Your right if the clients are actually logging into the dashboard. Mine say they will but never do. I think it won't be hard to convince them to make the switch, and sell them on a low maintenance retainer for updates instead of server hosting.

yeah, you are totally right. customers are attached to that "sensation of freedom" (created by wordpress) which its also a trap. They wont/cannot/dont want to use it, even when this freedom actually exists (mostly i see devs tuning wordpress sites as manainers of a frankenstein). Its a freedom that customers dont use, but also dont want to let it go. Its paradoxical man S:

Thanks! You hit the nail on the head. Thats my biggest pet peeve, WordPress Frankensteins.

In an ideal world, customers would let me build them a static site for the info/ brochure need, and code a purpose built application for their business logic / e-commerce needs. This whole idea of franken-plugin WordPress to do everything is just a nightmare.
