Messing Around with WordPress

wordpress-logo-circle.jpg Yeah, I know: why bother? Still, I can imagine loads of instances where the client/friend/member-of-your-family just requires a simple site where they can add content on their own. In any case, it's open source, uses PHP and mySQL, etc. So, in a sense, it's family.

Anyway, I went through the "Famous 5-Minute Installation". It worked about as smoothly as a Drupal Install. No problems setting it up. The message at the end about expecting more steps and 'sorry to disappoint' was kind of cute. On the other hand, simply installing the thing is still a long way from actually putting something together that approaches a final product even for a simpler site.
