Survey: How do you have Movable Type configured?

By Byrne Reese
Posted June 3, 2008.

Since the day we released Movable Type Open Source, the software has been downloaded thousands of times per day. Wow, that is a lot of people trying Movable Type out, and because MT supports multiple environments and multiple databases like MySQL, Postgres, SQLite, Microsoft SQLServer and Oracle, that is a lot of different ways in which Movable Type can be configured once it has left our showroom floor.

Having this information however is very important to us because it helps us to better understand our users' needs and to build a product that is optimized for the most common usage scenarios.

Therefore, we have created a very simple, multiple-choice, anonymous survey that will help us collect this valuable information. So, if you have a moment, we would appreciate it if you could take the survey and help us understand how you use Movable Type!

This survey is interesting but old. I decided to start it and the first question was What version of Movable Type are you currently running? with given answers until 4.2. Well, I am on MT 5.2 and this is why I haven’t answered at all :)

This pole is for real MT users. Yes, the answers are old, but when you do the survey it remains you the first days when you touch MT and all the mistakes you’ve made. Many, many things :)

I also started it because I really like to participate in such surveys, but unfortunately it is old. The latest MT version available on the survey is 4.2, but I am on 5.12 :)
