About one month ago, I spent each evening in the course of one week, fidling with Movable Type 3.11, TextPattern 1.0RC1 and WordPress 1.2.1. Idea was to check the features and choose the one I will upgrade to. My goals were to:
Use dynamic publishing
I grew weary of daily, slow static republishing using MT 2.6x, each time when one spamming whore managed to pass through MT-Blacklist
Use nice URLs
I have changed my URLs once and realized I did brake a lot of links while doin' nothing to make them easier to guess. I want to use
Build custom templates
I want to craft my own way of index and archives display + have enough freedom to build custom pages for examples
These are the impressions I wrote back then.
