All squirty tips must go, half off. I’m taking The Sac Rag to the WordPress platform this weekend, which will take care of that nasty timeout problem on the comment script that we’re experiencing with Movable Type. This is pretty big for me, as I’ve been a Movable Type customer since 2000.
What this means for you is that I’m going to universally turn off comments before I leave work today, and move all content up to that point to the new system. The design will be the same for now, but there will be neat WordPress enhancements, especially “Subscriber” level registration for readers which will mean you can create a login that will follow you as you browse and post comments (no more typing your name and email, it’ll say “You’re logged in as so and so.” Somebody should signup for an account as “so and so.”)
UPDATE: Comments are now off. Check back soon for your new WordPress version.
