Well, since my upgrade to MT 3.0D hosed comments for the most part, I’ve been looking at other blogging options. There’s also the fact that, theoretically, I’d have to pay for MT with the blogs I have. I’ve since posted to MT’s website about my problems with comments. Needless to say, I haven’t recieved any help. Also, there’s the fact that there’s no place to download 2.661 anymore, eventhough 3.0 is still beta. Yes, that’s right, you can’t download a stable release of mt anymore. Plus, there’s no way to downgrade from 3.0D to 2.661. The only way I can really do it, is to export my entries, delete the db, recreate the db, reinstall 2.661, and then import my entries. Needless to say, all my site setup and preferences are gone then. So, basically I’m going to leave what I currently have up and running until I can decided on what to migrate to.
So far I’ve looked at Greymatter, WordPress, and ExpressionEngine. Greymatter just plain sucks. WordPress has potential, but as of right now, the one I enjoy the most is definitely ExpressionEngine. The only downside to that is that it’s not free. Currently I’m running a 14 day trial version of it at test.rebelpeon.com/ee.
Arg, decisions. There’s currently a few problems with ExpressionEngine, like that it won’t let me import my MT entries, but I’m sure it’s just a bug. Oh well, MT has left a very bad taste in my mouth, and I just want to get off it right now.
