My first love

I’m back to using Textpattern, which by the way is the best content management system ever! I’ve been trying to use everything from Wordpress, Mephisto to Symphony, all of which are freat in their own right, but not quite like Textpattern. Maybe it’s just because I’ve been using it for so long, but it has everything I could ever need.

The basic downer for me on all systems was the themes/templates system, not only was it a bit hard to understand at first, but I’d dare say, pretty annoying. Here in Textpattern you don’t need to know anything else besides html, the tags can be generated, which is a nice addition as well. I noticed in Symphony you could have a default template which had the header, navigation and footer to be displayed on all pages so you could just add the content on other pages without the need to add the header, etc again. I’m not being able to explain this properly, but I think you know what I mean. This can be done using custom forms in Textpattern as well.

I’ll re-do the photoblog section and add it soon. Till then, cya!
