MT Geek Help Needed

Filed under: unlisted — suzanne henderson @ 5:36 pm

Okay, I finally got everything inserted into MT. But now I have the problem that I want to still use Fishy/Epistolary. Before, I simple typed in “[Rob|Rob Carlson]’ and used a php parse function to look up Rob Carslon, and put in the link to that page with the text link being ‘Rob’. (got that?)

But I can’t seem to find where to edit


or how to go about using the parse function. I’m under the impression that I won’t be able to use php anymore since it won’t work within the cgi format (or whatever geeky-technical term there is for that). So, sigh. I really don’t want to learn perl to do this, but will if that is my last option. Oh, and I also don’t want to change the way MTEntryBody works for the other blogs I’m running on MT too, so it has to be blog specific as well.

I should have looked up this problem before going to the effort to change to MT. I might have just stuck with my current system instead.
