Hi Stackers, We are planning to build a product information portal that also provides useful articles and blogs. Application Frontend is going to be built on Next.js with Authentication and Product Database helped by Firebase. But for the Blog / Article we are debating between WordPress/GraphQL plug-in or Strapi.
Please share your thoughts.
I am trying to build a specific field web community (mainly for hobbyists) that is somehow required:
- content posting
- user commenting
- topic & user following/liking/disliking
- event posting (users can participate)
I am considering using Strapi as the CMS backend. What would be the best practice for the front-end?
- Files structure
- Lifecycle callbacks
- Plugin styles
- Global policies
- Scoped policies
- Plugin policies
- Public assets
- Role-based access control

Let's say you're planning on managing content for a website, native app, and widget. Instead of using a CMS that's baked into the website client, it makes more sense to decouple your content entirely and access it through an API or SDK. That's a headless CMS. That's Directus.
