Highly flexible and customizable, Movable Type CMS and blogging software is a recommended website building tool. Customers will be able to choose between a free download which is more recommended for personal use, and paid software which is suited for businesses and enterprises, and will enjoy countless add-ons and blog building tools, SEO and marketing tools and the service’s powerful and scalable CMS platform.
Movable Type also allows customers add-ons designed to help them track the traffic on their site as as to optimize their site accordingly, tools which include traffic source, feed stats and trackbacks. These features can be added by downloading and installing stat and tracking plugins from the developer’s site, free of charge. The one major drawback I could find where Movable Type was concerned was with its installation process. Since Movable Type’s software needs to be downloaded and installed and requires database installation, the entire installation process can go on for quite an extended amount of time.
Moveable Type offers a 7 day free trial for interested customers to try out their service. You can purchase the Pro Unlimited Plan for $999. If you are already a user, you can upgrade for $499.
Movable Type is a combination of open source CMS software and proprietary software, meaning that it is downloadable to your computer, but that it also highly customizable. A powerful CMS tool, Movable Type allows customers to publish anytime and from anywhere, with their mobile app and easy to use interface.
Also, Movable Type software proves to be very flexible, as the platform is scalable and easily scales to accommodate the growth and the traffic fluctuations of your site. Though it is admittedly very flexible, one of the software’s downsides lies in its having to update the content on a customer’s site every time a customer updates the site’s design, which can prove to be time consuming.
