With version 3.0, Movable Type can manage plugins, adding links to documentation and configuration pages on the Main Menu page. There's also a new callback system that enables plugins to be called when data is loaded or stored, a feature that sounds a lot like the hooks I've been using to extend the functionality of Radio UserLand.
Because plugins must be written (or upgraded) to work with Movable Type 3.0, Six Apart has offered $20,000 in prizes for a plugin developer's contest. Entries must be received by July 6.
I had an idea for a contest entry this weekend, but I've been felled by an unexpected provision in the contest's eligibility requirements:
Residents of Florida are not eligible.
Does anyone know what we did wrong?
