I just upgraded to Movable Type 4.0, and after a few snafus (that I admit were entirely my fault), I finally have it up and running.
And holy hell, is it ever beautiful.
Not only does it look completely different (and much better than previous versions), but it seems to have imported all of my settings and templates! That’s how software should work. Don’t force me to do more work than is absolutely necessary. I always appreciate it when a software upgrade automatically removes/replaces the old version of the software so that I don’t have to go uninstall it myself. The same is true here. I was reluctant to upgrade because I expected it to take a long time. The only part that took a long time was uploading all of the files. Once that was done, installation was a breeze.
Now, this post is the first post using v4, so I’m just assuming that everything will work. It was a “clean” install (in a new directory, not overwriting the v3 files), and everything looks like it transferred over, so hopefully it all works as expected. That having been said, if something is wonky, let me know.0 People like this. Be the first!
