blogging problems

I recently upgraded to movabletype 3.0 and everything seemed to go quite smoothly, but as it turns out commenting was totally broken, so apologies to anyone who has been trying to comment.

MT seems to have an amazing ability to look like its working fine when lots of little things are broken in the back-end. I nearly had a heart attack when I looked in the apache error log, 1 whole megabyte of errors. Anyway I’ve opened up commenting again, and am taking advantage of the ability to moderate comments (sorry spammers).

I’m also considering moving over to wordPress, its a php/mysql open source blogging tool, which has some very attractive features:

  • no rebuild, edit a template and its live
  • Full web standards compliance
  • Integrated blogrolling features
  • Integrated XFN
