Rolling your own CDATA

Saturday, February 15th, 2003

With MT 2.6’s new encode_xml, if you build an RSS feed with multiple tags in a single element, you need to do your own escaping in your template, and to make that safe, you need one trivial plugin.

Testing Adam Kalsey’s new plugin to intermingle comments and TrackBacks

RFP: MTSkipHours

Sunday, November 10th, 2002

If someone whose Perl skillz are a bit less lame than mine would like to do a Movable Type plugin that returns an RSS 0.9x/2.0 <skipHours> tag for a given set of local hours, that would be wonderful. I’m thinking along the lines of <MTSkipHours hours=”23-6″> which would then return: <skipHours> <hour>7</hour> <hour>8</hour> <hour>9</hour> <hour>10</hour> […]

CategoryTrackbackData plugin

Saturday, October 12th, 2002

Inspired by Kristine’s totally twisted idea of a bookmarklet-accessible category TrackBack URL for the index page, CategoryTrackbackData is a first shot at a plugin to add TrackBack RDF to your category archive pages. Download the plugin, unzip, upload to your plugins directory, and add <$MTCategoryTrackbackData$> or <$MTCategoryTrackbackData comment_wrap=”0″$> to your category archive template (outside the […]

Sanitary comments

Thursday, October 3rd, 2002

While I’ve never had a problem with allowing HTML in my comments (other than the time I left an <i> open), there are plenty of tags that I don’t really want anyone being able to post, not to mention that I really don’t want people posting PHP in comments. Thanks to Brad Choate’s Sanitize plugin, […]

Recent comments RSS 1.0 template

Friday, September 20th, 2002

Since there seems to be a bit of buzz about RSS feeds of comments today (even though it’s so last January), I thought I’d throw together an RSS 1.0 comment feed template to go with my (well, mostly Bill Kearney’s) RSS 0.91 template. Along the way, I added a plugin, since you can’t get at […]


Tuesday, July 30th, 2002

Tonight’s second plugin from the Ulrich Plugin Foundry is an interesting twist on TrackBack: TrackForward is a plugin to list the TrackBack urls that an entry pinged, for easy gathering by the next person to come into a conversation. This entry is pinging his, so the TrackBack popup will have an example of TrackForward in […]

Edit This MT Page

Monday, July 29th, 2002

I didn’t realize how much I was missing Blogger’s late, surprisingly not very lamented, “remote editing” feature, until I put in the other Phil’s new plugin, EntryEditLink, which links your choice of text (my choice being one of the pipes in the byline) to the page to edit your entry (assuming, of course, that you […]

Related entries plugin

Saturday, July 6th, 2002

From Kalsey Consulting Group and MT Plugin Foundry, a related entries plugin which gives you a container tag for “entries in the same category as this one” that you can use in all sorts of ways (Adam’s example is a list of the most recent three entries in the same category, displayed on an individual […]
