I’ve just updated this site’s backend with the latest version of Movable Type – version 3.31. The upgrade process was very, very easy and seems to have gone rather well. Not much has changed, although I gather that there are some new features in this release:
Tags: Describe your entries with tags so readers can easily find any content and subscribe to custom feeds.
Widgets: Arrange and manage your page just by dragging and dropping. Widgets can include your own content or content from other web services and feeds.
Activity Feeds: Reduce the burden of managing your blog by getting all the updates on comments and feedback on your blog, along with your blog’s activity, delivered via a secure custom feed.
New Blog Styles: Customize the look of your site with just a few clicks, without editing any HTML. Choose from dozens of unique designs and layouts.
Powerful Templating Language: Movable Type’s industry-leading template language is more powerful than ever, letting you choose exactly which content you want to display on your pages, as well as how it’s presented. Customize your entire site without having to do any programming.
I’ve noticed a couple of differences so far but I have no idea as of yet as to their purpose. There’s this one button that says “bigger” and another one says “smaller”. Hmmm, I need to read the new user manual.
If you get any issues then please let me know in the comments and I’ll try and get it sorted out.
