Blog

Stampeeeede!

The migration is on. smile

Any mu.nu users want to move to Minx, just comment here or email me (andrew -at- pixymisa -dot- net), and I'll make it happen.  I've copied the post from Munuviana into the extended entry for more details.

If you don't mind a fairly standard Minx layout - see my site, mee.nu itself, AZ Resident, Brickmuppet for some samples - I can get you up and running very quickly.

Also, it's easier if you don't use CPanel or your mu.nu email address; it will be another few days before I have CPanel and Minx playing nicely together. If you don't mind losing CPanel just for a few days I can move you right away and enable CPanel later.

If you'd like me to do all the work and just hand you the keys to a shiny new Minx version of your blog, all you have to do is post here or email me at andrew -at- pixymisa -dot- net. Posting in Minx is very much like MT, except there's a fancy WYSIWYG editor, so you can get going in your new blog very easily.

There are twenty standard themes you can choose from: Blue, Green, Grey, Orange and White just have colour gradients for the banner (see Brickmuppet for an example); Beans, Bug, Butterfly, Cheese, Chips, Clover, Fire, Gargoyle, Green Tomatoes, Ireland, Mountains, Rosebud, Saltnpepper, Sunrise and Sunset have nice photos (see AZ Resident for an example of the Fire theme). (I'll post examples of all the themes shortly.)

You can switch between 1, 2 and 3-column layouts at the flick of, well, a switch, so no problems on that score.

I'll also be available to help converting existing layouts and stylesheets and banners and so on.

If you'd like to do the work yourself you can export from MT and import into Minx. Again, just comment or email me and I'll set you up for that.

Oh yes, one other thing: I need to get the number of page impressions and ad views up for mee.nu and mu.nu to attract advertisting (and hence, money!) If you're willing to have a small banner add on your site (see my site), let me know. I'm more than happy to split the revenue with you, or if you're not interested in that (for smaller bloggers it might only be a few dollars here and there), we can pool the money and donate it to a charity. (I'm thinking the American Red Cross or Doctors Without Borders, but I'm open to suggestions.)

1 Cool.  I shall make it happen. smile

But you're 5th in line. wink

2 Sure, why not.  I like my computer banner best... ;-)  Please add my name to the list and your assistance will be GREATLY appreciated.  I'm even up for you adding a ad if you would like.  Though, I am a small time blogger so it might not be worth your time.  But you have been very kind and I would love to help bring in revenue.

The Pond would love to be Minxified, and will be more than happy to have a small ad, if it'll help in any way.  Being somewhat clumsy in the way of the backstage stuff, if you moved me, it'd be much appreciated. 

Would it still stay wonderduck.mu.nu, or would the address change?  It matters not, just wondering.

Thanks, Pixy, and happy b-day (I put a post up, but didn't comment here... oops)!

4 Thanks Wonderduck. smile

Yep, you keep your mu.nu address.  Though that is what's causing a slight delay - the cookies aren't quite working because the same system is now running across multiple domains (I think).  Should have it fixed today.

Don't know if the request from another post made it, but I'd like to be moved.  Please add the place(s) to advertise mee.nu you deserve the bucks after all the work you've done. 

I also don't need Cpanel for a while so whatever place I'm in line... go ahead and move GM's Corner, http://gmroper.mu.nu and let's get that critter movin' along.  smile

6 Damn those cookies... not only are they fattening, but one just can't live without them.  I was wondering what was going on.

7 Yes, sorry about that Teresa.  Loaded up your blog, happy happy, everything works, except that you can't log into it. sad

Shouldn't be too much longer, though.

8 Don't stress on my account Pixy... I'm always wondering what's going on.  *grin*

9 I'm in, whenever you get the chance.

10 Pixy, the register button in the banner is failing to appear (in internet explorer) at either mee.nu and at my site, just thought you might want to know.  Also how in the wrold do I get the background of my sidebar to be white without having it also turn the page margins to white rather than blue?

12 Sorry about that, Susie!  All fixed now.

Posted by: Pixy Misa at Sunday, September 23 2007 11:57 PM (PiXy!)

13 Thank you Darling Pixy! 

Posted by: Susie at Monday, September 24 2007 02:05 AM (OGAM5)

14 Pixy,

The dogs and I have talked it over and we're ready to move whenever you have the time.  We're also in for an ad.

Also, thanks for all the hard work you do to keep us all up and running.  It is much appreciated.

Howard
