This means the Word Press repository at Sourceforge kept growing and with the growth came new features such as changes to the administration panel, improvements to the installation process, Mike’s b2links hack, and Word Press’ branding.
Mike and Matt were especially keen on creating an easy installation process that Word Press is famous for.
Oh yeah, Matt was blogging actively at the age of eighteen, and this is what he said in a blog spot, The Blogging Software Dilemma, that marked the birth of Word Press ten years ago: I’ve decided that this the course of action I’d like to go in, now all I need is a name. Well, it would be nice to have the flexibility of Movable Type, the parsing of Text Pattern, the hackability of b2, and the ease of setup of Blogger.
I contacted Matt Mullenweg over email but I guess he is really busy, or he just gets a bazillion emails everyday, so I’m not complaining because I never got a reply. But this is the story of one dedicated man and how his vision transformed the world of web publishing forever.
The support forums were growing in popularity by the day.
From here, Matt focused on standardizing the code and HTML semantics.On the homepage, there was this tagline: This was Matt’s vision and soon enough, Word became an ever-growing Word Press community.The website made it easier for users to get involved.I’m sure there are one or two others in the community who would be too.Perhaps a post to the B2 forum, suggesting a fork would be a good starting point.
