Template Author != MT Expert

While I really appreciate it when people drop me an email saying how much they like my (much neglected) Movable Type templates, and appreciate it even more when that email also include a PayPal donation, I’d like to point out that I’m not an all-out MT and HTML boffin. While I’m happy to sort out basic issues with the templates, or blame them on IE, please understand that I don’t know everything about running a blog in MT. I’m still learning every day, and I’ve been using it pretty much daily for over 18 months now.
I can offer you one really useful piece of advice though: RTFM. No, seriously, the Template Tags page in the MT Manual is excellent, and it’s how I’ve learnt most of my 1337 MT $k1llZ. And if you get really stuck, do a forum search of the MT Support Forums. Usually I’m never the first person to experience the problem I’m having and someone has already posted there and been given a solution which works.
