Hi Grace… as I mentioned to your previous comment:

We’ll have some logos as we get closer to official release. We’ll provide them as part of a blog entry here when they’re ready.

Hi Beau,

I’m new to MT and have not had experiences with any of the other versions of MT. I downloaded MT5 B2 so I can have a go at it. I’ve created a couple of pages and assigned tags to each page. I am trying to modify the template so I can have a different layout based on the tag name. However, I am unable to retrieve the tag name for each page. The following is what I have in my template but nothing is displayed - . Since I don’t have experiences with the other versions, I’m not sure if I’m doing something wrong, or whether this is a known issue in MT5.

Thanks, Tracy

I am using the PageTags in combination with the TagName tags to try to retrieve the tag for the current page.

I use version 5.13 at the moment and it is awesome. It has lots of improvements from this beta version. I recommend for everybody to upgrade, you won’t regret it.

Tracy put the code behind the tabs and it will work.

Am I correct to think that this version is the last one which has an official release? So, it is not a Beta anymore?

Hello from Bulgaria. I own a news related site with hand coded platform. However, I want to changed it to something more reliable. A friend of mine told me about Moveable Type, but I wonder could Moveable Type work as a platform for news related sites.

I will be glad if some of you answer me.

PS. I am talking about the free version of Moveable Type.

Hi Grace, you can try with the beautiful badges Moveable Type offers for the site owners who choose MT as their CMS. You can find them here on the site. You just need to search for badges in the search bar.
