MovableBlog: MT and Lynx

Nuance 2.0

February 5, 2003

I'm using my copy of MT from Lynx because at work, a telnet connection is the only one that seems to have any permanence. MT doesn't look too bad in Lynx: overall the navigation is fairly easy, but there is work to be done. [spacer.gif] blocks take up quite quite a bit of 'screen' space, which could be eliminated with a reliance on CSS positioning, or with a combination of alt and title attributes in the img and a tags respectively. Also, skip-to tags could eliminated some navigation weirdness.

Then again, how many use Lynx to blog? No, that's an honest question. Is it a big enough deal to make the MT CMS itself that accessible?

It's nice to know that I'm not the only one. I use Links in text-mode myself. I haven't tried in Lynx yet.

I'd love to see MT work well in that type of browser, or maybe just a text-mode blog client instead. I'd be happy with either.

Don't have Lynx, but would just like to see how it is, can you supply a screenshot of this page?


I will post a screenshot soon, yes.
