I am not sure what is harder to believe: that WordPress has been around for fifteen years, or that I have been using it for almost six! As I mentioned in part two of the Mercheum history post, I experimented with WordPress for quite some time before actually using it for the Harvey Mercheum website.
To find events in your area, or perhaps buy a t-shirt, visit the WordPress turns 15 website. Torque updated their post on 15 Amazing WordPress Milestones if you would like to read a bit about the history of WordPress. And to interactively view what the different versions of WordPress looked like, London WordPress agency 93digital created a fun “time machine“. What the dashboard looked like is on the left, and what a website created using that version and the default theme looked like is on the right.
I am very happy that I chose to develop the Harvey Mercheum website in WordPress, and wish the WordPress community many more years of progress. #WP15
