I'm Running .TEXT

0 comments suggest edit

In case you’re wondering (and I know at least one of you is), my blog is hosted at WebHost4Life and is running .Text version 0.95 (or is it .96?). I chose it over DasBlog because of its SQL Server support, but I’m not sure that’s such a compelling reason given that configuration is such a pain. I’m hoping that Community Server will address many of the issues I have with .Text.

From reading the .Text newsgroups, it appears I’m one of 25 people on the planet to get it working. Ok, perhaps that is an exaggeration.

I created a custom skin for my blog a few months ago, but the logo was created by a talented coworker. I also use w.bloggar to post to my blog.

    Exaggeration? Hardly. It was easier and more satisfying to install Movable Type and apply a .Text skin by hand (editing all of the templates and some of the code).

    As another of the 25 who've got .Text setup on WebHost4Life I feel a whole lot better about my experience now. I've got a two part post on my blog that goes through what I did to get it setup.

    I'm also playing with the CS Beta 2 in the hope that the entire setup is a bit easier. I'd also like to figure out if it will be possible to port my .Text blog to CS:Blogs.
