ModCheck v3.0.0

Posted September 15, 2004, in Developer.


Have you ever tried to install a plugin on your Movable Type-powered site, only to not have it work, and be left wondering if a required Perl module is installed? Wonder no more. With MT-ModCheck, you can easily run a simple query right from the Movable Type administrative interface to determine if the module is installed, and often you will even be told what version is running!

Easily accessible from either the blog- or system-level plugin settings screen, you can pull up the check module interface, which allows you to easily specify the name of the Perl module that you would like to search for, right in the Movable Type interface.

Chad currently resides in Charlotte, North Carolina, though he is most definitely not a Southerner. In fact, he's lived in such varied places around the United States as Chicago, Seattle, and even Southern California. Strangely, no one considers Southern California to be The South. Nonetheless, he lives in Charlotte with his wife, kids, and an ever-growing collection of stray dogs. Several years ago, after leaving the corporate world, Chad decided that he would set up shop for himself and Everitz Consulting was born. There, he provides services related to Movable Type, TypePad and just about any other platform you might imagine, and has contributed community plugins such as the award-winning MT-Notifier, the acclaimed anti-spam plugins MT-Approval and MT-Moderate, the venerable MT-SomeDays, and a variety of others, all while continuing to offer network consulting to those who need it. In his ever-dwindling spare time, Chad also continues to blog at Don't Back Down, and also writes elsewhere as time permits. Which is to say not very often.
