If you are a Movable Type user and use Cutline for your blog, let me know and I will add you to the Cutline for Movable Type showcase!

"Cutline" is a blog theme created by Chris Pearson, that I adapted to work with Movable Type 3.x's default templates a while ago. However, when Movable Type 4.0 was released with a slightly modified HTML and CSS hierarchy, that theme broke.

Today I am happy to announce that the Cutline theme has been updated to work with Movable Type 4.x. My work is not complete as I am sure there are still bugs that remain and tweaks that are needed.

If you would like to help me test Cutline for Movable Type, I would be very grateful. To install Cutline on your Movable Type blog, you will need to:

  1. Refresh your blog's templates to the "factory defaults" so to speak. (Use the "Classic Blog" template set)
  2. Navigate to the Styles section under the Design menu.
  3. Add the Cutline Style Library to Style Catcher by cutting and pasting any URL in this blog into Style Catcher.
  4. Movable Type will then download all the necessary files into your installation and allow you to apply Cutline to your blog.

That's it. You don't even have to download anything. Movable Type does all the work for you.
