The problem is all in the file names Blogger and Movable Type publish out to.
Posts about "Movable Type"
Two versions of this post. I'll start with the executive summary. If you've moved to Movable Type 4 and find that when you get to edit an entry, the body and Extended fields are all greyed out, then I might have a cure for you!
After months of thinking about it, I finally got round to setting the file names that Movable Type publishes out, to be truncated if they get too long. This is no bad thing given that before, URLs were based on the full post name, and some of them got very long. It wasn’t too much hassle to get it all sorted, and the redirects in place, but it does leave me with some rather odd file names, including one post which now becomes bye_bye_the_bra.live… On the plus side, truncation is an option – as is setting a custom file name…
Well all good things must come to an end. After over three years, I've finally moved Movable Type over to using mySQL instead of the old Berkley DB database. Wiith several hundred posts in it, things were just getting a little too slow to work with, so it had to go.
For well over a year or so, I've been working, in my spare time, on a content management project for the erstwhile Transdiffusion - a project which has, ultimately, resulted in the neglect of this blog, the upload of my photos and goodness knows what else.
Finally decided to leave the world of Movable Type v2.661 behind and embrace the world of version 3.2. It has a nicer interface after all, and plugins are good.
At long last, version 3.0 of The F-Word has gone live. Given I first started work on redesigning Catherine's site back in December 2002, you might understand that its launch is somewhat of a relief to me.
Today has been a little... odd.
Given the PR disastor that surrounded the launch of Movable Type 3, it's perhaps not surprising that there have been some 'clarifications' (or backtracking, depending on whose opinion you read) about the new licensing.
Following on from my Movable Type essay/rant [delete as appropiate], I've made an ever so slight change to the template of this site.
