Plugin Party!

Okay, I think I've finished installing plugins for MT 3.

Here's what we have:

Plugins we already had on MT 2


New plugins for MT 3
Koala Rainbow (this looks really cool; can't wait to play with it)
Conversation Killer (an auto comment-closer)
Bits and Pieces (create your own template tags!)
Markdown & Smartypants
Enclosures (a tool for managing images, sound and video)
W3CValidator (validates your web pages automatically)
DateTags (and MoreDateTags)
CheckLinks (warns you of broken links)
Collect (does... stuff)
Columnize (easy two-columning)
Oh, and MovableJive, just because. ;)

One of the neat new features in MT3 is a listing of installed plugins, and most of them even have links to the documentation! Not that anyone will ever read it, but it's nice to know it's there.

I don't even know what any of these things do but it doesn't stop me from wanting them all! Thanks, Pixy!

Does this mean that we are all moving to MT3?

I'm clueless as well but terribly excited!

Yay! I have some reading to do to figure out a few of these. KoalaRainbow? FirstNWords? Oh my!

RP, we'll be moving one blog at a time, I think. I'll move this weekend, and once that's done I'll have a better idea what's required.

What a sweet list... DropCaps, YAY!

We don't need no skinkin documentation!

After having to go back and turn off all the comments on my old typepad site (which I have paid for thru January) the Conversation Killer sounds WONDERFUL!!! Thanks Pixy. :)

But will any of these fershlugginer plugins make blogs remember my info?!!!


Sorry. :)

Not one of those, but we have a couple of things to help us out there.

First up, TinyOrwell which is a replacement for TypeKey. See my post on MuNuKey.

Second up, I've installed MT3 under the domain, rather than as a separate subdomain like I think that this will allow cookies to work the way we want.

Just added SomeDays.

Oh, and I forgot to mention Outliner.

My excitement is only tempered by my ignorance.

My ignorance is not getting in the way of my excitement in the least! I mean, really, if I ever let it do that I'd probably never get excited about anything blog-related.

Thanks, Pixy!
