It took me a little longer than I had expected but as promised, here is my review of Textpattern Solutions. It was written by Kevin Potts, Robert Sable and Nathan Smith along with Mary Fredborg and Cody Lindley and is the first official book written about Textpattern, a powerful PHP-based Open Source CMS.
Despite using TXP since I started this website I knew there was still a lot for me to learn and also a few things that could be improved with the way I setup this site. Needless to say when I got wind of this book there was no doubt in my mind that it would help me to be a better TXP user.
The book is well-written and takes you through every aspect of TXP. Everything and I mean everything about TXP is covered in this book. You’ll learn the ins and outs of installation, navigating and accomplishing various tasks in the administrative interface, go through the process of building a complete site covering articles, forms and pages, and even learn how to build you’re own plugins. There are also 3 case studies that help to further demonstrate just how flexible TXP can be. What more could you ask for?
This book was a great read and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is new to TXP, thinking about using it or who currently uses it and would like to learn more about this wonderful CMS.
