Typepad will sort this out with a nice manageable interface (search would need to be Google or similar I think), or use MoveableType if you want to host it and manage a database yourself. MT has more plugs-ins, ie search.
PS - I don't have experience of using the other blog platforms, eg WordPress. Will leave those comments for somebody else.
Hey Phil. I think you should try WordPress. It's easy to install and use, does all the stuff you want it to and you can make it look and act exactly how you want, because of the best thing about it: it's open source!
BTW, you haven't been on Palimpsest for ages! Things have changed a bit recently...
Currently thinking about doing the smae thing for many of the same reasons - and due to lack of any new developments with blogger (it's becoming google's IE for me). Typepad seems like the best option, although domain mapping may also involve paying extra to get in enabled by your regitrar. Worth looking at iupload for something different though. http://www.iupload.com/
TypePad: I chose it, I really wanted to use MoveableType but that required me to do all sorts of things on the szervere (install MySQL etc) that my ISP was unhappy about.
Has its limitations, and I'd say go for MT if you possibly can, but it will do most of what you want. Sevice is pretty good, stats have been down a bit lately, but the help people are always nice.
PS: perhaps you should read this though, from Mena's corner
Thanks for the input everyone. The one that I had in mind was Typepad, so I'm going to explore it in a bit more detail.. watch this space!Post a Comment
