Thanks to comments by “Francois Jordaan(Francois Jordaan’s weblog)”:http://www.fjordaan.uklinux.net/ on a topic concerning CMS Needs over at the “Measure Twice Weblog”:http://kalsey.com/blog/, I found a couple of interesting articles related to the use of MovableType as a simple CMS system. “Stopdesign”:http://www.stopdesign.com/ covers the “use of MT”:http://www.stopdesign.com/log/2003/07/11/adaptive_paths_mt_setup.html as part of the “Adaptive Path”:http://www.adaptivepath.com/ redesign. Meanwhile, “A Whole Lotta Nothing”:http://a.wholelottanothing.org/’s article “Beyond the Blog”:http://a.wholelottanothing.org/features.blah/entry/007162 gives some very clear examples for the use of MT for static-page generation. I’ll probably be following this for my About pages…
At work we are trying to move our content management in-house. Our current website is a JSP-driven affair, with well defined areas where we want our staff to upload content once a week or so. MovableType should let us do that – I’ll just have to write a custom Tag to grab the individual archive files and embed them.
