Textpattern vs WordPress Based on the Real Using Experience

Textpattern falls behind WordPress when it comes to comparing the performance of both of these programs.

The above line is from Textpattern vs WordPress Based on the Real Using Experience.

The person doing the article is named Susan Rosie, she’s obviously never installed Textpattern.

Her site PHPMatters runs Wordpress, I guess PHP doesn’t much matter to her ;)

Hey Bert – she was also a spammer on this site, too – I remember deleting her posts with backlinks.

The whole site is an affiliate marketing kit for web hosting referrals.

That’s what I gathered also, cheap way to make money, lie about sh*t.

Web hosting referral bounties are sizeable. Couple that with Wordpress powering >25% of websites and people wanting hosting as cheaply as possible, there’s a reason why they push Bluehost so hard.

I have the burden of knowledge from affiliate marketing. Done it since 2006. It’s a murky world if you’re not careful.

Re: Textpattern vs WordPress Based on the Real Using Experience

However, the users of Textpattern find it difficult to use the software. Therefore, all the beginners are recommended to use WordPress due to its little learning curve of the learning for the basics of blogging and writing.

That barely sounds like English.

Of course, by answering Bert, we’re all validating the link back to her website, so she’s still winning.

Re: Textpattern vs WordPress Based on the Real Using Experience

Did anyone do any benchmarks with vanilla installs of the latest txp and wp versions?

ie.

  • RAM usage
  • speed
  • footprint
  • known vulnerabilities
  • etc
