This page gives you an insight into the Open Source project FlatPress, and the philosophy behind it.
FlatPress is maintained by a merry band of volunteer developers. We are united by the joy of free software and the good feeling of making our skills available to others.
We don't get (or want) money for FlatPress. Also, we don't want our efforts to be praised - but at least appreciated.
FlatPress is offered to you, free of charge, under the terms of the General Public License. You are free to use it for any purposes, and also to adapt and change the source code to your needs. Although we are not obligated to provide any bugfixes or support (offered “as is”), we of course give our very best to do so.
We are running the whole project in our free time - we simply can't guarantee you reaction times for emails, GitHub issues or questions on the support forum. But again, we do our very best to support you whereever we can.
Luckily, we have a great community that helps us with testing, coding, and supporting each other. This open and friendly spirit is the heart of FlatPress. You are warmly invited to be part of it!
Or, in other words:
What we offer to you is FlatPress - and our heart and soul we put into it.
What we kindly ask you for is to become a part of FlatPress with your heart and soul.
FlatPress is around since 2006, the software is mature and well-tested. And yet, we're still in Version 1.2.1 (as of March 2022). We don't stuff gazillions of features into our software, and we won't publish a new release each week.
FlatPress is meant to be a stable software without surprises.
Glad you ask, thanks for caring! :) In fact, there a are many ways to contribute to FlatPress.
Found a bug? Built a plugin? Designed a theme? Want to propose a new feature? Let us know!
FlatPress “speaks” some languages out-of-the-box. If yours is not included yet, feel free to create a language pack! You don't need to be programmer to do so, the guidelines show you how it works. We'd love to add your translation to the FlatPress standard download package!
Even if you aren't a programmer, you can easily support our project.
