1. MT 3.17 Bug Fix Release

Learning Movable Type, News, 15 KB, 195 words

Six Apart has announced that MT 3.17 has been released. This is a minor bug fix release with the main changes being: • Fixed a bug in the nofollow plugin which causes HTML sanitization of everything within an <MTPings> block. • Installation at the root of a domain no longer continually logs out the user. • Fixed URL-encoding of uploaded file paths (e.g. images%2fbeach-pic.jpeg) • Fixed a bug in mt-db2sql.cgi which caused it to fail in certain situations when subcategories are in use before conversion.

According to an announcement in the 6A ProNet, if you are running MT 3.16 and want to upgrade just the files that have changed from MT3.16, you can simply upload these files.

2. Six Apart - Movable Type News - 2.21: Important MySQL Bug Fix

Six Apart News, News, 14 KB, 334 words

Movable Type 2.21 has now been released with a very important bug fix to the MySQL schema.

The bug was that the created_on columns were timestamp fields, which means that MySQL updates them when an explicit value is not provided for them--this modifies the Authored On dates of any entries you modify. This bug will not occur if you are using MT itself, but only if you try to issue an insert or update command from the mysql client, phpMyAdmin, or another client tool. Thanks to shanson for finding this bug.

Version 2.21 has an updated schema that fixes the problem. So:

If you have not yet upgraded to 2.21 or installed Movable Type: You can just install the system as normal,...

Version 1.31 of Movable Type is now out. It is essentially the same as 1.3, but with a couple of minor bug fixes, and one major bug fix to the "link this template to a file" feature. If you are using that feature, and have already upgraded to 1.3, you should definitely upgrade to 1.31 (see instructions below).

To use this new release, follow the instructions below that apply to you: • If you are a new user, simply download the full distribution as normal; you will be downloading version 1.31 automatically. • If you are a user of any of versions 1.0, 1.1, or 1.2, simply download the upgrade distribution, which will upgrade your Movable Type system to version 1.31. • If you have already upgraded to 1.3, or if you installed the full release of 1.3, you do not need to download either of the distributions. Simply follow the instructions in...

We've just released Movable Type 3.01D. You can download the new version by logging into your Movable Type Account and using the "download" link for the appropriate license. If you're upgrading from 3.0D, there's no need to run any upgrade script for this release: just upload the files to your server and you should be ready to go!

This release fixes a number of bugs that were present in 3.0D. The lot of it boils down to this: • Comment preview is no longer dropped (see below for instructions) • Default templates now have valid HTML in a few places where they didn't before. • Lots of bugs fixed with export and import, and the primary category of an entry is included with an...

Version 2.11 of Movable Type is now out. It is essentially the same as 2.1, but with two bug fixes (one affecting comment previews, and the other affecting the <$MTArchiveCount$> tag). If you have already upgraded to 2.1, and are experiencing either of these bugs, you should upgrade to 2.11 (see instructions below).

To use this new release, follow the instructions below that apply to you: • If you are a new user, simply download the full distribution as normal; you will be downloading version 2.11 automatically. • If you are a user of any of versions 1.0, 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 1.31, 1.4, or 2.0, simply download the regular upgrade distribution, which will upgrade your Movable...

We've just released Movable Type 3.11, an update to version 3.1 which corrects some problems that were preventing many users from upgrading their installations.

If you downloaded the general release of Movable Type 3.1 and had trouble using it straight off the bat, this update is for you. Some other bugs were corrected as well; here's a complete list of changes from version 3.1: • Corrected some problems with upgrades: from 3.0x to 3.1x with Berkeley DB, or from 2.6x to 3.0 with any database system. • Updates to templates were not reflected on dynamic pages after saving an entry; that's now fixed. • In some older versions of Perl, a syntax error blocked any use of the application. • Category paths (e.g. "Mammals / Primates / Orangutans") were being...

• Added Windows right-click bookmarklet functionality, where you can use a Post to MT Blog right click option to open the bookmarklet. Thanks to Anil Dash for the code. • Added a generic <MTElse> tag, which can be used to supply an ``else'' condition to any conditional. Thanks to Brad Choate for the code. • Added an <$MTEntryPermalink$> tag, which does the right thing when displaying the link for an entry: if an individual archive, it is not followed by an anchor; otherwise, it is. • When rebuilding files, only rewrite the...

