more like a modernised Wordpress
Yup, that's what I got it from it as well. Plus it's powered by Django...which this site no longer uses. ;_;
It looks like a similar content delivery system to what Giant Bomb and comic vine use (they did build it after all). It's less to do with the front end of websites and more the inner workings sorta like wordpress. Amazes me that many sites out there are still manually editing the HTML of pages to post articles and stuff, what is this the seventies?!
