so much for any help.
So, I am translating a brochure in English. It is about some mosaic statues that are typical of a place on one island, but the name of the island and the place where these statues are is the same. But the statues are only found on that specific place on the island. So, let's say this place is called Kent. And this place is not a city, nor it is a town, but it is not a village as well. It is something between a town and a village. There is a good term for this word in source language, but English doesn't really have that term.
Is there a difference in meaning (of the size of the town) when you are using the noun "town", for example:
"the town of (name of the place)" or "(name of the place) town", like "the town of Kent" or "Kent town"?
I want to use the term town, but I don't want it to sound that it's a big town, so the title would be:
"Mosaic statues of the town of Kent" or "Mosaic statues of Kent town"?
Is there a difference? "Kent town" sounds better to me, only because it seems that the emphasis here is not on the word town (it kind of sounds "smaller" than in the "the town of" version), but maybe it's just me?
I know I sound crazy, but I've been losing my mind over this, please help me out! Thanks!
I want to print brochures to send of with samples of my products to wholesalers. I have managed to make a PDF file from the mac program 'keynote' that I email out but I don't know the steps I need to take to get this into a format suitable for printing and the where to send it for printing.
I have looked at using 99designs but I feel like here you are paying more for the creativity whereas I just want someone who is good with indesign or a similar program who can make me a file from my keynote pdf that I can send off to my local printer.
Any ideas for online services that can do this without it being a costly exercise?
Is there a japanese website/online archive for brochures of japanese classic cars? Any Help is appreciated?
I am looking for a site similar to www.veikl.com
Thanks in advance
So I made my portfolio with a contact form, set up a domain on route 53, and then just hosted on an Amazon S3 bucket....but then I realized that I needed some sort of backend to make my form work and AWS S3 only supported static sites, so instead of blowing up my deployment, creating a full stack app with node + nodemailer, then migrating to a different hosting service, I thought there must be an easier way.
My workaround has been to use postmail to submit the form and then redirect back to my portfolio. I can’t really customize the inputs and I’m temporarily redirecting the user to a different site so it’s really just a makeshift solution.
So, how do people create contact forms (or any forms really) for these serverless brochure sites? What am I missing?
Basically, I want to simulate the most common causes of performance issues on various types of WordPress sites.
For example, a WooCommerce site can be slow due to reasons that a simple WordPress site will never have to face. However, in some cases they both may use a common theme or plugin that could be the culprit.
What's the best way to go about it?
