It requires no database, no special PHP extensions, and no particular Web server configuration. All data is stored in text files and the file access module can be easily configured to work when PHP's safe mode is enabled. Its features include support for themes, plugins, TrackBack, Pingback, Podcasting, and the Blogger and MetaWeblog APIs. It supports multiple users, multiple blogs, file uploads, permanent articles, and RSS feeds for entries, topics, and comments. It also comes with a number of standard plugins for managing comment and TrackBack spam.

            Broken in what way? The Google search plugin just submits a search request for Google to search under the URL of the current blog. If the problem is that you are not getting any results, then it's probably just because Google hasn't spidered your blog yet.

            Thanks for this fast flexible cms
            I have search a long time for a weblog with all browser editing (not wysiwyg, but lynx). Here is it :-). Small package and no database required!!!!

            RSS, static pages and SEO Links are so funny.
