Big all around upgrade tonight. With a six pack of Bud, needle nose pilers and a screwdriver, I’m happy to say everything went smoothly.
Hardware upgrades to this old Sawtooth:
- Upgraded to Moveable Type 3.1
- Trackbacks are now inline with comments on the entry pages. As I see it a trackback is a comment, it’s just not local. Trackbacks are shaded with pattern to set them apart from comments.
- Comments can now be formated with Markdown. (here’s the syntax, Marty. Now you can leave ‘pretty’ comments)
- Monthly archives are back
- Blacklist updated to the new MT3 version. Comment spam has been getting out of hand lately.
Still to do:
- TypeKey logins for commenting is börked. I can’t figure out what the problem is. Non- TypeKey comments work fine. Possibly because I don’t have Crypt::DSA compiled? I’m not sure. I need to do some research on TypeKey and yes… I have a token
- I’ve switched from Textile to Markdown. There’s a lot of old posts with Textile formatting that are a little screwy. I’ll slowly get around to updating them.
- I still have to add templates for comment previews, search results and comment errors. Until i get around to it— it’s not pretty.
- Miscellaneous (minor) CSS and structure problems. There may be formatting glitch on Opera.
- Stylesheets need tweaking to handle all the Markdown formatting options
- More feeds
Guaranteed there’s a bug here and there. If something doesn’t work as it should, let me know.
