    FlatPress is an extensible blogging system, standard compliant, and compatible with the SimplePHPBlog data base.

    I got in touch with FlatPress when I was looking for a WordPress alternative that does not need a MySQL data base to work. And even though running on flat files it is pretty fast.

    I think it's a neat idea, in principle, but I'll never use it. Avoiding a database and storing large amounts of data in plain files is asking for trouble down the line, IMHO. It would definitely get bogged down if the site had a decent amount of traffic. There's no way a system that simply reads data from files can be as fast as an optimized database server.

    I think FlatPress is not meant to be substitute for WordPress which does an excellent work. It is more for small projects or people who cannot afford web space with a database.
