I discovered WordPress in the beginning of 2008, when I had to set up a Blog for a customer.
Using almost exclusively PostgreSQL in my developments, and not wishing to have it installed with MySQL on a server (and absolutely not on my dev station ), I’ve done some searches and worked on making a compatible version( WordPress was version 2.5).
After some days of work, I had a working setup on PostgreSQL (installing and working OK), so I could work on creating the theme for my customer without installing MySQL.
This initial code is based on usleepless’ « mysql2pgsql.php » that I found in a forum while searching (I lost references, sorry).
Working on a new project, I discovered that WordPress recently published version 2.8, and I wanted to check if my patch could work again.
Quite surprisingly, I hadn’t to make much changes to have my patch work on this new version (in fact, changes concerned only the hooks to place in the right files).
Then I decided to make a plugin that would work completely and could be used for a real blog on a day by day basis, and here comes PG4WP.
