Custom Tag Buttons in Edit Entry screen February 22nd, 2003 @ 3:45 pm PDT
I use bookmarklets for all my posting and hardly ever enter the MT interface to do anything other than edit old posts. So if you are like me you will need to modify bm_entry.tmpl instead of edit_entry.tmpl, but otherwise this is what you need to do if you were using Scott Andrew’s PowerLinks in your […]
MT 2.61 February 17th, 2003 @ 8:21 am PDT
I finally bit the bullet and upgraded. Davidgagne.net has gone from a loose collection of random html files to a Blogger-powered site to a Greymatter-powered site to its current MovableType extravaganza-ness. It only took me about a year to make the jump from MT2.1 to MT2.61. That works out to about two decades in internet […]

Are you using MovableType to manage your blog? If so, you might be interested in the tutorial I just added to my Works in Progress blog – How to Add a “BlogData” Footer to Each Post. It’s nifty (I hope!) because I explained how to take advantage of several aspects of the MovableType framework that […]
PowerLinks May 4th, 2002 @ 2:04 am PDT
Well that was fun. Way back in March I implemented the PowerLinks MT hack from scottandrew.com. When I upgraded to MT2.11 I lost the hack, of course. So I re-hacked it. I played with it a bit and added a few more features. One thing I have wanted to do since day one was add […]

[The girlie matters] has a cool collection of MovableType tips and tricks. Sadly, she is another blogger that for some reason doesn’t ping weblogs.com when she updates. I wish *everyone* with a blog would ping … it would make using blogTracker so much simpler …
