I had “skinned” my site while still using Greymatter. Then the time came when GM couldn’t handle my 500+ entries, and I moved over to MT. I could never quite figure out how to use some of the features that MT offers though along with the skins. Until minutes ago. All of the sudden – POP! Some of the techniques that Jennifer used when she helped to set up the Pixelog would work perfectly. Kristine had sent an e-mail explaining a similar process to me, but I just couldn’t get it. I couldn’t work through the steps and figure it out. Until now.
So to test it out, I opened up MT, made a new index template, named it mtcalendar.php and stuck in the code for the MT Calendar. Then I went into my Skin #1 (in case you are viewing this in a different skin and wondering what I am talking about) and added the PHP Include to retrieve mtcalendar.php – and there it is. Damn. 6 months that I have wanted to do that and just now I finally got it! The lightbulb is on!
