Tinkering with Typepad (Movable Type)

Blogging technology is a piece of cake. TypePad powers my blog, and this product is very well done.

The only two things that I can’t find are:
* An automatically-generated table of contents. “Recent posts” only puts up the last ten posts. I need something that will go back to the very beginning.
* I want to do a “Dear Abby” column in which people post questions, and I answer. These can’t be comments tied to a specific post because they would get buried. I’d like to create an archive of questions and answers that people can search. I looked at a couple of Wiki products, but I didn’t have the mental energy to adapt them to my needs.

I think I know the answer to the first thing.
