Lyceum was an open-source blogging platform based on WordPress. It was developed by ibiblio, but development ceased in 2010.


Lyceum was first made public in February 2006. It originally began in mid-2005, and development is synchronous with WordPress.[1] As of March 2009, Lyceum was based on an old version of WordPress and was inactive while the developer considered whether or not to resume development.[2] In May 2010, its maintainer John Bachir announced that the project was discontinued.[3]

Differences from WordPress MU[edit]

WordPress MU, developed by the core WordPress team, is extremely similar in functionality to Lyceum. The primary difference is that Lyceum stores all of its information in a set number of database tables (it has a normalized schema). WordPress MU, on the other hand, adds new tables for each weblog added (it has a sharded schema).[4]
