I just found Arvind‘s Movable Type Style Generator.

Boy, is this thing cool.

I’m working on a new stylesheet for this site, you can see what I have so far here. It needs some more work, and I may try to do a three-column layout for it; I want something that still feels like this site, but that looks a little more updated.


I started over from scratch there with a new three-column template, so ignore the colors, that’s all gonna change. I started working on getting the side-bar content ported over. Some of it’s easy, the new templates are a little more intuitive in some ways, but I got stalled out with the category and calendar bits. Calandar because I need a good example for a 3.2 calandar (the new MT docs STILL suck for examples), and the categories because I want a pull-down menu like I have with the old template. Issue is, MT’s category system is a lot more complex than it was so I need to delve deeper to port that to my pulldown.

I also need to fix a lot of the archive templates; the permalink/individual archives look ok (not great, but ok), but the category and date archives are still scrod.

Yes, I’m geeking out really bad.

  1. Hmmmmmmm I’m feeling your pain of last week. Haven’t been able to access multiply for about a week.

    Meanwhile I hear my company website has had a spike to 2- 3 gigabytes a day. Somethings fishy. Not gonna be able to retain my “cute girl” server price long at that rate.
