Tweaking

I have a long list of things I want to do with the site. A lot of it has to do with content. The table of contents page was really just a place-holder 2 years ago, and every other page (except this one) is desperately out of date.

But I also want to make a few tweaks to this page. I’ve been doing little, unnoticable stuff (e.g., hover over one of the comments links that has comments in it), but I don’t have time to do the stuff I really want to do.

Ultimately, if I had some time off, I’d want to do a ground-up redesign of the site, but since no one has said “that’s really ugly” lately, I’ll probably just leave it. Actually, a lot of people seem to like the design, but it is in some ways my least favorite iteration.

    I know the feeling. My page is filled with empty sections. I’m thinking that I should just get rid of them and just leave my blog until I put some actual content in the other sections.

    I still occasionally entertain the idea of making the switch from GM to MT – is the comment/hover thing just for moveable type blogs?

    It’s nothing fancy. There is a variable in MT that allows you to list author names for comments, so I just dropped this into the “title” section on my main template. I don’t know what variable Greymatter gives you to work with, but I suspect you can do something similar.

    If you want to wait a little, I’m trying to get blogs.buffalo.edu set up at some point here, and I hope to run it on MT.

    Also, I think Greymatter is ideologically correct, but I think MT is pretty cool. Some of its features (e.g., trackback) are really wicked cool. And there is a large install base with active contributors in terms of mods, etc..

    What is really needed is a feature grid for the major contenders in blogginess.
