Brave new world
I was getting unhappy with the amount of spam and general issues with b2evolution so with a suggestion from Chris, I've decided to try out MovableType. Since they just release version 3.2 and are offering a discount this looked like the best time as any. My first reaction is both positive and negative. On the good side the interface is very nice and there seems to be lots of power under the hood. On the bad side, and this is really disappointing being new to the product, the documentation is abysmal!
In fact almost every "?" help box on the new blog entry page leads to a web page that simply says "Coming soon...". I wouldn't be surprised if this was an open source product. However, being commercial software that I've paid money for, that is just not acceptable. I've already logged about a half dozen complaints and suggestions related to just their installation blog entries and documentation. I can only hope they do something, otherwise I'd be tempted to get a refund.
Complaint number two. There probably is a module or add-on for this, but where is the spell-checking feature?
