For the last several weeks, Jim Ramsey has been developing a new web site design using Movable Type 4.1's new template set and theming infrastructure. His goals were simple:
- make it easy for users to create not just a blog, but an entire web site
- create a web site that guides the user through customization right out of the box
- architect a set of templates that is more intuitive to customize
The result of his work is pretty incredible - so much so that we decided to include the new template set, called the "Universal Template Set," with the new Professional Pack. Users will be able to get a sneak preview of the feature next week when we release Movable Type 4.1 Release Candidate 2 announced yesterday.
Or if you can't wait that long, we have created a short screencast to demonstrate how Movable Type's new template set framework functions and some of the many features found within the Universal Template Set. Check it out!
