    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 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..

    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, a site on music news + useless opinion. If you need any help with MT get in touch!

    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 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.
