In modern web development, there is a big focus on using frameworks and other reusable code to build up web sites, rather than writing everything from scratch. Textpattern is one such framework, allowing it's users to build up standards-compliant professional web sites using PHP, MySQL, and CSS, with only a basic knowledge of the underlying technology. It's also open source, so free to use. It has become very popular, with tens of thousands of downloads to date, and is used on some high profile sites, such as that of Senator Ted Kennedy (tedkennedy.com) We are proud to present the first book dedicated to Textpattern development, written by 5 experts. It takes the reader right from the basics of the subject such as installation, right up to advanced subjects like writing plugins. It also includes case studies and reference sections.

Synopsis:

Textpattern is a powerful, PHP-based content management system that allows you to build pretty much any kind of data-driven website quickly and easily. It is very popular among designers and developers alike, and has an active community of users. Sound good? Well, you're in luck the book you're holding now shows you how to use every aspect of Textpattern to a professional standard. Textpattern (and this book) appeals to two main groups of people: Firstly, the web designer who has mastered the fundamentals of XHTML and CSS and wants to create sites that have fresh and dynamically changing information, but is not familiar with server-side coding and databases. Never fear Textpattern enables you to integrate your XHTML knowledge, inserting dynamic aspects into your already solid site design. Secondly, PHP developers who are looking for a content management system upon which to build additional functionality and want a hand with the design aspects of their site. Again, Textpattern fills in those holes. The book leaves no stone unturned. It starts by introducing you to Textpattern and guiding you through its very simple installation process.After the core features of the administrative interface are explored, the book dives into building sites with TXP, using CSS, articles, forms, pages, and more to create fully customized templates.

Development follows next, looking at installing plugins and building your own custom plugins to further enhance your Textpattern-based site. The book concludes with several case studies to provide ideas and inspiration, including a weblog, an e-commerce site, and an online review directory. In this book you will: * Learn to develop websites quickly using Textpattern's intuitive templating language. * Learn to use Textpattern to build e-commerce websites, including customer feedback and reviews. * Learn to use Textpattern and web standards to create blogs and community sites with dynamically driven content. * Learn how to integrate your own style of coding and design with a content management system that catalyses, rather than hinders, your creativity. * Learn how to use PHP to create Textpattern plugins, adding custom functionality and features to uniquely suit the needs of your website.

In 2005, started Godbit.com as a resource to help the church better understand how to utilize web standards, and blogs about design semi-regularly at his site SonSpring.com. He has been described by family and friends as mildly amusing, but is really quite dull. Jay Leiner is an avid technologist who enjoys discussing, writing, and debating technology. Jay has over 10 years of development experience, which ranges from the creation of OS X/Windows applications to web communities that use Textpattern as the content delivery engine. His passion remains grounded in web development technology such as Ruby on Rails, AJAX frameworks, and Textpattern. Jay's life work is web development and he is ecstatic that he gets paid to do something he loves. Today, he is focused on his company, Thin Slice, which specializes in quality design and development. Cody Lindley is a web producer for a technology company located in Boise, Idaho.
