WordPress 九岁拉!

2003年5年28日(北京时间),WordPress创始人 Matt Mullenweg(马特·穆伦维格)发布了WordPress第一个可用版本。

第一个WordPress版本:0.71-gold,并且发布了WordPress功能特征:

  • Texturize — So good it’ll make your quotes curl.
  • WordPress Links — A link manager with everything you’d expect, from Weblogs.com support to a handy bookmarklet. Manage as many blogrolls as you like, and have complete control over their display.
  • XHTML 1.1 — WordPress is complaint with XHTML standards up to 1.1, though by default it sends a 1.0 document type to avoid compatibility issues.
  • Highly Intelligent Line Breaks — Occasionally called “nl2br on steroids,” this brand new function adds line breaks except where there is already a block level tag or another line break.
  • New Administration Interface — We’ve made it as simple as possible, and no more. Everything has been restructured from the ground up in a fully compliant XHTML/CSS interface.
  • Manual Excerpts — This allows you to handcraft summaries of your posts to appear in your RSS feed and other places.
  • New Default Templates — Again we’ve streamlined theses with the latest in simple, easy-to-understand standard XHTML and CSS. And not a CSS hack in sight.
  • Plus numerous behind the scenes code cleanups, making this release faster and more stable than ever.

九年过去了,WordPress已经成为主流的网站发布系统平台,并在全球有超过2.5亿用户的使用量,官方插件19601个,下载:306,106,176次;主题:1514个,下载:49,066,756(截止到北京时间2012年5月28日统计结果);WordPress也有单一的英文语言版本,发展成多国语言版本。
