Movable Type is a web-publishing platform just like WordPress. Although it is relatively unknown in comparison to other leading publishing technologies, Movable Type is still being opted for manifold reasons. You have to consider something – almost all the web-publishing technologies include the same feature set. You are free to opt for one among them.
As a rule of thumb, it is better to concentrate on one web-publishing platform – instead of being another “jack of all trades”. I would strongly recommend you to test these technologies and select one amongst them – for the time being, allow me to demonstrate the features of Movable Type.
