Just a quick post to share some links and resources that have been created or have caught my eye recently:
- Recommended Plugins - we have added a page that lists a more complete list of plugins selected by community plugin directory editors.
- Recently Added Plugins - we have also added a more complete listing of recently added plugins..
- Tidy Templates - Tim Appnel has created a plugin to help publishers normalize their Movable Type tags to use a consistent style and syntax. Very nice.
- SezWho - I have been seeing SezWho, an interesting service that provides universal commenter profiles across the web, from time to time on sites I visit from time to time so it was good to see that they also have a Movable Type Plugin to make it easy for anyone to use their service.
- How to Build a Style Catcher Repository - Movable Type makes it really easy for people to browse various style collections scattered across the web and then to download, install and apply those styles to a blog - all from within Movable Type. This recently published guide details how developers and designers can construct their own style repositories and allow Movable Type users to browse and select from those libraries a style they wish to use on their own blog.
- Unstick those menus - some users have rightly complained that our pull down menus sometimes get stuck open, and can only be closed by hovering the mouse over them again. To avoid this very annoying "feature" you can download a new version of mt.js and install it over the file of the same name in your Movable Type 4.01 installation.
- 500,000 comments and counting - Props to our friends at ScienceBlogs for receiving their half-millionth comment. Wow.
- We're rolling out member profiles - we are beginning to roll out member profiles across all of movabletype.org, starting with the Plugin Directory. Soon these profiles will aggregate a user's contributions across all of MovableType.org, including Learning Movable Type, our Documentation web site, as well as from other sites currently under development.
