Projects / WordPress


WordPress is a state-of-the-art, semantic, personal publishing platform with a focus on aesthetics, Web standards, and usability. It was born out of a desire for an elegant, well-architected personal publishing system. While primarily geared towards functioning as a Weblog, WordPress is also a flexible CMS capable of managing many types of Web sites. In addition to the basic blog functions, it also has an integrated link manager, categories, tags, custom taxonomies, file attachments, XFN support, support for stand-alone pages, Atom and RSS feeds for both content and comments, blogging API support (Atom Publishing Protocol, Blogger, MetaWeblog, and Movable Type APIs), spam blocking features, advanced cruft-free URL generation, a flexible theme system, and an advanced plugin API.

            Wordpress 2.0 has some great Ajax features. Its got a lot of potential. TinyMCE still does some weird things to the code though.

            My dreams came true
            I was using the b2 engine for some minor things and got excited when I moved over to wordpress. This project sums up all things that matter to me: GPL, "beautiful" url-rewrite support, style. Best of all, it behaves incredible nice.

            (disclaimer: I do only the announcing stuff since /wordpress on was missing. I am not a member of the wordpress team nor did I contribute code. I wasn't paid for these words :) )
