Textpattern 2 months on

29 Aug 2004

Two months after migrating to Textpattern, I thought I’d go over some of my thoughts since then. In particular, I’ve heard some people mention that they might migrate too, because it was ‘good enough for me’. So that no one blames for me for a move that they then regret, I’ll be honest about my Textpattern experience.

First of all, the things I’ve loved about using TXP so far:

Its not all sunshine and tweety birds though, and there are few things that niggle me.

Please don’t take this as a ‘woe is Textpattern’ statement, its far from it. – more of a report of my experience so far. Whether features like XML-RPC support will be added in the future or not is hard to say. Dean is a busy man who needs to earn a living (which doesn’t come from TXP!), and communications from him on where Textpattern is going is scant.

Update 20.9.04: Metaweblog support is going to be added in the near future, and a clearer vision of Textpattern’s future is emerging. I had a brief dalliance with Wordpress again – and confirmed my belief that it so isn’t the right tool for me. MT 3.1 looked improved, but Textpattern is most definitely where its still at for me.
