    Best Blogging software

    Yo,

    What is your favorite blogging software, such as xblog, Movable Type etc.

    Thanks.

    Personally, i have never been overly interested in blogging, though, you could definetely write your own software pretty easily. The whole concept is extremely simple. Just a basic database insert/edit/delete.

    Jona's (Or was it Dan T?) blog is pretty nice

    There's a tutorial by Matt Wade that shows you step by step how to create a php/mysql blog with comments.

    otherwise, I 'kinda' like Movable Type because of its adminstration panel--it looks really pretty

    anyways, good luck mate with finding your blog software /or/ creating a custom one in whichever scripting language!

    Though it may be lacking in several (or many) areas, and may not be as good as xBlog Lite or Movable Type, I prefer to write my own. It gives me a warm, fuzzy feeling.
    Thousand different paths
    So many sterile ends
    I chose the Devil's path

    Never shall the sun kiss my face
    And caress me with it's burning light
    For I dwell in the shadows
    And sleep side by side with death

    WordPress and TextPattern are both reasonably popular and free. I've heard quite a few good things about both.

    I'm using an ollddd cgi called Coranto.

    ex. Nick's Plaid Shirt (My Band's Site)
    Coranto

    my friend uses Moveable Type, he said it was hard to configure for him (I'm not sure how good he is at that kind of stuff though), but he likes it (used to use coranto).

    ex. Aeonion.net(My Friend's Anime Wallpaper site)

    I think it's just a matter of time, but WP is going to become the best blogging tool, if it isn't already and many would say it is. There's just too many well known web design/developers jumping on the bandwagon for it not to be a major player. Being free and letting people tweak the code helps. Blogger will probably always be bigger just based on number of users, but WP is for anybody wanting to do serious blogging. Case in point, former MT users mention it is easier to install and convert a MT blog over to WP than it is to upgrade from one version of MT to the next.

    Beyond WP, code your own.

    My friend is coding an open source blogging script in php/mysql with a template system and more. I took a look at it and I was impressed.

    It's in version 0.1 right now though Hehe.

    I took a look at WordPress and WOW. I was really impressed at the interface design for the admin panel--that's some top quality stuff.
