If you’ve read any of my past posts, you know that I’m particularly interested in using WordPress as a foundation for writing web applications.
I’ve discussed this extensively in the following articles:
- Why WordPress isn’t Viewed as an Application Framework
- WordPress For Application Development
- Building Web Applications with WordPress

For questions and comments about the application, feel free to leave ’em in the comments.
Perhaps Curtis will chime in on a few of technical challenges, the approach, and what all went into building this particular application on WordPress.
