Got my copy of Textpattern Solutions today

It just came in the post 20 mins ago.

It looks great, I look forward to reading it. Thank you Kevin, Robert, Nathan, Mary and Cody for all your hard work. And to Alex, Wet, Mary (again) and Ruud for keeping development of this great CMS going. It’s great to see how busy SVN has been recently.

I’ve been playing around with other content management systems again recently and they always make me realise how much I love Textpattern and the way it does things.

Re: Got my copy of Textpattern Solutions today

I haven’t gotten my copy yet, and I wrote part of it! LOL (Not surprising, it has to come to Canada from the States, and I know Kevin got his on the 17th).

Once you’ve read it, please rate/review it. :)

Re: Got my copy of Textpattern Solutions today

Will do :-)

Mini-review so far – It’s great!

I was considering cancelling my preorder several times as I thought I already had a good enough knowledge of Textpattern but I’m glad I didn’t. This book gives a very comprehensive look at the system with some excellent examples and case studies. This is the user manual I’d recommend to anyone using Textpattern (beginner or pro).

Re: Got my copy of Textpattern Solutions today

I think that’s possible. I’m 1/3 of the way through and going away for the weekend. But I’ll try to write one when I’m back and have read the whole thing.

I would be great if Textpattern.com had a graphic and link to the book on the homepage. Good for inspiring confidence in Textpattern.

Re: Got my copy of Textpattern Solutions today

Thanks for that Jakob – I went to friends of ed and bought the e-book – will take a look at it tomorrow! From the little I have seen so far, looks like a great TXP addition!
