Movable Type 2.5

| 5 Comments | No TrackBacks

Just completed a remarkably smooth, pain-free update to Movable Type version 2.5 :) The database conversion from Berkeley DB to MySQL went smoothly as well.

I started using MT with version 2.0 and haven't done any of the updates in between that, and this latest release, so I still have quite a bit of work to do in order to implement the public search function and TrackBack. The templates and style sheets need to be updated with the code for those functions; then the style sheets have to be edited to match the dog:blog :: cat:chat look.

Hopefully everything will be working as advertised over the next few days, and we can get back to our intended main focus... pet health issues.

UPDATE 10/13/02: Well, that didn't take nearly as long as I thought it was going to. Search form is over by there to the right (under the archive listings) and TrackBack is working. Uh... yes, I know that GM has always had a public search function. It's a moot point now, isn't it :) . I still need to find some time to go through the TrackBack Development blog and the rest of the docs and specs.

No TrackBacks

TrackBack URL:


My hats off to you..Im to chicken to even try. LOL

When I asked paul to explain the trackback thing to me in plain english he basically told me that:
when a person wants to make a comment on an entry of yours, and they want to talk about it on their own blog too, instead of doing both, they can click on trackback and get the link, then when they make the entry on their blog and put that trackback link in the trackback/ping place it tells the other blog about the entry, and creates the link on the other blog in the trackback comment looking thingie. (I think that makes sense)

Oh, I am so glad you had a hassle free update to 2.5. I am going to switch to it with a whole clean install when I switch my blog to the new domain name. Someday, I will figure out what trackback is. LOL

personally I don't use the trackback thing. I don't think I write important enough stuff for people to make an entry about mine in their own blog. But it is quite nifty.

Just popping in to say hello. I hope you had a good weekend!
