Uh-oh, bugfix release: 1.2.1 solves the "blank page" problem in the Admin Area. Bonus: Dutch translation by Macmee - hartelijk bedankt! Get it here: flatpress.org/download

If you like opening each of your blog entries with a cover image, you might find franah's plugin "Entry Cover" quite useful: wiki.flatpress.org/res:plugins

The cool theme "FlatMistyLook", based on WP's famous "Misty Look", is responsive now and looks even better. Give it a try! wiki.flatpress.org/res:themes:

@jason123santa That's a pity, you might have liked FlatPress :)
(In fact, cPanel has FlatPress in its Softacolous one-click installer.)

@jason123santa "like Wordpress" - ya, kind of, see the FAQ: wiki.flatpress.org/doc:faq#is_ ;)

You can get it running quickly on any *AMP stack, e.g. XAMPP does the trick.

Running on PHP but without SQL makes it super easy to operate at any shared hosting provider, which is perfect for our main target users with their private and small business sites. (If you need multi-user engine with redactional workflows, you'd better use a system from the Wordpress league.)

@jason123santa It's not static ;) More in detail: FlatPress does not generate static HTML you upload to your server. Instead, it's a web CMS, i.e. a PHP application on your server. Running on flat files instead of a database increases performance and simplifies system requirements, installation, backup and maintenance. (Wordpressers may doubt that :P)

🀨 "Isn't this just another blog engine?"
😍 "Nope. In fact, it's 15 years full of effort with all our heart and soul."

✨ Happy 15th birthday, ! ✨
