Yeah. Movable Type is acting up. I was getting weird characters where there were spaces or when I was putting in the degree symbol. I think I have the setting adjusted correctly now.

So, when I bring up a new entry page, there is automatically some funky HTML code inserted that I do not see when in the Rich Text editor. I did not copy it, so I can not show what it is. But it looks funky. I just delete it because it makes no sense. It does not affect my publishing of any entries, so I am fine there. I will try to see if I can get it to return and then I will publish it for you all to see.
Here it is:
<div nuan_tabactive="true" id="nuan_ria_plugin"><object id="plugin0" style="position: absolute; z-index: 1000;" width="0" height="0" type="application/x-dgnria"><param name="tabId" value="ff-tab-1" /><param name="counter" value="41" /></object></div>
Anyone have any idea as to what the hell this is all about?
Okay, managed to get Movable Type upgraded. Not a whole lot has changed other than the icons in the tool bar for editing.
Update: Okay, I have also added a larger Blog Roll, as well as removed the comment and archive widgets.
Update II: Okay, I also eliminated a certain large internet company's widget, which has since resulted in a quicker page load. Interesting, that.
Oops! I forgot to give thanks to MB for the source code of the Big Blog Roll. Actually, a little self disclosure here; I stole the code without first getting his permission. I am a bad, bad Rook and will now go stand in the corner where all bad rooks reside.
But when it comes to managing blogrolls, I relied on BlogRolling because it seemed none of the people smarter and more educated about Movable Type were interested in developing a blogrolling widget or plugin. I understand that BlogRolling wanted to make money, but that few of the people actually paid for their service. I kept meaning to, but I was financially strapped, some months not making the rent.
So, here I am, now stuck with losing my blogrolls, with no easy means of saving them (blogrolling never created an export feature so that you could create a text file of the links), and not wishing to spend hours copying and pasting one link at a time, I am stuck with eventually learning to create a means of managing and developing new rolls.
See what I mean about being in a basket?
