h1. What kind of websites does Textpattern do best? [todo]
We receive many questions about Textpattern’s strengths and limitations. Textpattern is best suited for websites that require several - though not necessarily all - of the following features:
- News or Weblog-style chronological articles, perhaps organized into several distinct departments or sections.
- Groups of articles organized by other means, like a FAQ, product catalogue or portfolio.
- Single “static” pages, like an About or Contact page.
- Images; either attached to articles (as in a photoblog), or displayed in a gallery.
- File downloads.
- Structure, presentation and content maintained separately.
- Articles written by authors who don’t necessarily know HTML.
In other words, Textpattern is well suited for:
- News, magazine, tutorial and review sites
- Weblogs and photoblogs
- websites for businesses and non-profit organizations
- Online product catalogues
- Portfolio and professional sites
- Simple portals and file download sites
…or any website that includes several of those characteristics.
You’ll find many fine examples of Textpattern sites
