Movable Type

Is your business an enterprise level business that has more than a half dozen different content types? If so, then you might want to use a dedicated CMS rather than Movable Type. Movable Type is best used on small / medium sized businesses and is not the best solution for a full-fledged CMS. If you're using your content for something other than just displaying a website, then it's probably not for you. Movable Type works great for news/blogging sites. In fact, Daring Fireball, one of the most popular Apple-centric blogs is using Movable Type as its publishing platform.

A big pack of sample templates comes free with software installation, and all the designing options have been provided as per the latest web design trends. Templates made in TemplateToaster make clients say, “wow, it’s amazing”. TemplateToaster is a designing tool as well as a development tool. In short words, it provides a GUI for designing templates, after the accomplishment of designing, the template can be exported into a fully-fledged web template, which is ready to use as a website design.

Pros

Movable Type

  • Easy to use straight out of the box, very user friendly with an intuitive interface.
  • Great for team use where there are multiple editors and writers fixing and editing each other's works. It's easy to track who last made the latest edits.
  • Stellar support team and system. I've found that Moveable Type's support system is generally more responsive and helpful than WordPress.

Cons

Movable Type

  • Especially on the older versions, the limited number of well-developed third-party plugins is problematic for efficiently developing a well-functioning website.
  • Versions of movable type which didn't allow pages to be constructed were difficult to create continuity in design and easily editable pages for our editors.
  • The installation process could be simplified to make it easier for those new to a CMS to install.

TemplateToaster

  • It is not available for MAC operating system.

I think there are still improvements to be made. I haven't tapped in to the full functionality of the CMS yet but the rating I give it now is only based on what I've been able to use it for

Return on Investment

Movable Type

  • Provided a blogging platform when we needed one.
  • Helped us compare other blogging platforms as a baseline for what minimums we require and what we don't want.
  • Users often refused to use Movable Type and would go around our official system in order to use my more friendly software.
