MovableType for your site (not blog)

In: Web development

20 Jul 2003

Beyond the Blog walks through the modification of MovableType for use in managing entire sites. Boxes and Arrows is a prime example of an entire website powered by MT.

This is very interesting to me, because I’ve been searching high and low for a free, lightweight, usable Content Management System (CMS) for but all my experimentation and evaluation has turned up naught. Perhaps it would be good for me to do a little under-the-hood tweaking of MT myself.

Have you looked at Lots of functionality and a great community. PHP though, but works really well for me on my site.

I had actually and I think I’ll do so again. I think I didn’t like it the first time I used it (I think it was because of register_globals – should be fixed by now I hope), but I see you’re using it on your site which is quite like what I want. I’ll try it out again.

Thanks for the suggestion.

I’m halfway through evaluating Drupal and I must say it is good. I think I can work with it, and in any case I’m more familiar with PHP than CGI programming with Perl.
