Why is noone complaining about this Movable Type bug ??

| | Comments (2)

Movable Type 5.2.2.  Trying to mark comments as spam from the comments RSS feed - clicking on "junk".  Multiple spam messages on the one entry, so multiple attempts to publish to the same entry.  Get these errors:

Renaming tempfile '/path/to/page.html.new' failed: Renaming '/path/to/page.html.new' to '/path/to/page.html' failed: No such file or directory

And then the page is deleted until I go into the entries management and republish it.

This is so fricken fail.  And yet I can't find anyone talking about the same thing, other than the odd comment in people's blogs where people have obviously had the same problem when commenting on an entry at the exact time as someone else.

Is MT even in active development anymore? I don't expect things like this to be resolved with any amount of speed because the platform is pretty dead. Still, it functions well enough for me, so I've been hanging on rather than wasting time converting to something new. At the rate blogs are folding, there probably won't be much to choose from soon anyway.

Not sure. Yeah I'm a bit too scared, well put off by the hard work really, of switching to something new. What version are you using?
