After my old WordPress setup broke one time too many I finally decided to convert the site to something nicer to work with. I ended up going with Pelican, which is a static site generator using Python.
It seems quite basic at first, though I'm sure there are features waiting to be discovered. The main advantage is that I no longer need to worry about software updates when not actually changing the site. Another is that practically any hosting setup works painlessly.
I tried to fix up all intra site links, but others are hopelessly broken, so you may have been directed to this page instead of what you were looking for. Sorry!
