Keep in mind that his overall goal was to make the platform simple for the average Joe without PHP or My SQL skills.
Therefore, Matt made semantic changes to the index.php, which is the file that loads your blog’s homepage.
Later on Word Press Wiki was christened “Codex“, a term that was suggested by Monkinetic in a Word Press chat room.
That was not the end of it, Matt and Mike would make over a hundred commits to Word Press.
The support forums were growing in popularity by the day.
All the same, they weren’t enough, so there was a need to create official Word Press documentation.
The wiki quickly outgrew the support forums because “…it felt like a much more informal and freeform way to create documents.” The wiki was built on Media Wiki, the same script behind huge projects such as Wikipedia.
This means the Word Press repository at Sourceforge kept growing and with the growth came new features such as changes to the administration panel, improvements to the installation process, Mike’s b2links hack, and Word Press’ branding.
Mike and Matt were especially keen on creating an easy installation process that Word Press is famous for.
On the homepage, there was this tagline: This was Matt’s vision and soon enough, Word became an ever-growing Word Press community.
The website made it easier for users to get involved.
I’m sure there are one or two others in the community who would be too.
