Movable Type Questions

MOvable Type importing:  What’s the best way to get my Radio Weblog into MT?  Ideally, I would like to cross post to both for a while.  Can MT send postings to Radio as well?   What about Categories?  MT has them.  Do they work the same way as in Radio, or how are they different.

Updating Navbars

It would be nice to have an automatic category selector for the navbar,  so that when a category is added,  a checkbox is available to “add it to the nav bar”,  which would then update the templates…but that would require a full re-upstream again,  which is one of the reasons why a server application is preferrable to a desktop solution.

Finally,  all is uploaded (until next time).  There needs to be,  very badly,  a way to head this off,  like a confirmation page that allows one to check off what files you don’t want uplaoded (aside from making an #upstream.xml file for each subdirectory),  and also a way to set the files for “overnight upload” or on a timer so Continue Reading

Radio Userland Client Malfunction or Bad Setting?

Help me with my Radio Userland Problem!  My Radio sofware will not upstream anything.  It doesn’t render the pages,  therefore none of my html pages are getting updated.  What could be happening?  Radio CAN make contact with the FTP sever,  and upload files,  but since none of the new entries are being rendered,  then none of the new content is Continue Reading
