Textpattern quickstart screencast

Summary:

Installing Textpattern, including basic configuration and publishing the first post—in under five minutes

Herewith, a screencast:

Note that about halfway through, the first time I log in, a mostly blank screen comes up. This is a known bug in Textpattern version 4.2.0. (The bug has already been fixed in the latest development version, but that hasn’t been released yet.) I might redo it when the new version comes out, in which case I’ll make the fonts bigger.

It’s done in real time and is unedited, although I did a practice take, as you might notice when the text editor’s save dialog muffs its lines by getting ahead of the script.

Starring:

Plus the Finder, of course, along with Terminal and Safari, all included with OS X.
