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 […]
Send Entry January 18th, 2002 @ 10:28 pm PDT
If you look at the little bit at the end of each of the entries here, you’ll notice something new. Yep. My first major hack of MovableType has been a success. You can now email an entry to anyone you want through a handy pop-up window. It’s just like the Yahoo! feature. Ben – the […]

<Montgomery Burns> Excellent! </Montgomery Burns> I’m about 75% done with my mt-sendentry.cgi development. Youshik has been a tremendous help with some of the trickier Perl bits and Ben is the man for being so cool about answering my eMails. I really hope I can finish working on it tonight so I can have v 0.1 […]
Rebuild Hack January 16th, 2002 @ 4:57 pm PDT
It was a dark and stormy night. I had a rebuild error in my individual archive template. I yelled at my monitor, “What could it be?!” I hadn’t modified that template in weeks! Something was wrong. And it was bad. I couldn’t rebuild all. Ack! What to do? I begged Ben for assistance. “Help!” I […]
MT fix January 16th, 2002 @ 3:36 pm PDT
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!
SendMail January 13th, 2002 @ 4:15 am PDT
This article, Setting Up Form Mail, was a tremendous help in my latest project. Soon you will be able to send any MT entry via eMail. How cool is that? Check out my Hemingway blog! Each individual post has this feature in place. w00t! I am an excited nerd now!

Want to add one of those groovy-cool calendars to your blog? MovableType 1.4 lets you! The extended text of this entry shows you the code. How cool is that?
Target Links January 8th, 2002 @ 7:30 am PDT
There’s a code snippet on the movabletype.org : support forum that details one of the many options you have if you want to make every link on your site open in a new window. I can see how this might be useful to include in a sidebar, or an include file or something, but it’s […]
MT December 21st, 2001 @ 2:22 am PDT
Here is my MovableType development wishlist. These are the features I really wish my favorite content management system had. Alternately, these are the things I really wish I could do with MovableType, which the current version does in fact support, but I haven’t yet found a way to do. If someone knows how to do […]
