I Am So Frickin' Awesome

Alrighty - everything seems to be working now. I have the whole site under Movabletype's control, but I have set it up so that everything is generating as a PHP file now. I also created a new index template that generates just the code fragemetn needed for the sidebar. The templates for all of the other pages now have a php include statement that pulls in the code fragment for the sidebar - voila - the sidebar is now always up to date on all pages without having to rebuild the site.

Now, I know that most people who will ever read this could not care less about the intracies of how this site works, but for the one person that does a Google search trying to figure out how to do what I am doing, this will be very useful.

Now I think I can pretty easily put together an Amazon Assistant template that will auto generate all of the CD Collection pages, which will not actually be under movable types control, but will still look like they are - they will use the same stylesheet, and they will pull the sidebar info from the code fragment generated by Movabletype.

Considering that I have no idea what I am doing, I am pretty frickin' impressed by me.
