More than five years, Movable Type Professional Pack (Professional Blog Template) kept the position of main theme for kokeb.net with flexibility over multiple column design for PC-based web browsers. The advent of mobile and portable devices triggered the transition to convert existing HTMLs to mobile aware ones. The completion of those small projects made me chuckle with happiness that I attained higher degree or depth in Movable Type manipulation. On the other hands, I should have spent most of time to wrestle with my poor taste in design, templates, and codes instead of putting high quality blog posts.
Recently, I completed migration with the template, called Rainier. It will switch styles dynamically based on types of devices or browsers accessing the blog; No need to keep two types of HTMLs for PC-based or mobile browsers as I did before. All DNS and web server configurations fixed accordingly, such as m.kokeb.net, kokeb.net/m, kokeb.mobi, and so on, not to make search robots grumble.
The last screen shot with professional pack is as follows.
Regardless of criticism or pros/cons dispute toward Movable Type, it has stayed long in my hosting space since the year 2005. Today, MT 5.2.2 got populated.
Once I came to control this platform at my fingertip, upgrade process was one of consistent and easy procedure without any burden because of not only comfort in its use but also no dramatic change in core components I had been using. This was the case with today's upgrade; just code upgrade.
Then, I realized that mobile template (called, Rainier) started to ship with Movable Type AT LAST! From now on, anybody (including me) can generate Movable Type blog compatible with mobile devices.(Movable Type 5.2.2 has been released!) I did not convert my blog with new template today but will do some day. Let's enjoy.
