Anyone here experienced in installing this bad boy?

I'm looking to install it on my server as a CMS for product reviews and whatnot.

Let me know if anyone can lend a hand..


thanks

Well. I'm not neccessarily stuck on anything.

Just not from a programming background and wanted to have someone walk me through a setup or something.

it's kinda hard to walk you through it. just move real slow with the documentation included. if you get stuck, just ask.

it's a blogging script that is extremely flexible. i use kung-log (http://kung-foo.tv) to write my entries on my mac and upload them to the cgi. i honestly think that it's the best blogging stuff out there at the moment.

I finally got everything installed. Just a matter of learning about templates. Shouldn't be too hard.

This script is amazing actually. VEry powerful..

Hi,

hmmmm... you missed the gallery?

that does bring up a good point to me that i really don't have anything on my main page to let the visitor know why they should stay.

thanks CmdrLaForge

I love Movabletype.... I use it to run Buzzgrinder (http://www.buzzgrinder.com), a site on music news + useless opinion. If you need any help with MT get in touch!

i'm wondering if your site is *supposed* to display about 400 pixels wide

On a related note, for those of you (us) who would like to use Movable Type but aren't so technically inclined, there is TypePad (www.typepad.com). It's a service run by the people who created Movable Type which lets you create and run a Movable Type site with a minimum of technical knowledge. Set up is very simple yet quite flexible. Plans start at $4.95 per month.

I signed up for the 30-day free trial a few days ago, and am really impressed with it.

As an example, Mac Mike (http://www.mac-mike.com) runs his site on TypePad.

OK. I get it. Your site is about the gallery ? Right ? Just to be sure...

And what is the gallery good for ? For nice wallpapers ?

It took me about a day or so to familiarize myself with MoveableType and after that it's so easy. It's extremely customizable and easy to work with.

I enter my entries online, I find it easier that way.

Just check my link below.
