Drupal is great, Drupal is good, but Drupal can cause headaches, don’t you agree? Depending on your version, you can come into an issue where you can’t load up your website after importing your database. A lot of people use something called Drush, but there are users out there that do not use that, or maybe Drush is just giving them issues. Anyway, when you get a white

WordPress is great. We love it. It keeps evolving way faster than Drupal ever did. Well, in the beginning Drupal was great. But for some reason, Drupal died. Anyway.

From then on, all you have to do is type:

trash my-file.txt 1 trash my-file.txt