8. min-height: fixed;

MezzoBlue, Tutorials, 18 KB, 1622 words

After one too many times wistfully wishing I could scale fixed-size elements according to their content in a cross-browser friendly way, I did something about it. Presenting min-height, without the min-height.

If I had a penny for every time I've run into a situation where I really needed a block of content with a specific height, but decided not to due to the issues involved… well, I'd have a few bucks anyway.

There's no reliable way to place elements inside a parent and then have it expand gracefully along with the elements, if the parent has a starting height value. This is precisely the problem min-height solves, but it's frustrating that...

If you are experiencing intermittent "500 Server Errors" while using Movable Type and are using MySQL for your database, we are aware of the cause of the problem: a nightly cPanel update of a buggy version of the DBI and DBD::MySQL drivers. See this post on the Professional Network Weblog for more details.

The MT engineering team has been actively working with developer to help him rectify the problem. We apologize for any inconvenience and will keep you up to date on our progress as well as post here when the problem is solved.

UPDATE (Jul 6th, 2005 11pm PST): The developer of the DBD::MySQL driver reports that he has discovered the source of the problem (with the help of our own Brad Choate) and...

• New default templates no longer use &lt;label&gt; tag in the Remember info? checkbox for the ``remember me'' JS, because it was breaking XHTML validation. • Fixed Linked File Templates so that, when linking a template to a new file that doesn't yet exist, the permissions will be set correctly (based on umask settings in mt.cfg). • Added new default templates and made them customizable by stylesheets. • Added the Comment Error Template to specify the layout of the page a user receives when there is an error with his/her...

13. Six Apart - Movable Type News - UTF-8 Dirify bug and patch

Six Apart News, News, 19 KB, 901 words

Today we are releasing a patch to fix an issue for customers running Movable Type versions 3.16 or 3.17 and using UTF-8 character encoding on their weblogs. Specifically, a bug introduced in Movable Type 3.16 causes the dirify routine to preserve dashes in transformed text where, historically, it has suppressed them. This could be problematic because the dirify routine is used to create all URLs in Movable Type.

While default Movable Type installations are not adversely affected by this bug, there are certain common or legacy customizations (which will be detailed below) that could cause problems. For that reason, if you are using UTF-8 and MT 3.16 or 3.17, we suggest that...

14. Search Throttle Bug

Learning Movable Type, News, 17 KB, 485 words

There is a bug in MT3.1 that prevents MT from recognizing that a keyword search has been completed. Thus if you make a second search soon after your first search, you'll get the error message:

"Got an error: You are currently performing a search. Please wait until your search is completed."

The search function has a built-in throttle to prevent a user from a single IP address from flooding the system with search requests while existing searches are being conducted. This throttle is 60 seconds by default. Normally MT sees that a search has been completed and allows you to start another one. However, this is not happening and everyone is being subjected to the 60 second throttle.

For a temporary solution to...

Text Formatting Plugins Available

As we mentioned in our original post on Text Formatting, we hoped that Text Formatting plugins would make it easier for non-technical users to author and format weblog content. We released 2.6 just last week, and already plugin developers have implemented some exciting new Text Formatting options: • Timothy Appnel released a beta of his TikiText text formatting. • Brad Choate released version 1.1 of his Textile plugin. • Gregor Purdy released a POD text formatting text formatting plugin. • And, since we forgot to mention it previously, Adam Kalsey released MovableJive, a "port of some classic text filters".

• Added Text Formatting options. Instead of a simple Convert Line Breaks checkbox, you can now set a different formatting option for each entry. Plugins can add new options to the Text Formatting menu, which allows for greater integration with the formatting within the system (for example, Text Formatting will be applied on the preview screen). • Added PostgreSQL and SQLite database drivers. • Incorporated Brad Choate's Sanitize plugin, adding an mt.cfg setting for a global default and a per-blog setting to override it.
