Yesterday Txema Campillo warned me of a project in which he was doing Open Source clone of the website of the Senate of Spain which has recently been renewed by the moderator price of half a million euros.
The best thing of all is that the project of the web clone was made entirely with open source software, WordPress and, what is better, with cost ZERO .
In the presentation uploaded to Scribd the technologies used are explained, namely …
In the end, it offers us some free servers where it has uploaded several versions of this clone web that, as it explains, and although is not really zero cost because all work must have its compensation, of course never reach the costs that have been paid for the official website, it would be promoting free software and above would have improvements that the web does not have Current
Government websites created s with free software which shows that the issue of security (often referred to) is not a problem:
Finally, here is a link to the presentation of the project, which you also have online in Scribd .
There are many ways to know if a web is created with WordPress . The simplest thing would be if somewhere recognized the software – free and Open Source – that facilitated the creation of the web, but as this is not common there are other ways to know if a site was created with WordPress, something harder and harder every day. Guess.
And is that WordPress is the king of CMS and many digital newspapers, blogs, portals and websites of all kinds already use WordPress, but do not always recognize that they are created with this wonderful software , to know the reason.
Let's see some ways to detect if a web was created with WordPress and you'll see that it's simpler than it looks:
And, nothing, if I have passed some method you tell us in the comments and add it 😉
Today the news that the blogging platform (spaces as
call they called) Posterous has been acquired by Twitter . Well, actually they have said they are joining but you already know how these things are.
Well, if you have been orphaned of blog in Posterous again , I encourage you to bet on an Open Source platform, such as WordPress which will always be available, always, where you can continue sharing your concerns, photos, quotes, links and publications.  Also, you can pass from Posterous to WordPress in a very simple way, so you do not lose anything …
The first thing is to open an account in WordPress.com or install a WordPress in your own server, and create a blog, to your liking, once there the steps to follow are the following 3:
I'm not happy about the purchase of Posterous because it was a platform very solvent but here I am to give options, and the best I honestly believe is Wo rdPress and as you see it is very easy to import to not lose anything.
Under this suggestive headline Gareth Case exposes in addition to its history of web tools (Frontpage, Dreamweaver, iWeb, etc), how to date official repository of themes and plugins of WordPress can be considered, without a doubt, as the App Store for web developers .
With almost 17 thousand plugins and almost 1,500 themes the WordPress repository is a great opportunity for any web developer to get known, even to start selling themes online from within the WordPress desktop without going any further.
Personally I think it's a good reflection, and a line in which the Automattic team could consider moving forward to give a different approach to this great web development promotion platform, in addition to Open Source code, do not you think?
Again WordPress has been placed above applications like Drupal or Diaspora, being chosen the best free web application in The Critters .
The entry WordPress best Open web application Source 2011 in The Critters published it first Fernando Tellado in Ayuda WordPress . Do not copy content, do not say anything good about you to your readers.

According to a recent study conducted with BlindElephant a tool of Qualys, to determine the vulnerability of the most popular Open Source software, WordPress resulted in these analyzes the CMS with the least critical vulnerabilities
In the study, in addition to finding that, although they scare the figures a bit, Open Source software is no more insecure than proprietary software despite not having technical equipment dedicated to keeping them for "his clients", the difference that marks WordPress was evident, do we see it?
The tool, of all the analyzed sites, found vulnerabilities in the …
WordPress only showed a 4% of critical vulnerabilities and a 21.5% of average vulnerabilities
It has also been clear in the study that the vulnerabilities found in WordPress affected the old versions, the current ones being the safest and stables. So you already know to update WordPress!
WP Bundle is a pack of WordPress themes that, for $ 80, will offer 10 "core" themes with a huge number of features. The project, still in progress, promises really interesting topics so it can be seen in the captures of them.
A peculiarity is that the themes will be Open Source, so you can modify and improve them to your liking once acquired. It is an interesting project, of which we must be aware …
In order to guarantee the survival and promotion of the open source community and WordPress, to democratize the publication of content on the web, the WordPress Foundation is born today
. profit whose main objective is to ensure that WordPress, WordCamp remain stable platforms for publication for future generations.
