Building a blog with Anchor

I've just built this blog in no-time at all using a super-lightweight and super fast content management system.

Firstly I'll get started on the steps I took when implementing this:

NOTE: unless you have an online or virtual server in which to run the Anchor CMS you won't be able to test it out. This is because your browser is unable to run .php files.

NOTE: Make sure to delete the /install directory that is included with Anchor after the installation has completed. This is because it is a security risk and could be used as a backdoor into your server otherwise.

So that's it, building a basic blog from A to B. I was wary about getting started using Anchor as I've been a solid Wordpress enthusiast for a good few years now, but I'm getting to like using a new CMS and there's only good places for Anchor to go as more web developers catch on with it.

With the announcement of plugins for Anchor as well, and functionality being introduced soon, it's only a matter of time before we see some great tools being introduced.

Let me know what thought of the article in the comments below, and if you've got any of your own hints and tips when setting up or using Anchor then please do share!
