Bringing AJAX to Movable Type

By Scott

Just a quick note on a new feature of our blog.

We’ve leveraged AJAX to allow site visitors to rate the importance of each blog post, and have added the functionality to allow visitors to sort posts by importance.

We did this by creating new plug-ins for Movable Type. The feature has been architected using the ASP model, and a combination of CSS, PHP, MySQL, and AJAX.

We have the ability to provide this to other people, and are thinking about it. If you’re interested let us know by commenting:)

Until then – we’re going to continue tweaking it and will find new ways to leverage it. If you have any ideas we’d love to hear them.
