81. MTBlacklist

PubHacks, Tutorials, 5 KB, 69 words

Lots of warnings about incompatibilities on the Blacklist website, enough to frighten me. I soldiered on, and amazingly, the thing installed right up with no problems. It took about 5 minutes.

Here's the links you should have: My original installation post The MT-Blacklist site The Comment Spam Clearinghouse

83. MT-Blacklist

Murky, News, 23 KB, 199 words

According to the MT Plugin pages, version 2.01b of MT Blacklist should be available - it's even claimed to be compatible with the latest version of MT.

Unfortunately the links only yield version 1.6.5 as of now.

A pity.

84. Forward Compatibility

MezzoBlue, Tutorials, 9 KB, 403 words

There was a good intro to this post at one point in time, but thanks to a Safari caching bug when using Movable Type and comment spam, it's long gone. Hopefully the rest of this will make sense without the introduction. Oh well.

Now, about forward compatibility. The recent flap about the XHTML 2.0 draft says a lot about this. Things are deprecated to the point that no site built using valid 1.0 will work if I switch doctypes? So what am I gaining by supporting 1.0 now?

Sites from 5 years ago still work in today's browsers (aside from those that took advantage of browser–specific quirks back in the day) so why change coding practices? What works is what matters,...

87. Subtraction's New Design

Six Apart ProNet Weblog, News, 13 KB, 80 words

Khoi Vinh's new design for Subtraction has gotten a good amount of well-deserved attention. It's an elegant and spare design that's very distinct from most Movable Type weblogs, and Khoi does a good job of explaining some of the thought behind it for those who are looking for inspiration.

89. Search Engine Watch launches a blog

Six Apart ProNet Weblog, News, 14 KB, 261 words

Danny Sullivan, one of the biggest names in the search engine industry, has just announced the launch of the Search Engine Watch Blog, and takes the time to explain why he chose Movable Type 3.11 to power the blog. Danny got help setting up his blog from Rob Matthews of Tiger Technologies.

In passing, Danny points out some criticisms I'd made of the Search Engine Optimization industry, but to be clear, those are critiques of those who were or are abusing the medium. Here's hoping that Danny's example of how to use a blog well will be one that the unprofessional exceptions in the SEO business learn from and emulate.

Search Engine Watch has always had some of the best coverage of its...

90. Crossposter for Movable Type

Six Apart ProNet Weblog, News, 14 KB, 139 words

Ben Hammersley is at it again, this time with Crossposter for Movable Type, a clever little script that will grab posts that you've written on various weblogs and reposts them all to one central blog.

If you participate in a number of blogs, or are concerned with making sure one of your audiences is aware of all your writing, regardless of where it was originally published, this should fit the bill.

For example, if you have a group install of weblogs on your intranet for each project or workgroup, Ben's script could be used to create weblogs for each person at the company, just by retrieving their posts from the blogs they participate in.
