Great job everyone! And thank you for the new config directives. I can think of a number of people who will find that especially helpful! on June 15, 2009, 2:37 p.m. Reply

I found a very annoying bug. When someone replies on a blog post, or when I publish a blog post, the index isn’t rebuilded. The replies and posts just aren’t visible on the front page until I republish the indexes by hand.

This is especially annoying because I upload pictures my e-mail to Flickr, and Flickr posts them automatically at my blog. So when I’m away from home, it is now simply impossible for me to publish pictures at my blog. That’s not a disaster of gigantic proportions, but still, I would really like it being fixed :) on June 16, 2009, 3:22 a.m. Reply

Solved: I disabled Background Tasks, and everything works again.

I can’t see such a bug in the newest versions of MT

I’ve tried to download it because I wanted to have a look on the older versions of Moveable type but both links give 404. Does anybody know from where I can download this version?

Jo: When you go to the download page it gives you only the newest version of Moveable Type. You may send an e-mail to the owners and ask them about how to download an older version.

Search on the box on right of the top of the page and you will find your answer.

Please fix your links. They all lead to 404 and nothing can be found of what you’ve done there.

Hello, where can we see a demo page of Moveable Type with different functionalists, so to be able to catch and see the things from inside?

TheSchwartz is probably the most difficult thing I have deal with in Movable Type. I simply can not do what I know it could be done with this job queue framework. This pisses me off :(

May be all links are broken here because they have been moved to FogBugs and they have forgotten to put the redirects. What is strange is they still don’t fix them even after your comments.
