The Saga Continues
WordPressWordPress was borne of initial idea seeding via B2 (Cafelog) in 2001, which was launched by Michael Valdrighi. In 2003, cofounders Matt Mullenweg and Mike Little forked B2 and created WordPress, an Open Source blogging and now content management system estimated to power the largest number of websites of any individual product (20%). Through the largest thriving community of any website management system, WordPress has grown to include theme designers, plugin developers, webmasters and site developers. With the power of participants, WP now can power anything from small individual blogs to large multi-user social communities to business websites. Core contributing developers include Ryan Boren, Mark Jaquith, Matt Mullenweg, Andrew Ozz, Peter Westwood and Andrew Nacin. WordPress has just recently celebrated its 10 year anniversary.
WPCommunityWPCommunity.com was started as an extension of Web Developer Tom Ford who found WordPress in the early days looking for a solution to power a group of large websites that had outgrown their flat HTML infrastructure.

The way this individual was able to present this side by side comparison using WordPress ultimately led to giving it a shot...which led to massive experimentation to the different things it could do.

(as well as solving countless technical issues and working through many full website builds).

Fast Page Switch adds a metabox with a drop down menu to the Page editing screen that allows you to quickly switch to a different page. This eliminates the need to visit the All Pages screen and search for the next page you want to edit.
Fast Page Switch saves time if you have less than 20 pages. If you have more than 20, it could be cumbersome to use and outweigh the time saving benefits.Fast Page Switch in Action
