Download ApeJet Blog 2.0 Logo

March 12, 2006-
I've stopped working on ApeJet Blog for now. It's missing a lot of advanced features that I'd like to use, but I just don't have the time to implement them all. Some of the features would really require a database to work correctly and quickly, but requiring a database would go against the goal of keeping things "ultra-simple".

I've switched over to WordPress. The transition really wasn't that painful, but I did have to write a little program to strip cdata elements from the ApeJet Blog RSS files.

If you're looking for a simple blogging tool to install on your site, ApeJet Blog may still be what you're looking for.

ApeJet Blog is an ultra-simple webloging tool. It allows anyone with a PHP 4 enabled website to build and run their own blog on Linux, Windows, and more. It's easy to install, doesn't require any databases, and produces valid RSS 2.0. Best of all it's licensed under the MIT License.
