Glue Plugin for Movable Type

Current version: 1.1 (7/12/04)

About the Glue Plugin

This Movable Type plugin implements a set of template tags for defining a section of text and/or HTML code as "glue" that will appear between items (entries, categories, comments, etc.) in a listing, and will not appear after the last item in the listing. The functionality is similar to that of the glue attribute of Movable Type's MTEntryCategories tag, although the way the plugin is used within a template is somewhat different.


To install the Glue plugin, upload the file to the plugins directory within your Movable Type directory. If you do not already have a plugins directory, create one before uploading the file. For more information about Movable Type plugins, see the documentation.


Please use the support forums for all support requests, bug reports, feature requests, questions, and comments regarding this plugin.


This container tag should go around the tag that will loop through the items in your listing—for instance, MTEntries, MTCategories, or MTComments. Within the listing, use MTGlue to specify the position and text of the glue itself.

The following example will insert a horizontal rule between your entries:

   <hr size="1">


This container tag encloses the text and/or HTML code that will be used as glue. It should be used within a listing tag such as MTEntries, which in turn should be enclosed within MTGlueContainer.


This tag is intended to be used within MTDateHeader. Depending on what your date header contains, it might look bad if your glue code appears after an entry that precedes a new date's entries—for example, your glue consists of an image but your date header begins with its own image, and you don't want the two images stacked on top of each other. In such a situation, use MTGlueOmitPrevious within MTDateHeader. This tells MTGlueContainer to omit each "piece of glue" that precedes a date header, as in the following example:

   <br><img src="dateheader.gif"><br>
   <b>Entries for <$MTEntryDate format="%B %e, %Y"$></b>
