Textpattern CMS is a free open source content management system written in PHP as a programming language and using a MySQL database. It was originally developed by Dean Allen and first released in 2003. While Textpattern CMS is mostly seen as a weblogging tool, it has the features of a content management system and is suitable for deployment in many contexts. Some examples of Textpattern CMS featuresinclude a tag based template system, a privilege-based user hierarchy, built-in site statistics and a robust plugin architecture that allows current features to be expanded.
As a CMS Textpattern offers options for all types of users from designers and developers to site administrators and end users.
