Moveable Type blog tool to get a face lift
August 19, 2005
http://weblog.infoworld.com/techwatch/archives/003781.html

At the conference for business blogging attendees got an early look  
at a tool designed to help their businesses better manage blogs.

Six Apart's Anil Dash gave a preview of the new Moveable Type Version  
3.2 Weblog publishing platform on Friday here at the Blog Business  
Summit in San Francisco.

According to Dash's stats, Six Apart's platform powers more than 10  
million blogs around the world.

The new version of the platform coming out next week will include  
more features for administration, ease of use, and community management.

Version 3.2 will include a new section of the application that  
provides a system overview, Dash said. This is designed to help  
administration of multiple blogs.

"It lets you view all the information in the system no matter where  
you published it," he said. "Everything is in one place."

The system overview link shows every blog post title, which Weblog it  
was posted on, and time of post.

Comments and trackback improvements were also added in Movable Type 3.2.

The publishing tool will automatically filter comment or trackback  
spam and delete spam after a set period of time. The announcement of  
this feature drew a few shouts of appreciation from the crowd.

Older blogging tools had a problem with what Dash calls "silent data  
loss." This is when valuable trackbacks and comments were mistakenly  
filtered as junk.

"In the old days silent data loss was a big management burden; you  
had no way to know who's building your community," he said.

The new version also lets users retrieve false positives from the  
junk folder.

The context sensitive search feature knows where you are in the  
application and lets you search for and replace any item across all  
your blogs.

For example, in one step you can update the look and feel across all  
your blogs.

Another cool feature is that the user manual is a living document  
that allows comments from bloggers, which are subsequently reviewed  
and used to help improve the document.
