With luck I have now switched my blog from Movable Type to WordPress. I had taken a run at this some time ago and then decided that if I waited I could freeload on the work of others who would be making the transition easier, but a few months passed and it’s just as hard.
It’s not hard, it’s just tedious. Particularly getting my old links so they still mostly work. Reproducing my old formating; plus the usual minor upgrading, and getting all the mysql support working in the staging area and in the live site. Just work. I really like PHP My Admin for managing mySQL!
Now I can start discovering all the things that are broken. If you notice anything please leave a comment.
Curiously I discover I have about twenty posts I never actually published but left in draft form.
