Editorial Reviews

The Barnes & Noble Review
Movable Type makes powerful web content management accessible to nearly anyone. It’s cheap (a personal, single-user version is free.) But you need to know quite a bit to set it up, and then use it to the fullest. Rogers Cadenhead walks you through all that, simply and in plain English.

Step by step, he covers preparing your web server, getting the needed infrastructure and security in place, initializing the software, and quickly customizing its default site. You’ll walk through writing entries, organizing weblogs, publishing images. Next, he shows how to build template-driven sites that can be updated and redesigned in practically no time.

Cadenhead covers everything you need to build a world-class blog or news site, from trackback links to search, importing Blogger entries to syndication. The software’s impressive. This book makes it far more usable. Bill Camarda, from the January 2005 Read Only
