It’s no doubt that the popularity of WordPress has soared as of late, even surpassing giants such as Joomla and Drupal in general usage. A recent article from Smashing Magazine highlights some interesting points along WordPress’s climb to greatness, with some rather spot-on speculation for how WordPress has managed to surpass its assumed competition. Of course, there’s the obvious factor of WordPress’s ease of use and development that have propelled it forward significantly, but its focus on blogging is what has really set it apart. WordPress has certainly grown into a rather capable CMS, but it’s a blogging platform first and foremost, and you’ll be hard-pressed to find a single feature in WordPress that can’t be used by a general blogger. When you focus on a specific direction, you can use all of your creative talent and energy to build a solid product that does exactly what it’s supposed to […]

Blogging, WordPress

SchipulCon 2011, a web marketing conference, hosted a very thought-provoking discussion between WordPress founder Matt Mullenweg and Drupal founder Dries Buytaert.

You can see the video below, and there are some choice quotes available at Schipul’s coverage of the event.

In this instance, the world is Open-Source Content Management Systems. Water and Stone which is a digital agency has released their annual open source CMS market share survey for 2010. This survey was comprised of 5,000 participants with more than 2,800 completing the full questionnaire. The report contains a look at various metrics and trends for 20 different content management systems. While the results of the survey are not definitive, there are some interesting trends specifically with WordPress that I wanted to share. Water and Stone used Amazon.com to determine who has the largest number of books in print, which systems have been the subject of publishing activity in the last 12 months, and which systems are currently the subject of […]

For quite awhile now, I’ve been monitoring a specific blog post from May 15th, 2007 which is a tutorial on how to migrate from Drupal 5 to WordPress 2. Many things have changed since then between both pieces of software and thus, the scripts provided on the site will not work. Every now and then, someone publishes a comment that contains a link to an updated version of the script to work with newer versions of Drupal and WordPress. DovDox is the latest blog to publish an updated portion of the script albeit with a caveat. Taking my usual hacksaw-and-duct-tape approach, I simply deleted the portions that didn’t work. That means my version moved all of the posts and comments to the new blog, but didn’t preserve any of their categories. Drupal’s ridiculous “taxonomy” system just isn’t easy to map onto WordPress’s much more rational categories and tags, and in […]
