Movable Type 6.2.2 Release Notes

This version of Movable Type was released November 25, 2015.


Improved upload destination path settings

In previous versions, users can choose an upload destination from the listed values only, which makes it difficult to insert a path that a user wants.
In this version, users can customize the upload destination path freely.



You can specify upload path specifiers as follows in the upload destination path.

Specifier Description Example
%s The site path for website/blog.
Upload destination must begin with %s or %a. Also, you cannot specify %s and %a at same time.
%a The archive path for website/blog.
Upload destination must begin with %s or %a. Also, you cannot specify %s and %a at same time.
%u The basename of user author_basename
%y 4-digit year 2015
%m 2-digit month 09
%d 2-digit day of the month 04
