Testing Things Out

| No Comments

So I finally (again) installed MovableType 5.12 on a testing subdomain. (If anyone out there wants to check it out, comment and I’ll make you an account.) Basically I didn’t like it previously. I didn’t like the fact that I had to have both a website and a blog. So I ignored it and updated this version when security issues were plugged up.

It appears that MovableType 5.12 has allowed me to create a blog without a website this time around. I do sort of like the layout, although I am used to having navigation at the top instead of on the side.

I’ve noticed that for me it’s a little slower loading. It seems to take a few moments for the system to realize I clicked a link and then when it gets to that page, everything is loaded, or so I think. The little circle on Chrome is going nuts switching from the refresh button to an x showing that something is still loading. I’m not sure what, though. And while I look at the status line at the bottom of the page, it looks like it is trying to load Zemanta, which is something I disabled on this version after being annoyed with it repeatedly. Perhaps a permission wasn’t changed during the upload…. It’s telling me it isn’t able to do its thing. Ok, I had to change permissions on a file, silly me.

I’m currently copying this post to the test blog to see how it turns out over there. I just might download all of my entries and so forth and upgrade all of the blogs to 5.12 if I can truly create blogs without the website option. Ahwell, almost time for me to leave for work. So I shall play some more later and decide in a couple of days. Later.
