Uninstalling the Sanitize plugin
Again, these steps are only necessary if 1) you installed the Sanitize plugin on your pre-MT 2.6 blog; 2) you've since upgraded to Movable Type 2.6 or later.
- Locate the 'sanitize.pl' in your Movable Type plugins directory. Delete that file.
- Locate the 'sanitize.pm' file in your extlib/bradchoate directory. Delete that file.
Now, you may be wondering what to do about the
sanitize="..." attributes you have scattered all over the place. Well, MT now has a 'Sanitize' field in the blog preferences you can use to define the allowable tags/attributes. This will be applied to all comments, foreign trackback data and so forth. If you use this preference field, you no longer need to add the 'sanitize' attribute to your MT tags. You can still use the 'sanitize' attribute if you ever want to override the default settings.
There is also a new mt.cfg configuration setting named "GlobalSanitizeSpec". If you assign your list of tags/attributes here, this will be used for any blogs that don't define their own Sanitize settings.
For more information about the Sanitize function in Movable Type 2.6, I invite you to read the fine manual.
