Well, I’ve done it. I finally migrated to the new Movable Type, and I’m quite happy about the layout and all. I haven’t checked out the new features, but I do think it’s a good piece of work. And I can even sort-of understand it not being free anymore, though I do think it’s a bit hard on users to demand no more than 3 blogs and one author for any one installation.
Especially now that Bush is in, I have plans to go ahead with a new website, one that will use multiple-authors (as many as possible) and will need to use a CMS (Content Management System). But I don’t know which one to implement. Maybe I could use WordPress, but to me it seems like a lot of work to set up. Then again, I suppose the method would be less like a personal blog, and I also guess the approach would be more like a pro news portal, so I’d only have to set up the whole thing once, and from then on it’d just be maintenance.
And it is a killer idea, worthy of sinking a few weeks of my next free holiday into, if I can pull it off. We’ll have to see.
In any case, any of the nitpicky little problems I had with comment spam seem to have disappeared. Humorously enough, they disappeared with my MT Upgrade, not with my new upgrade of MT-Blacklist. I really don’t understand that. I wish, though, that a solution this simple were available for the New Sophists’ Almanac website. To which, by the way, I am planning to post soon.
