After several weeks of struggling with Movable Type, I've finally finished revamping my fanfic archive with a pretty new layout:

Many thanks to the lovely em_meredith for hosting me at HealthyInterest and getting me started on the MT stuff! Now I just need to write some more fic so I can enjoy how easy it is to update!

It's beautiful, Sus! And you've got some excellent stuff here. Now that I'm more familiar with the Buffy and Angel worlds, I'm rereading.

You are so sucked in to that fandom now! Mwahahaha!

Pretty! And now Em's playing with mine so I can have pretty MT too. Wheee! :)

Thank you!

Very nice layout! I love the design.

You should write more VM fic.

Thank you! I'm trying to write more VM but it's not coming. I need new episodes to inspire me.

I could have sworn that I saw a commercial saying there were new episodes starting this week, but alas, no.

Also... if you feel so inclined, you should really get right into Doctor Who (now that it's gonna be on SciFi) and write 9/Rose fic, or Captain Jack/Rose fic, or gen, or 9/Jack fic or whatever.

I just got the Doctor Who DVDs yesterday, so I'm going through a bit of a thing here.

Don't worry, I've already got my TiVo season pass all set and ready to go. I've been so excited for it I've actually kinda been hoping BSG would hurry and finish up its season so I could finally see Doctor Who.

It's so addictive, I've watched 5 episodes just today. Christopher Eccelston is so strangely charming. And "Rociscoricofalipitorious" is really the best name for a planet ever.

Of course I spelled "Raxacoricofallapatorius" wrong. Thank you Wikipedia.

The layout's almost as pretty as the fic inside!

Thanks, sweetie!

Ok, now that you are an expert, can you tell me how you get all your stories to appear on the main page? Mine only shows those posted that month. You gotta click on the past month to see the others.

They are all indexed on the main page, but it'd be nice to have the full title + description there too.

It's hard tell you exactly what to change without looking at your code, but essentially, somewhere on the main index template is a tag, probably with some kind of qualifier, like "days=7", that's telling it to display the entries from the last 7 days (or whatever). I've got mine set to display the 8 most recent entries, no matter how old they are, so my tag says:

As em_meredith has probably warned you, though, don't do any mucking around with your templates without saving a backup first.

Okay, that would have made more sense if LJ had actually displayed the code instead of being confused by the brackets. Urgh.

So, you're looking for a MTEntries tag.

Mine looks like this:

MTEntries lastn="8" sort_order="descend"

And now I'm pretty sure I'm not making any sense, so feel free to email me if you want me to try to explain it better.

Mac and Beav!!!! OTP!!!

You are so totally adorable with the mad Mac/Beav love. But then, who wouldn't have mad Mac/Beav love?
Mar. 10th, 2006 01:29 am (UTC)
Nah, I think I'll just e-mail Em and ask her. For one, I don't want to risk the wrath because two, I know I'd screw it up
