Getting off the ground

Hello, world.

The moment we’ve all been waiting for: the WordPress Foundation is now public. As they say, slow cookin’ makes good eatin’.

We finally have all our ducks in a row, proper tax status, and the beginnings of a non-profit mission to work toward.

So, welcome! Please have a look around the site to learn a bit about what this first iteration is going to set out to do. If you have any questions, please leave them in the comments and I’ll do my best to answer them — but read all the pages on the site first. :)

    Congratulations! I’ve used WordPress for almost a year now and it’s been a blast. I migrated to WP after working with Dot Net Nuke for years. DNN is good but compared to WP, it’s slow and cumbersome. And I also love just how easy it is to add plug-ins and widgets. Excellent work!

    Best of luck!

    Congratulations. Brilliant move and a sign of WordPress’ maturity as a platform and transformational technology.

  9. WordPress is a fantastic platform. As a recent convert I am pleased to see the many many diverse ways that it can be employed. My WordPress site has transformed the way I view websites and what Design Credo suggests to its customers.

    A genuine good luck.

    I hope we see more non-profits like this.

    You can all be immensely proud of what WP has done for the world!! Very few bits have software had this kind of impact.

    The sad thing is that your lives must be so hard trying to keep ahead of the hackers that know if they can exploit WP, their installed base is so massive – you do a great job and don’t let them get you down.

    I’m a Freelance Web Designer and I work exclusively with WordPress. I mean, why bother with anything else? It’s the most powerful, easy to configure, CMS with so many awesome Widgets and Plug-Ins that you’d be silly not to use it. Thanks for all the hard work!

    good luck.

    Congratulations on the foundation. I attended my first wordcamp in Philly about a month ago. It’s something I highly recommend to anyone who had never attended one.
