I just installed WP on my server and I am very imressed! I have tried in vain over the last few years to find a blogging solution that was user-friendly and easily extendable, and never really found anything I liked. DasBlog came close but still had issues. WordPress seems perfect! I am still learning how to use it (uploading and managing photos seems to be something I haven't quite figued out) - but the user community seems very helpful so I am sure I'll find my answers.
My thanks to all involved who brought this into existence!
