Those Curtains Have to Go!

Well I couldn’t resist and spent the last two days redesigning the Blog. I manhandled the elegant little templates Movable Type comes with until they looked just like the old blog. The voting has disappeared, but it’s nicer in other ways.
The archives link is back at the bottom, with month by month and day by day views. I’d like to pretty that up when I get a chance. The calendar feature in the next version of MT should do the trick.

I’ve added single entry view that has a back and next button, so you can go entry by entry reading my original post and the comments that followed. Get there by clicking any post’s title or the Comments link.

I am also categorizing the entries now. I’ll archive by category at some point, as well. For now, there are no categories for the old Greymatter and Blogger posts. I just lumped them all in the 2001 category. At some point I’ll categorize them, too.

There’s an e-mail notification feature, too, but I can’t figure out how to make it available to you on the page. It’s not documented anywhere, but as soon as I can I’ll make it possible for you to receive either new posts in their entirety or an e-mail notification.

As usual, I welcome any input or requests. Thanks for your patience during the transition. Now I know what vacations are for.

Viva Movable Type!

  1. If I remember correctly, you were using Greymatter before. Can you compare your experience with Greymatter to MovableType? Why choose one over the other?
    Thanks!

  2. The new look to the blog look great, please keep up the good work. But, if it is possible, could you please keep us inform how you like the new blog program. The reason is, if it gets the Leo Laporte approval, I know a few people who would love to use it.
    Thanks

  6. The blog says there are comments already here but I don’t see them. Leo, I love the idea of categorizing the entries and then archiving by category. It’s the libraian way, alright! Think you’ve done a great job with the new blog. Sure am looking forward to your return to TSS on Monday. Love all the TSS crew but it’s just not the same without you.

  7. Very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very nice, Leo!

  8. Congrats Leo! You did a great job customizing the look of your new blog to make it look more like the old blog, a major undertaking, no doubt, but I am sure you had fun doing it.
    One small request, please, can you make the comments font a larger size, the font size you are using for your posts is a nice comfortable, easy to read size, and these comments from your visitors are very tiny in comparison.
    Thanks Leo,

  9. Wow, what service! Larger print! Thanks Mr. Mayor!
    As a side note, my Mom mentioned to me today that while she was listening to a computer help show on KDKA radio, a caller actually CALLED in to the show to help the host!!!!! When the host asked how this woman knew the fix to his problem, she replied that she watched Tech Tv and mentioned that there is a guy on there named Leo who “is very smart about computers, but can explain it all so everyone can understand it.”
    I just thought I’d pass that along to you. (Unfortunately my Mom doesn’t have the digital cable where Tech Tv is offered, she just has regular old basic cable.)
