Zempt and Plugin Manager
Posted on July 06, 2003 @ 15:49 in MovableType
Six Log mentions two great releases for MovableType users. I'm using a new weblog posting client, Zempt, to post this entry. It basically does the same thing as w.bloggar, which is allow you to compose your entries outside of MT's webinterface, thus offering some usability and interface advantages that are difficult to realize inside the browser window. Zempt however, is especially geared towards use with MT, offering some unique features, such as the "Post Options," that let you set the publish date, comments status and which URLs to ping. It's released at version 0.3 and there are still some features to be implemented, some polish to be applied, but it's already proving to be very useful. I hope the next release will feature better image support, resizable text entry boxes and more keyboard shortcuts (configurable of course...)
The other good news is that the first beta release of the MovableType Plugin Manager is now available. Installing plugins pretty much is copying the right files to the right directories, but the Plugin Manager will handle all that through a unified interface, check dependencies and allow you to update plugins easily. Hopefully the Plugin Manager will be included in the next release of MovableType, because right now, oh irony, installing the Plugin Manager itself is one of the more involved plugin installs.

Since MT-Blacklist inexplicably stopped working I had no other recourse than close comments and trackbacks to stop the spam. I've been meaning to correct this for quite a while, but life got in the way... in a good way I should add.
