Textpattern – a promising CMS sprouts its wings

In: Web development

25 Feb 2004

Textpattern, a content management system written in PHP by Dean Allen (of Textism and Textile fame), has just been released to the public.

Curiousity piqued by what it promised to offer about a year ago (when it was in closed development), I made it a point to check out Textpattern once any release is made. I took a quick install and run through of Textpattern gamma 1.11 and am pleased to report that it delivers on its promises. This has the makings of the next big weblog publishing tool (bigger than MT?), or even the next big CMS. More on this after I play around with it a bit more.

I saw that a while back, their front page is a little to basic so I thought of it as something really basic…

bq. Textpattern gamma 1.0 has opened in selected cities.

Sigh. Shame my city hasn’t been selected. The features from looking at the screenshots look brilliantly amazing.

Textpattern’s Out!
[Textpattern] Looks like a very cool weblogging system. Let’s see if it can beat WordPress. Time to kill five hours! Stolen from redemption in a blog.
