Movable Type/PHP

Movable Type 3.01D is now driving this thing full time; all of the primary can be viewed either through the default home page generated by Movable Type, or through the alternate home page based on the original PHP only architecture.

Why is this significant?

One of the things I always liked about this site was that it was (give or take) a one page web site; a single template that lets me roll new pages easily.

Movable Type has let me maintain that advantage while also giving me the advantages of the Movable Type content management system; while I never had a problem updating pages by hand (my HTML skills are good) it was always a pain in the butt; Movable Type eliminates the need for me to fuss around with basic stuff like break & paragraph tags, and makes it easier to add new stuff.

At the same time, I can still generate a page on my own using the same template with whatever HTML I want. You get a consistent (and hopefully easy to use) interface, while I get the ability to choose the best way to roll out whatever content I want to roll.

It’s a win-win situation.

More fun to come I’m sure, but for now this’ll have to do.
