WordPress: Best Open Source Social Networking CMSBy JP Habaradas on October 30, 2007 @jaypee
Packt is pleased to reveal that WordPress is the first winner of the 2007 Open Source CMS Award, picking up the best Open Source Social Networking Content Management System. In a very close category, WordPress came out in front of Elgg and Drupal, who finished joint second.
Packt [packed], a publishing company that produces cutting-edge books for communities, developers, administrators and newbies started the Packt Open Source Content Management System Awards in 2006 as a way to encourage, support and recognize Open Source Content Management Systems. This year, aside from increasing the prize money they’ve also added several new categories including the award that WordPress won.
In what is one of the new categories for 2007, the Open Source Social Networking CMS Award was designed to recognise Content Management Systems that promoted the collaboration and distribution of information and development of communities. The Judges commented on WordPress’s ease of configuration, professional approach, usability and enthusiastic community.
Congratulations to Matt Mullenweg and the rest of the guys at Automattic! Of course this won’t be possible without the programmers, plugin authors, theme designers for their respective contributions to the development of WordPress and the rest of the community who have been supporting WordPress through the years.
