Don’t take our word for it: this is what others are saying about Textpattern:
I tried WordPress, Mambo, Joomla!, Nucleus, PHP-Nuke and XOOPS, but no matter what, I have to say that Textpattern is the best
Someone on a newsgroup mentioned TXP. I said "WTF? Never heard of it", I came here, installed it, worked ever since and loved every minute of it.
I've never needed to do something that it couldn't do and it definitely has the friendliest community I've ever come across.
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...
Textpattern's clean, organised admin is the best I've seen, and clients love that approach.
"Elegant simplicity." It is intuitive and the learning curve is not too steep. Plus, you cannot beat the price!
