.net Tutorial: Build a tumblelog with Textpattern

In last months edition of .net magazine you will find a tutorial written by my good self on how to build a custom tumblelog using my favourite CMS Textpattern. This is one of the many questions I get asked on a regular basis about my site, I’m not using WordPress or Tumblr and now you have a tutorial you can follow to find out how I created a custom one myself.

Head on over to my portfolio entry at Massive Blue Build a Bespoke Tumblelog to download a PDF copy of the article provided by the great guys over at .net.

It’s also possible to create a tumblelog using Wordpress, with CSS and a bit of extra PHP.

I actually just finished this tutorial. Worked perfect and it’s going to be my spring board for a little side project. Thanks for doing this!
