Textpattern is my Content Management System of choice — it orchestrates your content (text & imagery) on the web server.

Think WordPress, but nimbler and more secure.

Out of the box, TXP has many nifty features including Textile formatting, a markup engine which allows you to express yourself without having to bother with HTML tags.

If default functionality doesn’t cut it, TXP is massively extendible using a wide range of 3rd-party ‘plug-ins’.

Included with every all-sorts website is server-side automatic image-resizing and cropping. We upload high resolution master images to the server, and then reference them as we see fit in each web-page — the system scales and crops each image to a smaller size automatically. This keeps page sizes down (faster page loads) and helps with website image management.
