Gotta try this!

Creating an MT-Powered Photo Album

If you have not already noticed, the Photography section at has been completely rebuilt. So, what’s the catch? I’ve used nothing but MovableType to manage and update the entire thing.

After reading “Beyond the Blog” at A Whole Lotta Nothing, I was very intrigued at the thought of using MovableType as more than just a weblog app. So, last night I sat down, made some scratches on a couple post-its, and proceeded to recreate my photo album entirely from scratch. Here is exactly how it was done.

The first step was to figure out which MT fields would stand for what data. I needed a thumbnail photo, a full-size photo, a title, and a category.
