Version 1.0

WordPress 1.0 was released January 3, 2004. Named for Miles Davis.


With the 1.0 release WordPress added features to match the best tool in the market at that time, which was Movable Type. A fairly ambitious release schedule during the holidays meant that 1.0 had a few significant bugs that weren’t caught in testing.


  • Search engine friendly permalinks (using mod_rewrite)
  • Multiple categories
  • Much simpler installer
  • Comment moderation
  • XFN support
  • Atom support
  • Edit this page/comment links
  • Trackback on edit
  • Attach XML URIs to links
  • Movable Type import
  • Textpattern import


  • Consistent naming structure and vision
