iMT - iPhone Interface for Movable Type v1.11

By Six Apart
Posted September 10, 2007, in Mobile, Smartphone.


This plugin automatically provides a customized and specially designed user interface for Movable Type 4.x and 5.0 users accessing their Movable Type installation via their iPhone or iPod Touch (should also be compatible with Android-powered phones).

Works great! Easy install. Simple and efficient interface.

I use it with my iPod Touch and it works seamlessly. When I got a flurry of comments while traveling, it was a piece of cake to look at them on my iPod using the wifi at the airport and just make sure everything on my site was under control. I can’t ask for anything more from a plugin than peace of mind! :)

Any chance this could be extended to include Custom Fields? I know asset uploading won’t work but being able to add content into custom fields would be a big plus.

I also really want to be able to get to the templates via this interface, but I expect that is asking too much!!

Note that MT 4.2 requires version 1.02 of iMT.

Noted on MT 4.2 Upgrade Guide

I want custom fields for iMT too. I’m not a Perl expert, but this is on my list of hack projects. iMT is GPL so anyone can work on it.

Perhaps you might be interested in doing some interface work for iPhone versions of each custom field type?

Code can be found in the SVN repo and a TRAC view is also available.

Thanks for providing this. One thing that I would like to see is the option to have multiple categories within a post. You can only do one on the dial with no option that I see to go back and do additional ones.

Another thing I would like to see if being able to use images that are already present on the site. I do like to include an image with every post and frequently reuse images from previous posts.

It does work though. :)

Hmmm, I could have sworn that I leave a comment here.

I would like to see the ability of using images that have already been uploaded. That and being able to use multiple categories.

Thanks, -drmike

This isn’t working so well for me. The login screen looks beautiful, but once I’m in, my entire MT interface is blank, except for the page header and footer. It looks like this:

|   Movable Type   |
|                  |
|                  |
|                  |
|                  |
|                  |
|                  |
|                  |
|                  |
|                  |

This is version 1.02 of the plugin, and my server is running MT Pro 4.24. Any advice?

i have the same problem as Jason. just a blank screen after logging in.

i’m using an ipod touch with the 3.0 update and MT 4.23.

Joshua Kaufman on July 6, 2009, 4:05 p.m. Reply

Same here. Seems like a recent MT upgrade broke this plugin.

Zingbot on July 8, 2009, 7:41 a.m. Reply

The last MT update killed this for me, too. Any updates coming? I was pretty reliant upon it.

Seems like a glitch in Safari Touch in iPhone OS 3.X.

It seems the incompatibility is easily fixed by modifying mtstatic/plugins/iMT/css/iphone.css

Look for the css rule for “.menu a” and comment out the first line (which sets overflow). The result should look like this:

.menu a { /* overflow: hidden; bug in safari on OS3*/ display: block; float: left; margin: 0 14px 12px 0; width: 62px; height: 90px; color: #999; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none; }

That worked for me great. Also - I really need the blog interface to support more than 10 or so blogs. We have 27 in one installation - and the main select a blog doesn’t seem to support that number. Maybe there’some way to see all - or browse for more but I can’t figure it out.

Does this not work with MT5? Just wondering. After I sign in I just get a blank screen and I didn’t know if it was just me or an incompatibility issue.

hi-fi hillary on January 10, 2010, 5:32 p.m. Reply

yup. not working with MT5. sob.

hi-fi hillary on January 11, 2010, 1:03 p.m. Reply

it doesn’t work with MT4.2 either (using iMT 1.02). what gives?

Paul Trunfio on February 1, 2010, 12:18 p.m. Reply

It’s a good plugin. But there appears to be no ability to reply to user comments on blogs through this interface. Is there any fix for this that any of you know about???

Paul Trunfio on February 1, 2010, 12:19 p.m. Reply

Oh, and, yes the fix that Seiz proposed above does work perfectly. One tiny little comment line!

iMT 1.1 has been released and it now supports MT 5, the Nexus One, and fixes a handful of UI issues.

iMT v1.1 works great with both mt v4.x series and v5.01.

Installation instructions need clarification. There are two folders within the zip directory and the readme file does not give specific instruction as to what to do with each folder.

QUOTE: “Drop the files included with this plugin into your Movable Type directory (under the mt-static/plugins/iMT, plugins/iMT locations)”

This needs clarification — what are the “iMT locations”? I assume given the filename tree of the folders, that essentially it should look like this:


And that contained within this directory should be: - css [dir] - images [dir] - js [dir] - - tmpl [dir]

If this is the case, why not simplify matters and just include all the files within the one folder in your zip file (mt-static/plugins/iMT/…) and get rid of the “plugins” folder.

If this is incorrect, then instructions need clarification.

This is a great plugin, I can manage my blog with my mobile phone finally!

As there are a lot of spam, if a check box can be added before each comment so that I can select all the comments I want to spam or delete (just like gmail do for the mobile clients), it will be perfect!

Podobnie, doszło do spekulacji o możliwym końcu niedoboru złota. Złoto jest główną walutą w grze, ale jest to bardzo trudne do osiągnięcia, ponieważ to, co można dostać za wygraną i co dostajesz po otwarciu kasy nie wystarczy, aby poprawić karty. Uznaje się zatem spodziewać, że deweloperzy łatwiej uzyskać najwyższy złoty piasek.

Dulu saya memiliki pengalaman yang unik seputar dunia parenting, dimana anak saya yang berusia 2 tahun sulit sekali makan, kebanyakan bermain sehingga badannya terlihat kurus, sempat khawatir juga sih. Udah nyobain berbagai tips dan saran dari teman-teman termasuk info yang saya dapatkan di internet, tetapi si kecil masih aja menolak untuk makan seperti biasanya. Akhirnya walaupun awalnya kurang yakin dengan saran teman saya yang menganjurkan untuk menggunakan suplemen vitamin laperma platinum , namun sarannya tetap saya coba, setelah beberapa hari si kecil sudah mau makan lho, akhirnya anak sehat dan sayapun senang. Beberapa hari ini lagi bingung nyariin pensil warna yang bagus untuk anak saya yang berumur 3 tahun. Dan setelah cari informasi disana sini kayaknya produk pensil terbaik untuk anak jatuh pada produk Staedtler deh, itu menurut saya. Mengapa demikian? Pensil warna staedtler luna warnanya lebih terang, kesannya lebih alami, dan tentu saja sangat aman buat anak saya, disamping itu pilihan warnanya lengkap, sehingga sangat cocok buat anak untuk mengasah daya imajinasinya bermain dengan warna-warna. Anda sedang membangun took online yang permintaan dan orderannya mulai banyak sehingga takut pelanggan Anda tidak mendapatkan produknya tepat waktu, jangan khawatir karena ada Jasa Logistics Terpercaya di Indonesia yang akan menjawab kegalauan Anda dengan layana yang cepat dan tepat, dijamin bikin Anda puas deh pokoknya gunakan saja jasa PT IMS logistics, perusahaan ini tentu sudah berpengalaman di bidangnya karena sudah 46 tahun eksi dalam jasa logistik di Indonesia.
