  • Building Web Applications with WordPress

    Is this possible? Why would you want to do that?Well, ever since me and a partner released RoloPress back at WordCampNYC, people have been asking me how it works. Essentially, RoloPress converts WordPress into a Contact Manager. It is not meant to be embedded in a blog, it is meant to be a standalone web application, just like Highrise, Zoho CRM and Salesforce.com. In fact, RoloPress has absolutely nothing to do with blogging.
