I wanted to take a moment to gush all sorts of lavish praise about MovableType 2.0. I love the new interface. I love that I can now ban IPs from commenting. I love how fast & easy it was to install. I love it. Love, love, love it. I love that I can rearrange the MT entry page as I wish. OH! And now when you upload a photo you can make a thumbnail of it at the same time! How is that for cool? Yes, the list of things to like goes on & on. I just read Candi’s post about how long it takes for her to rebuild her blog. Yes, the 2.0 rebuild takes a little longer for me then 1.4 did because now it rebuilds 40 posts at a time. That said, I can do a FULL rebuild of *1480* entries, including individual, daily, weekly, monthly, category archives plus the regular index templates, in under 2 minutes. I timed it earlier when I added the daily archives to make the calendar links display all of the posts for a certain day, not just one. Under 2 minutes is not bad when it comes to that many entries. Other blog softwares would have taken … oh, they would have crashed at about 600 entries, who am I kidding. There are bug fixes that 2.0 addresses. I think it is well worth the upgrade. It was fast & painless, and the latest & greatest ROCKS!
