When it comes to publishing on the internet, beginners and experts alike are met with a bothersome paradox: word processors and graphics applications allow anyone to do a pretty good job of managing text and images on a personal computer, but to make these available to the worldwide web - a seemingly similar environment of documents and destinations - ease of use vanishes behind sudden requirements for multilingual programming skills, proficiency in computer-based graphic design, and, ultimately, the patience of a saint. Those who soldier on anyway may find themselves further held back by the web's purported inflexibility with written language, with its reluctance to cope with all but the plainest of text, or by the unpredictable results brought about by using "WYSIWYG" web editors. Textpattern is a web application designed to help overcome these and other hurdles to publishing online, and to simplify the production of well-structured, standards-compliant web pages.

  • Sure a few bug fixes here and there, but this little gem is pretty much dead. Its a cms thats largely been carried for years now purely by plugin developers. The stable branch 4.0.x has offered absolutely nothing new in years, while the supposed development branch 4.1 is pretty much just vaporware. The ex-lead developer 'zem'/alex shiels decided to abandon the project and has gone to work for the even less impressive Wordpress. I guess he just had to be shown where the money was..

  • (I am not a techie, I know HTML and CSS,but no coding skills at all are need to use it.) I installed txp in 5 minutes; intuitive to work with (after reading about forms, sections and page templates); very flexible with lots of easy-to-install plugins available; uses clean CSS, HTML and the custom tags are intuitive; patchy documentation but community forum support is excellent; makes blogging a joy (much better than Blogger etc); secure multiauthor contributions built-in, eg use as a company CMS
