Terrablogs to Upgrade to MT. 4 (finally!)

Fellow Terrabloggers, our long sojourn in the blogging desert of MT 2.6x is coming to a close. On the weekend of the 6-8th of June we will be upgrading the Terrablogs domains to Moveable Type Open Source version 4.

MTOS 4 is a fantastic blogging platform with an impressive array of features & plugins. You can learn more about them at http://www.movabletype.org/

The upgrade isn't going to occur without some hiccups. There are after all some 1731 total blogs across the various Terrablogs domains! The weekend of the 6th through 8th and in the weeks following we will be standing by to help you fix any bugs or bumps that arise in your templates. Most of your pages will work just fine, and you will continue to log in just as you have in the past, only when you do you'll see all the great gadgets and gizmos of the most up-to-date & powerful blogging platform available.

Many thanks,

The Terrablogs Team

Will all of our existing URls stay the same? For example will this URL: http://officespam.chattablogs.com/archives/070120.html
stay the same after the upgrade?

All of your URIs should stay exactly the same after the upgrade.

All the URLs were rewritten in the upgrade. May I please have access to my .htaccess file so that I can 301 all my old urls to the new url?

This is going to create a real duplicate content nightmare. All my pages now have two unique urls.

Check your template list. You should now have access to your .htaccess.

MTOS 4 seems very smooth and I look forward to getting to know it better. A couple things I don't quite get. There is code that appears before the top of each photo that I can't figure out. Also, I don't like that if I want to load multiple photos in each entry it automatically drops the code at the top. I hafta read between the code to find the beginning and end of each pic. How do I get the picture to drop at the point in the entry where the cursor is?

Um, the new style didn't seem to work on my site, and I don't know how to fix it. see okie.chattablogs.com.
