ProcessWire on the web

Recommended Posts

It is always interesting to find where processwire is mentioned, so this is the topic to post links to articles, blog posts, discussions, tweets etc which are about or related to ProcessWire.

I started with this one, which is well written article about some basic differences between WP and PW: http://www.globi.ca/articles/articles/processwire_vs_wordpress/

Great thread. Beyond the PR text we've written and submitted to other sites, I haven't seen a lot written about PW. Most of our buzz pops up in forum threads about other CMSs, comments to blog posts about other CMSs, and on Twitter. This is all great of course. But when someone searches on Google for independent articles on ProcessWire, the majority of results are just our press releases on other sites. Here are a few articles I'm aware of about PW:

Marc Carson has written some great things about PW on his site, like this and this and this.

Clinton Skakun has written a lot of good PW articles. Like this one and several others. Though there may be occasional statements I don't think are 100% correct, but really like the effort and enthusiasm he's putting into writing about PW.

There are some nice ProcessWire reviews on alternativeto.net

I think that's the first installation I've seen using the new Blog profile. Good to see.

I agree with that guy's generalisations - frameworks are always bad. I hate saving tonnes of time and love reinventing the wheel on a daily basis because I have nothing better to do and love watching the years fly by.

Actually, that's not a review--that's our marketing copy. Looks like they copied and pasted it from these two pages:

http://processwire.com/about/what/

http://processwire.com/about/why/

We allow this usage with our press releases, but not with our site copy. The ProcessWire site copy is not open source, so whoever posted this should have asked for permission before doing so.

Oops, sorry. And I thought someone had a really deep understanding of processwire.

Maybe I should remove the links, so they doesn't get backlinks from here?

Good idea -- hope you don't mind but I went ahead and removed it myself. :) I'm glad you posted this though, I didn't realize another site was cloning our content like that, so it's good to know about.

Today the german "Webkrauts" published an article by Michael van Laar about PW in their advent calendar:

http://webkrauts.de/...012/processwire

I think by tomorrow the new revision of a german podcast called "Working Draft" will be published where I talked over 20 minutes about PW. And here it is: http://workingdraft.de/99/

[everything in german, sorry]

Keep us posted on this. I'm trying to learn German, maybe I will give it a go :)

      Hi,
      it seems to me there are some PW-users in Germany, but is there a community site in progress? I am using ExpressionEngine for 5 years now. I did several client projects but had difficulties to "sell" EE to clients. ProcessWire could be my next main-CMS. At the moment I rebuild some of my old sites with ProcessWire. Yesterday I talked to a web agency about PW. They said "Well, PW seems to be great but it's unknown in Germany. We do have work for WordPress, Contao or Joomla." I showed them http://webkrauts.de/artikel/2012/processwire but their reaction was like "Ok, nice. But can you do the next project with Contao or WordPress? Because our clients heard about these CMS before."
      ExpressionEngine has similiar problems in Germany, but costs money. I worked on a german Community-site für ExpressionEngine, but then EllisLab changed their pricing structure and philosophy. So I'm leaving EE and there will probably never a german EE-site. But what's about a german Community site? Is anybody working on this or would like to participate?
