|Once you have your site
architected you need to change a whole slew of settings. You can do some of these as you create the blogs.
Since I like capitalization in the url, and since I use short URL names, I tweak the subdirectory name.
I set time zone to Pacific. For less "bloggy" blogs, where I will not be creating the pages in MTs entry box, i delete revision history.
Otherwise I set revisions to "2". There is no need to create a giant bloated database by saving 20 revisions. Software types use needless
complexity to make you feel stupid. There is no need to do it to yourself. Competent blog writers only need one or two "undos" even if
every programmer needs a million.
||By creating these blogs, all
I've done is create a sub-directory. Since I have not published anything the sub-directories are empty. This was handy when I realized I wanted a
sub-directory called Archive instead of Archives. Using the settings tab in the particular blog, I changed the blog sub-directory. I could
then use FileZilla ftp (file transfer protocol) program to erase the old sub-directory that the system will no longer use.
By creating the blogs in the above order I get the subsequent
blog IDs assigned by the MT software. This will be important in the table of contents page for the whole site, since that ID is how you can
refer to each blog. That way, if you change the blog name later, it will change in the contents page automatically.
