Why Does 901am Use WordPress?
We all love 901am for the content, but ever wonder about the software that powers this site, and why we use WordPress instead of Moveable Type? Here’s why:
Setup and Installation
WordPress is much easier to install. The only part where you have to any work is setting up the MySQL database.
Speed and Efficiency
WordPress generates pages dynamically, which allows flexibility in both design as well as maintenance.
While the default installations of both systems are quite powerful, tweaking Moveable Type can be quite a pain, while themes for WordPress can offer a reprieve. Especially when you get Pearsonified.
Wordpress is free.
