My Blogs v1.0

By Arvind Satyanarayan
Posted August 12, 2007, in Administrative Interface.


Movable Type 4 introduces a whole new dashboard with the focal point being tracking the activity across your blogs. For my personal MT install, however, this isn't terribly useful (being the only author, I know my - albeit dismal - entry posting frequency, and I receive email notifications for all comments).

I much preferred Movable Type 3's dashboard which provided a list of all blogs in the installation with a few quick links. My Blogs adds a widget to your dashboard which allows just this.


Movable Type versions: 4.3

Arvind, you rock. This makes things a lot better for me and the way I maintain my sites. Thank you for this.

I need to get off my duff and donate - you make some seriously cool stuff.

There’s an apparent conflict between two excellent dashboard widget plugins for MT: [DashOff][] and [MyBlogs] []. They don’t play well together—if you use one, the other won’t show up.

[DashOff]: “DashOff plugin” [MyBlogs]: “My Blogs plugin”

The conflict is in their respective perl files, and, which are bundled with the plugins.

Both of them use variable with the same name: my @blogs / $blogs, and my $perms / $perms

Assuming that you want to use both of them at once (who wouldn’t?), you need to change the names of these two parameters (perhaps only the first, but I haven’t bothered to test that) in one of the two files.

Therefore, in for instance, you should change every occurrence of $blogs to something else, like $blogset, change my @blogs to my @blogset; and similarly change my $perms / $perms to my $perms2 / $perms2

Once you’ve done that, both work together.

Actually, this is not the reason for the conflict. The conflict occurs because DashOff has a bug whereby it specifies the same unique identifying key for the widget it provides as MyBlogs. To resolve:

  1. Find the line that reads my_blogs => { about line 37 on
  2. Replace that with dashoff => {

I really like MT 4 instead of the fifth series. I haven’t upgrated it yet even the security issues I have to deal with. MT 4 is a piece of great job.

It’s good to know that the new Movable Type 4 initiates a whole novel dashboard with the focal point being tracking the activity across your blogs. I think it will help to ensure the security of each site. internet providers

Blog is always useful tools to share ideas, content, products to many people. I like blog 2.0 more because it is the background that helped me develop in the beginning. The address I like is: I often go here to find the blender that I love.

Accidentally I have seen the post and I came to know about a new plugin. I have gone through your post but I did not get any informative contents from your post. It seems to be null. Try to add some more uses and benefits of the plugin. What are the features of this plugin? Update your post. tours in amsterdam
