A little hacking around

I finally got around to adding MT-Search, a nice consequence of upgrading to Movable Type version 2.64 and converting my database to MySQL. It's over there on the sidebar, between Archives and Categories. Seems to work nicely, but please do let me know if something funky happens when you try it.

I also added a couple of plugins to eliminate duplicate comments and trackback pings, both of which I found via Michael Croft. Each integrates directly into Jay Allen's MT Blacklist plugin, which is intuitive and neat. I tested the duplicate comment part and it seemed to work as advertised, but again, if you encounter any weirdness, please let me know.

Now I just need to ask Croft to share some of that MySQL Fu he mentioned so I can clean up my own existing comment/trackback dupes...

whatever you need, old bean. Especially since a large number of those dups are mine. What I did was semi-manual. I wrote a sql statement that gave me a list of duplicates and then I used the delete command.
