Setting Publishing Options for Movable Type Templates in Batches

| No Comments | No TrackBacks |
Normally to set the publishing options of a Movable Type template, you would need to click the 'Template Options' link at the bottom of the Edit Template screen, then pick the desired publication method (static, background, dynamic...) and finally save.  If you need to set the options for several templates, this involves lots of tedious clicking as you need to open every template individually.
But just as with yesterday's post about publishing many blogs in one go, there is a quick and simple plugin that can save you quite some time: Byrne Reese's Batch Template Options plugin adds some extra dropdown options to the 'Manage Template' screen that will save you minutes of clicking.

It works both on MT4 and MT5, which is even better.  (It is not part of MT's core, which is a pity.)
