Movable Type

MovableType is a highly customizable weblog applcation. An administrator can add multiple posters who can then create their own weblogs. Authors can post and edit their weblogs as much as they'd like.


MovableType can be used with, or without a database, which is what will determine which plan you need. The advantages to using a database are: easier to maintain, more stablility and speed. With a fairly small site that gets updated infrequently, a filesystem based (non-database) account should work fine.


  • Highly customizable, yet works out of the box
  • Doesn't require a database
  • Simple comment system works great for small sites


  • Doesn't scale to a large number of users
  • Not a good choice for applications other then weblogs
