Movable Type is going open source

Or more specifically, it is Movable Type 4 which is going open source. Currently you can download the beta version of this software for evaluation purposes. I used to have MT powering my blog, back in the days when MT was given away for free. When it became too spammy to tolerate, I switched to WordPress and have been with WP ever since. I doubt that I would be switching back to MT as WP has not only features and plugins to bend it to your will, but great support and a wide variety of themes to choose from.

Seriously, who in their right mind would want to switch away from WP anyway?

    1. WP stands for Winning Pitcher, but on the bottom of a score it means something else? what the hell is this?

    2. I am a foreign resident working at an insurance company. Can you please explain the difference between the terms: WP (written premiums)and GWP (gross written premiums). I can’t see the difference… THANKS

    3. My WP ultra simple Paypal cart is set up on my website but will only accept items from one add to cart button. If a second item from a different button is chosen it overrides the current choice rather than adding it to the cart. Can anyone help?

    4. The data I mentioned is not Blogs..I know WP Robot is an AutoBloggin plugin but is it possible to get data that are not blogs?

    5. I need to run some php files from within WP root directory, but WP keeps looking for a page with that permalink when I try to access it and gives me the 404 error, naturally. Is there a way to make this work?

    6. I made some spoof newspaper stories featuring my cat and I want to share them with the world, cos I think they’re funny! They are WP docs, containing text and photos. When I try copying to a blog, only the text comes out. Are there any blogs available where I can copy over my WP docs without having to type out everything again, and that will allow photos within the text?

    8. I noticed that the dashboard is missing the plugins button so the obvious conclusion is that you cannot but I just want to make sure since I’m a noob at using both the self-hosted and the free versions of WP.

      Thanks in advance.

    9. I am planning to move to AB,Canada on WP as I have approved LMO in hand and my occupation also falls under NOC O,A &B. Will my immediate family get temp resident visa as my WP is only valid for one year?

    11. Hey everyone. Currently I’ve installed the wordpress plugin wp-showhide and I would like to make it feel a little more like engadgets press release system by having an image (button) users can click instead of the linked text.

      Does anyone know how I can add an image as a button for this plugin?

    15. I have other audio files that are longer in minutes, but smaller in MB. How do I reduce the file size to less than 8mb which word press requires?

    16. I have recently bought a Fujifilm wp-fxf100 underwater housing for my camera to use on holiday next week. I have greased the orings and the actual camera housing is watertight, however my flash diffuser is letting water in when I test it in the sink. Should it be doing this?
      The flash diffuser is not actually letting the water into the housing, and getting the camera wet, its just the flash section, which is seperate…

    17. I have a two year old filly AQHA, that I am training for western pleasure. She hold her neck level perfectly. I just can’t get her nose tucked in where it should be. Any suggestions? I really don’t like the idea of using forks.

    18. So I had an idea of having one main domain, something general such as info.com. Obviously not that but similar in the fact that it could relate to an endless number of topics. If I were to create word press blogs using the WP Robot using sub domains of that general domain would I get just as high rankings in Google searches and would I still get traffic?

    19. I’m not exactly sure to call it a quiz, poll, test or whatever but basically i want to recruit ny authors for my blog. So i want to make a test for people to fill in with questions like:

    20. Hi,

      I have WordPress installed but I’d like to change the keys (long story why). Is it okay to do so? Thanks in advance!

    21. They always think because some one has a thin nose they are European? Every race has thin noses and wide noses and thin lips and big lips,everybody in this world but white people. They all have the same features and similar skin tones. I hate to break it to them but there is no such thing as European features,only them with there same lame features. The always assume you are black,because you are hating on them. Nope im not black im native american ty.

    22. Little green insects with black spots are eating my roses. Will Demon WP insecticide control them without harming the rose bush.

    23. Obama is going to be at my school on Friday but Obama’s people are not giving tickets to students, faculty, or staff. I don’t like Obama’s politics but I would never pass up an opportunity to see the President of the United States. Is he just using the small time school as a stage for looking out for the little people but the little people aren’t invited?

    24. I spend more time working on the software that runs my blog then I do working on the blog. What are the Pros and Cons between the two blog softwares.

    25. Or are they strictly used within the classical music or opera only? According to wikipedia, words like lyric, dramatic, coloratura, and other defining qualities should never be applied to a non-classical singer. Also specific kinds of voices like soubrette and spinto should not be used outside of classical singing.

      But I know there are some non-classical musicians and voice teachers who sometimes apply those terms for non-classical singers. I heard that most pop singers nowadays have lyric voices, like Norah Jones, Josh Groban or Beyonce. Jennifer Hudson and Tom Jones are both said to possess dramatic voices. Somewhere, I’ve read that Kelly Clarkson is a spinto soprano (really???). Wikipedia also classifies Whitney Houston as “dramatic coloratura soprano”. Aside from her, I don’t know any other pop singers who are said to have coloratura voices. (Okay, this is just some of what I have heard or read previously from/in various sources. Please do not attack me if you think what I said/wrote is wrong. I am open to any correction whatsoever).

      So tell me, do you think the terms “lyric”, “coloratura”, “dramatic”, “spinto”, “leggiero” etc can also be used outside of classical singing? Or are they strictly for opera singers only? And if they CAN be used for pop singers, can you tell me which singers who are classified within each voice type?

      Thanks in advance.
      Wow, thank you so much for the answers so far! You both have helped me a lot… =)

      I actually already know the definition of those music terms like lyric, coloratura, dramatic, spinto, soubrette, leggiero etc. I just wanna know whether they can be used outside of classical music/singing or not. That’s all.

    26. Not interested in Drupal or Mambo but prefer a MySQL PHP solution. Looking for login, profiles, blogging and ability to do some level of news personalization based on user preferences.
      Great resources so far. Does anyone know if any of these CMS applications work with Dreamweaver CS3 and the various plugins from Project Seven (projectseven.com). I’m on a Mac PPC Panther OSX.

    27. This summer I have caught and killed 6 mice and there is currently another one alive in my house. It’s obnoxious and gross and I’m not sure what else I can do but lay out glue traps. I have searched and searched but cannot find the source of where they’re coming in. Is it worth the money to call an exterminator? I have never had mice before.
      Not using any poison, I have a dog and don’t want to risk that.

    30. For the last three days I been feeling sick, got body ache, fever, headache, occasional nausea and the strange part: got blisters inside of my mouth, at least one under my tongue, two between my lips and gums, and 3 back between my gums and cheeks. Additionally my gums are rather sore.

      There is no coughing and no sneezing or runny/stuffed nose.

      Tylenol seems to be doing a good work at shooting down the fever and body ache and alleviate the mouth pain, but I really have to take it every 4 hours as it wont last longer.

      I just moved to the area, lived all my life in the Caribbean and am now in Tennessee, since I don’t have a medical plan yet (I basically just got started in a new job) I wanted to make sure this is not some common regional type of flu before I head to a doctor that will charge me ridiculous amounts of money just to tell me to take Tylenol for a few days and it should go on it’s own.
