From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Textpattern is an open source content management system originally developed by Dean Allen. While it is often listed among weblogging tools, its aim is to be a high-quality general-purpose CMS suitable for deployment in many contexts. Textpattern is written in PHP using a MySQL database backend, and is distributed under the GNU General Public License. The current stable version is Textpattern 4.0.4.


Textpattern grew out of the system used to publish Textism—the personal site of Dean Allen—and was made available to testers in alpha versions as early as 2001. The early alpha versions were followed by a series of beta releases which saw more widespread use, and which were themselves superseded by a series of "gamma" releases which expanded and refined Textpattern's capabilities. Originally some concern existed regarding licensing, but since the gamma version numbered 1.19 (released June 7, 2004), Textpattern has been distributed under the GNU GPL.

In addition to being the first GPL version of Textpattern, gamma 1.19 was the final gamma release; the next version, in September of 2004, was Release Candidate 1 for Textpattern 1.0. In a somewhat unorthodox move, Textpattern continued to accumulate features as the second, third, fourth and fifth release candidates were made public. During this time the official development team, originally consisting solely of Dean Allen, expanded to include several talented contributors from the nascent Textpattern community: with Release Candidate 3 Alex Shiels and Pedro Palazón joined the development team, and Sencer Yurdagül was brought into the fold as Textpattern's release manager with Release Candidate 4.

The fifth release candidate, however, included a notice that no new features would be added before the 1.0 release, and two weeks later, on August 14, 2005, the first officially stable version of Textpattern was released. Due to the extended development process—many of the previous releases, even before the 1.0 candidates, were widely considered stable and mature enough for production use—this release was named "Textpattern 4.0" rather than "Textpattern 1.0".


Textpattern offers a number of features and conveniences to users, site administrators and developers, including:

  • Ease of publishing using Textile, a text-to-HTML converter which permits users to publish content without learning HTML.
  • Preview of both the final "look" of content and of its XHTML.
  • Standards-compliant XHTML and CSS "out of the box", with all layout in the default setup handled via stylesheets.
  • A tag-based template system which allows the creation of reusable blocks of content and code, referred to as "forms", and a built-in "tag builder" to automate their creation.
  • A privilege-based user hierarchy, allowing for an organized structure of writers, editors and publishers to work easily in concert.
  • A commenting system, including several measures to combat spam.
  • Built-in site statistics, including referer tracking.
  • Syndication of site content via RSS and Atom.
  • A robust plugin architecture which allows the addition of features to any part of the system, including the administrative backend.
  • A built-in CSS editor.
  • An integrated link management system.
  • An integrated image management system which allows the association of images with particular pieces of content.
  • An integrated file management system which allows files to be offered for download.
  • Separation of content from presentation with a concept of "sections" defined for presentation and "categories" for content organization.
  • UTF-8 publishing and support for many languages, including English, French, Italian, German, Czech, Japanese, Estonian, Latvian, Dutch, Norwegian, Danish, Portuguese, Catalan, Polish, Slovenian, Indonesian, Swedish, Icelandic, Russian and Greek (including support for polytonic).

Unlike most other blogging software, Textpattern does not support Trackback or Pingback.
