On moving MovableType

I moved this site to a new host roughly two months ago. When doing so I thought it might be nice to go with a pre-installed MovableType host so I didn’t have to fool around with editing config files. Of course, I used the MT export/import function to move the entries (as the database schemas were slightly different between the two installs), but now it seems that didn’t work very well. I’ve since recieved a few emails stating I have broken links and/or missing pages. Those emails are correct too.

If you find a link via search engine or otherwise, and the page does not come up, try adding a “_1” to the end of the filename (but before the .php part). And make sure the filename is not more than 15 characters (which means you may have to delete a few characters to stuff the “_1” in. If that fails, chalk it up to a poor migration. If you email me back, I will try to dig it out of an old backup and upload it for you.

Thanks.

SpamLookup lovers speak out again

In the never ending battle against weblog comment and trackback spam, MovableType’s SpamLookup is a gem. I’ve said it before – I use it, and I get very manageable levels of blog spam. Seems I am not alone (again).

Note: Spamroll and its author have absolutely no affiliation with SixApart, other than being a paid licensee of their software.
