I've toyed around with this with not perfect solution. Not to be a massive Basecamp advocate, but for work, organization, and thread finding, this is perfect for what I do.

Thanks! I had a feeling this was going to be the answer. I was also looking at Revue and Podia, but Substack definitely seems like the easiest choice. I appreciate your help!

I'm definitely going to do more digging into this. Currently, when I build sites with dynamic content, it's a combo of elementor and advanced custom fields.

I’m always blown away with the “script + procedures” efforts in digital marketing and sales these days. Just because there is a script, doesn't mean you can't customize to your current efforts…
