Nuked the Templates... Again

God, I hate Moveable Type.

Last night I tried to fix some issues people had with the comments. In doing so, I got some sort of "can't parse" issue over a "Categories" command. So I had to re-load the defeault templates, and wouldn't you know it, Moveable Type's default templates don't work either.

Eventually I figured out the problem was that I had to delete the entire section about "Categories," and then things seemed to work. But I don't understand how the "default templates" -- supposedly the basic templates, tried, tested, and true, have big bugs in them that require deleting big chunks of code just to get them to work properly.

So, having re-installed the basic templates, now my comments are back to not working at all. I'll have a go at it, and see what else I can totally fuck up.

I wanted to re-install my blogroll, but I was up late just trying to fix the site so I could actually post, and at some point I gave up. But I'll fix that at some point.


I can't take Moveable Type. For a program that touts its amazing functionality, you'd think that it would, you know, occasionally function.

Isn't That Just Swell Update: Well, now the only way to get the site to work at all is to delete the commenting feature completely. I know it's a popular feature, and it totally sucks that it won't work.

There is nothing at this point I can do. I give up.

I have contacted someone called WebDiva to try to fix this stupid frustrating piece of shit template and program. I am actually going to pay her some crazy blog-money. Some of your generously donated crazy blog-money, actually.

I just can't take it any more. I hate Moveable Type so much you can't even comprehend it.

Okay... Comments Are "Working" Again, Except You Can't Write in Your Name... Again: I'll continue to play.
