If you want to optimize your weblog for Google ranking you should take care of a couple of rules. The correct choice of delimiters for filenames is important.
If you want that the filenames created by Movable Type also support umlauts you have to extend a plugin. This sounds difficult. But even I, not knowing Perl, have succeeded.
Movable Type knows templates and entries. Inside the templates the structure of the HTML pages is described. Inside the entries there is the content for those pages. Unfortunatly the tags, which are used in the templates, are forbidden inside the entries. But there is a way out.
When designing your templates you will soon have the need for conditional generation. Unfortunately Movable Type does not support this sufficiently. But if course there is a plugin.
There are several techniques for avoiding spam completely or at least making life difficult for spammers. One possible solution is based on the MT Approval Plugin.
In Movable Type, we use tags for defining the flow within a template and for accessing the database. You can influence a tag's behavior with the help of attributes. These attributes define a value for some parameter. Unfortunately, the value for an attribute may only be a constant. However a plugin can help with that.
In Comparison needed for conditional Generation I showed how to use the Compare Plugin for managing variants of a page type. The plugin allows comparing values and optionally executing one or the other code segment. The simple condition "if one value equals another value" is just the beginning. We are also able to create complex conditions. It is not even that difficult.
