Our mission statement

We believe longevity in the marketplace is often one of the hallmarks of an optimal solution. The pre-5.0 WordPress publishing experience was (and still is) a tried and tested solution complimented by a wide array of plugins that extend its functionality. ClassicPress is a content management system (CMS) that builds upon the foundation that made WordPress the most popular CMS in the world.

Careful and deliberate planning combined with the insight and collective wisdom of the ClassicPress community will ensure the success of ClassicPress for many years to come.

Business-focused CMS

Although an effective CMS may include a blog, expanding a blog into a CMS is a more complex task. ClassicPress serves businesses worldwide that will benefit greatly from a more robust, business-focused CMS. As ClassicPress evolves, the features and functionalities we implement will align with our three core ideals:

Powerful. Versatile. Predictable.

We facilitate democratic discussion and decision making

In order for community members to participate in decisions about ClassicPress, it is essential that we provide a platform that makes it easy for every member to share ideas, debate, vote, and give feedback without censorship.

To make this a reality, we facilitate these discussions via our forum and other digital communication platforms. Our organizational structure allows us to adapt to meet the expressed needs of the ClassicPress community, and we make decisions collaboratively with the overall mission of ClassicPress in mind. 

We will make people’s lives better

We are sensitive to the wide variety of needs that are presented by ClassicPress users. Programmers, designers, marketers, businesses, and individual website visitors each have unique challenges that must be addressed. Stability, efficiency, security, and usability are some of the considerations we seek to address in the coming weeks and months. Ultimately, we want to ensure that those who use ClassicPress find it to be a positive experience that supports them as they focus on their own personal and business goals.

We will invest in the future of ClassicPress

ClassicPress is registered as a Limited by Guarantee company based in the United Kingdom (Registration #11549088).

We pledge to use all ClassicPress finances prudently. We will be transparent about any money raised (or spent) and encourage the community to provide input on how this money will be best used. We will consistently re-invest into the ClassicPress platform and any supporting systems to ensure the continued success of ClassicPress.

Ultimately, all decisions made by the ClassicPress Committee will be based on their understanding of the ClassicPress mission and will be in an effort to serve the best interest of the organization as a whole.
