Don’t take our word for it: this is what others are saying about Textpattern:
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.
I can't think of a problem I haven't been able to tackle with either TXP's built in features or a plugin.
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.
I love the simplicity, speed and extensibility; clients love the ease of use and transparency in content editing. In a phrase - it just works.
TXP appeals 'cos it is so flexible... it is hard to beat as an all-rounder.
