Re: [mention] Wordpress < > Textpattern

There’s even a Textpattern fork, http://xpattern.net/, that came about as a result of the initial leadership changes.

Not to be too picky, but xpattern was started in 2008 which was quite a while after Dean left so I wouldn’t characterize that as “initial.”

Another chapter :)

I guess she is not fully informed regarding the txp v wp security vulnerabilities when she offers both platforms a 5* rating for security.

From the footer:

It’s link bait, and it’s worked.

[Edit] Cynicism aside, she’s right: Wordpress is a better blogging platform for most people. That Wordpress-centric, Wordpress-powered, Bluehost-affiliated site is always going to come to that conclusion.

I am always amused when I see ‘Wordpress’ and ‘lightweight’ mentioned in the same sentence. Honestly, whenever I work with client Wordpress installs I feel like I’m going into battle with all the plugins I have to add.

That was absolutely the funniest part. Wordpress is lightweight if you compare it to TYPO3 but compared to Textpattern it isn’t even a consideration.

I have sites running both because they excel at different things. But that was a pretty lame comparison.

Re: [mention] Wordpress < > Textpattern

After all, WordPress has a larger user groups, countless themes & plugins, and ease of use, which Textpattern sucks.

In addition, with the lightweight framework, WordPress has better performance with faster speed and more reliable uptime than Textpattern

Fair and balanced reviews such as this one are so few and far between. ;P

I appreciated learning that WordPress has more reliable uptime than Textpattern CMS. Silly me. All this time I thought that was a function of servers and such :D
