We make no secret that we are in love with pMachine‘s content management system, Expression Engine. We use it to run this site! When I started using it 2 years ago, I was coming out of a bumpy relationship with a big-name blogging platform. It has a its merit — the latest versions are snazzy! I still value and recommend it; it’s great software. But, the spark between EE and me was immediate and undeniable. Publishing was instantaneous, spam was captcha’d, I didn’t have to be a savant to understand it and baby, I was head over heels.
Since then, my affection for EE has only grown. What was once foreign and exciting has become, to an extent, comfortable and familiar. And just when I think I know as much as a girl can know, they surprise me. They added a built-in gallery module, created a separate discussion forum module and best of all, they listen to their users requests when building new releases. It’s so flexible, I’m often amazed at what can be accomplished with it.
My only real gripe was with finding things in the documentation. Guess what? They took care of that, too. And this, ladies and gents, is why we love them. Check out some of the quick-reference links you can now find in the Expression Engine User Guide. If you’re new to EE or simply want to learn more, take a look around. Soon, you’ll have stars in your eyes, too.
You can also find these links, along with other helpful sites in our Resources section. Enjoy!
