The Power of Movable Type

by john on July 15, 2003

In yet another example of how to leverage the power of Movable Type, Matt Haughey of Metafilter fame has written Beyond the Blog, in which he describes some of the methods he uses to extend Movable Type. In particular he focuses on using MT templates to drive the static pages of a website such as a resume page or an about page, and how to use MT as a simple sort of database application.

To seasoned developers this sort of stuff reeks of fluff – but it’s rare to find good designers who are also good coders and what a flexible templating system like MT can provide is to allow a designer to work independently, yet still provide terrifically powerful web sites.

I gotta try that. I rely too much on logging in and editing by hand the numerous ancillary pages and files. I usually am logged into MT all day long anyway…
