Textpattern CMS support forum
OK this comes from a hosting company so we should take it with a pinch of salt but here you go:)
WordPress is great – we love it. But just as variety is the spice of life, so too must we have variety in our software choices. Textpattern is a popular WordPress alternative. One shouldn’t go whole hog, changing their entire history of blog posts from one application to another on a whim. Instead, try out some different options, see how the other half lives, consider Textpattern, try it, and see. Then decide.
On another but similar note: installatron.com/textpattern
Re: txp mentions
The extremely lightweight design of the TextPattern CMS makes it much faster and responsive than WordPress. You can also customize the admin user interface with custom designs to personalize the CMS to your preference as well.
TextPattern is also developer-friendly. Web designers and coders can build themes and blogs using the CMS to make their own creations with less effort. Thanks to its library of plugins, adding more functions is also quite easy.
