Upgraded to Movable Type 3.2


After playing with WordPress 2.0 and not being satisfied (yet) with getting it to do what I want it to do, I've upgraded this blog from Movable Type 2.661 to 3.2. I've also switched from using the Berkeley DB to using a MySQL database.

In addition to creating a custom header and making stylesheet adjustments, I'll be working on fixing most of the things that are now broken and adding features that are missing (such as my list of Craft Reads).

Comments are again open on new posts. Trackbacks are also activated on new posts.

More to come later...

[8:00pm] I'm done for the night. More adjustments are needed.

Links to archived pages are broken - please use Search in the sidebar to locate what interests you...

[January 7-11 and on as time allows, 2006] Things to do:

  • Done - Add Category Heading to each category page
  • Done - Fix format of Master Category Index page to use Parent: Subcategory
  • Done - Add parent category to category list for each entry
  • Done - Get header to display properly; adjust stylesheet
  • Done - Get multiple categories to display for each entry
  • Done - Fix popup images
  • Done - Adjust entry date to display as: Day of Week, Month Day, Year
  • Done - Switch to using PHP includes on templates
  • Done - Fix layout of extra pages
  • Done - Set redirect in .htaccess to fix most of the broken links because there's no "archives" directory - Done - doesn't fix broken links for basenames more than 30 characters or broken links because category paths are now different for many posts
  • Done - Figure out why Google has removed this site from its index - Oops! 2 errors by me
  • Done - Test comments
  • Look into this category page navigation scheme: Prev_Cat | Main | Next_Cat
  • Done - Turn on pings
  • Look at dynamic publishing
  • Look at included comment spam protections; look at comment plug-ins
  • Done - Look into configuring the search template if search results from multiple blogs are displayed - they weren't
  • Done - Remove old blog files from server
