My only real disappointment so far with TypePad has been the lack of “stories” — what Dave Winer and the Userland folks provided in Radio Userland for creating static web pages off to the side of the primary weblog pages.
As it turns out, I had a bunch of stories pages on my Radio site — none of which made it across in my port to TypePad.
Over on Movalog, Arvind Satyanarayan describes his approach to publishing static pages with Movable Type — close, but no cigar, for us TypePad folk! You can actually apply Arvind’s techniques to TypePad blogs — but only after converting to using Advanced Templates. Here’s hoping static pages ala “stories” come to TypePad sometime soon!
