Kicking Up Dust ...

The first effort to inject a Movable Type blog atop the old Spanner Wingnut blog was not entirely successful:

    • I did succeed in getting the blog to publish.
       
    • I failed to have the blog format properly, as if it couldn't find the template and CSS information - I got a raw HTML form of the blog post (see below).
         
    • The MT 4 image and any references to mt-static/ were to orcmid.com/mt-static/ and not the common location that I have established for the blog engine to use for all blogs operated on this single web hosting account.
         
    • The Trackback, Search, and other URLs were to a cig-bin/mt/ also in orcmid.com/ and there was, of course nothing there.

I now have improved on that by editing the mt-config.cgi file to establish absolute locations for the mt-static/ and the cgi-bin/mt/ to be used for all functions. 

There are still some problems.  I have been unsuccessful signing in to leave comments on Spanner Wingnut, for example.  I will need to make some simple tests to see what is and is not working.

Meanwhile, here is what my first effort appeared as:

At this point, nfoCentrale has one installation of Movable Type.  The idea is to use that one installation to implement all of the blogs operated on the different sites anchored on nfoCentrale. I'm expecting that to work because all of the... Read More

[2010-07-04T19:13Z cross-posted from Spanner Wingnut to have a consolidated history of the initial migration to Movable Type.  The problem here was corrected by aliasing the cgi-bin/mt/ and mt-static/ into orcmid.com and that seems to do the trick... Read More
