A lot of Movable Type users are about to be given another great reason to upgrade to Movable Type 4.2: the release of the Mid-Century template set by Jim Ramsey. Jim also designed the Professional Website template set (formally known as the Universal Template Set), which is largely regarded as one of the best and most flexible packaged designs for Movable Type and also comes bundled with Movable Type Pro. Jim is setting a new standard for design on Movable Type, not just in aesthetics, but in functionality.
This may go without saying, but Jim is someone who knows design, and he is tuned into what people want. Combine those two qualities as Jim does and just look at the amazing feature list he has assembled:
- AJAX Commenting
- Auto-highlighting comments from the author
- Unique archive listing design
- Tag clouds
- And more...
We are also happy to make this wonderful blog design available to the world for free under an open source license to encourage others to build and expand upon it.
Download the Mid-Century Template Set now, and when you have it deployed let us know with a comment so we can see what you have done with it.
