Apparently an alternative to WordPress. Hmmm… really ? Just installed it (easy enough, though like MT it asks for server paths) and it’s ugly.
It does say on it’s site page that “Note that current versions presuppose existing site design skills: there is nothing plug-and-play about Textpattern, yet.” and they are certainly not kidding, but then they ‘sell’ the idea of TP being a Content Management System as opposed to a blogging tool – which WP is. (Speaking of WP, it seems that 1.2 final will be released damn soon.) Still, I’ll play around with TP for a while … only out of interest though – I’ll not use it for anything proper.
It’s not free you see. I’m not going to get into the MT situation, but I did like this post.

Right, time to populate some db’s !
