Here, you find answers to general questions about FlatPress. If you have technical questions, please see the Tech FAQ.
FlatPress is a lightweight, easy-to-set-up blogging engine. Plain and simple, just PHP. No database needed! Being around since 2006, FlatPress is mature and well-tested.
Important to know: FlatPress is not “WordPress on flat files”. WordPress plugins usually don't work in FlatPress. Anyway, sometimes you are just a few lines away from making them work :) In fact, many of the bundled filters on the text are from WP.
Themes have just nothing to do with WP, not at all.
