If you’re using MovableType to maintain your blog, you can add the following bit of code to allow readers to automatically add themselves to your Update / Notify list: <form method=”post” action=”<$MTCGIPath$>mt-add-notify.cgi”> <b>Get updates via email:</b><br /> <input type=”hidden” name=”blog_id” value=”<$MTBlogID$>” /> <input type=”hidden” name=”_redirect” value=”<$MTBlogURL$>” /> <input name=”email” size=”18″ /> <input type=”submit” value=”Sign Up!” […]
Editing November 23rd, 2001 @ 9:47 am PST
If you visit http://www.davidgagne.net/ you’ll see a period – . – before each link to an entry’s comments. That period is a link to the editing window for that particular entry. As long as I am logged in to MovableType, I can click on that link and immediately begin editing the post. Here’s the link […]
Revisions November 8th, 2001 @ 3:44 am PST
Oof! It took a lot of work, but I finally converted all of my main blog to MovableType. All the comments were imported, too, so I’m pretty happy about that. Now every little piece of this domain is converted. I can finally get to blogging again. And finding a job.
Hemingway October 25th, 2001 @ 4:25 am PDT
It took a few hours, but I finally converted almost all of my Hemingway site into The Hemingway Blog. It’s in MovableType now and I’m very pleased with the result. I still have to get the dozens (multiple dozens!) of essays on the author into some sort of bloggable format, but that’s just a bunch […]
XML-RPC Ping October 23rd, 2001 @ 4:06 pm PDT
Ben has written a tutorial on adding weblogs.com XML-RPC PING functionality to your MovableType blog. Woo! What does this mean? It means that if you follow the steps in the tutorial, whenever you add an entry to your MovableType blog, MT will automatically ping weblogs.com to alert that you have updated.
Previous / Next October 22nd, 2001 @ 1:01 pm PDT
If you’re using MovableType to run your blog, here’s the HTML to include ‘Previous’ and ‘Next’ buttons (with a ‘Home’ button in the middle) on your individual entry pages: <div align=”center”> <form> <MTEntryPrevious><input type=”button” value=”<$MTEntryTitle$>” onclick=”window.location='<$MTEntryLink$>’;”></MTEntryPrevious> <input type=”button” value=”Home” onclick=”window.location='<$MTBlogURL$>’;”> <MTEntryNext><input type=”button” value=”<$MTEntryTitle$>” onclick=”window.location='<$MTEntryLink$>’;”></MTEntryNext> </form> </div>
Last Updated October 22nd, 2001 @ 12:50 pm PDT
I’ve created a “Last Updated” system in my MT network and, although I’m sure it can be done better, I thought I’d share. I have five separate MT blogs running now. On my main page (which will be converted to MT once the ability to import GreyMatter comments is part of MT) I wanted to […]
Template October 12th, 2001 @ 5:34 pm PDT
The extended text of this entry contains my Individual Archive template. Cool if you want to know how I got those buttons in there. Is it obvious that the icons are the permalinks? I wonder if I need to make it more clear …Look here for the Main Index template. My css directory is open […]
Test October 12th, 2001 @ 5:22 pm PDT
This is a test to see what will happen to the category icon if I add an entry without selecting a category … Ah. What happened was this: The <MTCategory> tag was not there, so when it tried to load the .gif associated with that category (the uncategory) it looked for a file name simply […]
