With the explosion of corporate and personal Blogs
and Vlogs on the internet has followed a huge number of blogging
software aimed at ease-of-use, simple interface design and low-tech
content creation bringing web publishing to the hands of the everyday
Content Management systems (CMS), unlike most simple blogging
tools, are aimed at creating a central store of data (files,
text copy, images, categories etc) which are served up dynamically
as site pages are requested, thus removing the need for hard-coded
pages, navigation systems, and content. CMS systems have always
had a grip on the corporate world, but their price and complexity
have left them out of reach for most users.
come out on top of the new Web 2.0 applications that marry these
two concepts - ease of use, flexibility, and database
driven dynamic content. Like
most of the best new applications of the last few years Textpattern
is a free, open source application distributed under the GPL with
users around the world (including RedShoe Technologies) contributing
plug-ins, templates and modified code.
In these pages you'll find the plug-ins and updates we have
begun to write for our own textpattern based
sites. Feel free to use them as you wish.
