Quick post to show Edith how this works

Just to annoy her, I’m going to:

Movable Type 6.2

I may have moved this blog to WordPress, but my opinion of the system hasn’t really changed; I still think Movable Type was a better-engineered system right from the start, and it’s only really licensing and product direction that have steered me to join the mainstream. Well, that and WordPress having matured to the point of no longer annoying me quite enough to prevent me from seeing past its obvious attractions.

MT had its quirks, though. One of which was file uploads, which went… ach, basically anywhere. Ten years into an MT install and you’d have media files strewn in every damn directly on the server, it seemed. Trust me, I just cleaned out this server.

No more! Last week saw the release of Movable Type 6.2, which includes such innovations as:

DEFAULT UPLOAD SETTINGS

Website administrator […] can configure default settings for upload that including default upload destination.

Well, gosh. Maybe there’s life in the old Perl dog yet.
