Each has its benefits but the whole Dynamic Views system is incompatible with many things I would like to do with my blog – examples include embedding Storify stories (the embeds don’t work in dynamic views); jump breaks (to show only the beginning of a story with a species transition point); and much more.

I agree your comment
