This post will be rather boring for regular Movable Type or WordPress users. But we Nature Network bloggers are new to this stuff.
Create and edit blog posts from standalone applications
Successfully tested MarsEdit and BlogPress.
Store pictures on blogs.nature.com
Hint: a scientific paper is hidden in here.
You can also store other files with Movable Type, e.g. PDF files.
Trackbacks were originally invented for Movable Type. They show the links to your blog post. I haven't really used them much on other blogs.
We now can edit the comments on our blog. Can sometimes be helpful, but is also dangerous. Linking to comments is now much easier (click on the date).
The new blog URL is so much nicer (and easier to remember): http://blogs.nature.com/mfenner.
