TXP:CMS growing rapidly

I gave Bert the txpcms domains because textpattern “won the domain name vote”, so to speak. And Bert’s been busy. He’s taken Textpattern, added Bootstrap and quickly made mobile-friendly themes, using them on the sites below.

TXP:CMS links to four sites in the TXP family.

TXP:Themes has a blog and some themes as proof of concept. Includes official TXP themes.

TXP:Tags is a mobile-friendly Tag reference.

TXP:Planet has up-to-date news feeds from several TXP sites.

We Love TXP has also undergone the new theme treatment and is now up-to-date again with some newly added Textpattern sites.

There’s also txpcms.net and txpcms.org and probably others I haven’t discovered yet.

Besides linking to some useful resources, I’m posting here because I think Bert deserves some thanks and appreciation for his energy and enthusiasm, spreading the word about Textpattern and making TXP more user-friendly. Thanks, Bert!

Re: TXP:CMS growing rapidly

Is that a fork of Textpattern Bert is working on? He said that he’s made his last post on the forums

Re: TXP:CMS growing rapidly

Yes, Bert’s very passionate about Textpattern so he’s forking it. It’s going to be interesting!

Re: TXP:CMS growing rapidly

So is he promoting Textpattern or his fork of Textpattern?

Re: TXP:CMS growing rapidly

Is it really a fork of Textpattern proper or more of a repackaging of Textpattern – alternate name, website(s), plus additional templates, themes, etc.?

Re: TXP:CMS growing rapidly

Am I the only one who thinks that creating a new CMS with a name and an icon (hammer/chisel) that is very confusing to users of the real TXP. I don’t see any code for a fork yet.

Re: TXP:CMS growing rapidly

It doesn’t seem to be a fork, rather a repackaging as @maverick says. I’m not sure what the intention is, but certainly if he is looking to create a new CMS it shouldn’t be with the TXP branding i.e with the hammer/chisel as that would be confusing to say the least.

Ruud, you are mentioned here in case you hadn’t seen.

Re: TXP:CMS growing rapidly

Bert says it’s a fork and he’s planning code changes but it’s also a repackaging and a re-presentation. If you click on the TXP logos they take you to textpattern.com. He told me he loves Bootstrap and has a stack of themes coming. So, as I see it, new users with few technical skills will have more themes to choose from. Seems the forum don’t want that audience, but Bert does.

Re: TXP:CMS growing rapidly

It looks like someone needs to catch attention and wants to sow confusion, with the help of others.

Re: TXP:CMS growing rapidly

I am not trying to sow confusion or help anyone to do it. If Bert wants to put his energies into a CMS more attractive to a certain audience, then I think we should encourage him. More people will be using Textpattern. It’s all good when the heart is in the right place.
