Upgraded to MT4 September 23, 2007 at 2:05 pm
I took the plunge and upgraded the system to MT4. Boy is it a lot different, and a lot more powerful.
I spent some time over the whole week in order to figure out the differences from the older versions, and I had a lot of learning about how css works. I’ve really wanted to dig into css for a long time now, and this was a perfect chance. I tend to learn how things like this work by trying and working off examples vs just reading tutorials or HOWTOs.
Things I really like: The widget sets. With the templates, the whole sidebar is now just an include statement to include my sidebar widget set.. and I can re-order how things appear, or add/remove things by just dragging and dropping:
I did lose one thing from before that I did like.. the ability to list amazon items recently read or being read… or at least I haven’t figured out how to do it with the new 2.0 beta of the MediaManager plugin.
We’ll see if I keep up posts much (if at all) and how I like (or don’t) the new software as time goes on.
