Here is the fix for the MovableType “unitialized value at lib/MT/App/CMS.pm line 999” error. And here’s a special link from Microsoft that should be very useful to many people.

Webgraphics rocks. The tagline is, “a daily compilation of hypertext design resources, links, commentary and notes.” This is one of those sites that I’m going to have to read top-to-bottom; it’s full of great information and design tricks.

Send Entry January 25th, 2002 @ 10:07 pm PDT
I just read on the MovableType site that Ben and Mena are getting ready to release MT version 2.0, and it will include a ‘send this entry’ feature similar to the one I’ve implemented on my blogs. So … since they are the experts, I’m not going to do any more development or write a […]

Note to self: Remember to change MT/lib/MT.pm line 205 from return $mt->error(“Building entry failed: ” . $entry->title); to return $mt->error(“Building entry failed: ” . $tmpl->errstr); More on this later!
