Don’t take our word for it: this is what others are saying about Textpattern:
Only one person... said he preferred the way of blogging that he had with WP. But once he started using TXP, he changed his mind.
Textpattern's clean, organised admin is the best I've seen, and clients love that approach.
TXP appeals 'cos it is so flexible... it is hard to beat as an all-rounder.
I would be remiss if I did not mention the agile and responsive development community behind Textpattern, which has consistently provided legendary guidance and support...
I tried WordPress, Mambo, Joomla!, Nucleus, PHP-Nuke and XOOPS, but no matter what, I have to say that Textpattern is the best
I've never needed to do something that it couldn't do and it definitely has the friendliest community I've ever come across.
