This Isn’t A Test


MoveableType of course supports extended entries. I’ve never made use of it though—until now. I’ve begun to feel that I occasionally restrict the length of entries because I didn’t want a huge treatise appearing on the front page, so using the extended entry part is an obvious solution made harder by the way I have this blog set up. No matter though, it seems to be working now.

The problem wasn’t anything too major but did mean I couldn’t simply use to insert the extended entry. I’m using Brad Choate’s KeyValues plugin to store information about mood, etc. that appears on the individual entry archive pages. The problem is that the key pairs are stored in the Extended Entry field (had I had more foresight I would have used the keywords field, but hey). In practice all this means is I had to use <MTKeyValuesStripped> in place of <MTEntryMore>. Also had to remember to do things like collect links from the extended entry too. Also sorted out the atom feed into something a bit more sensible.
