WordPress may be coming soon. I hope.

I’m experimenting with WordPress. I have it up and running on a system built from spare parts, but importing from this archaic blogging platform that nobody uses (and for good reason) is less than obvious. A filter exists but isn’t officially blessed, so you can’t just go grab it like you can for a common blog platform like Movable Type or Greymatter.I’m going to look at it all again when I’m less tired. It may be possible to just take the importer and turn it into a standalone program that just slurps the database over and puts it into WordPress format. It’s probably been eight years since I did any PHP coding at all. But I have everything to gain from the move.

As far as I can tell, this server and this software have been running for 8 years. That’s a good run, but it’s too long. It’s time to modernize. Time to use modern software, running on a system that was built in this century.

    I run WordPress on multiple sites and I love it. Very
    customizable, very configurable. If I can help you in any
    way, let me know.

    I ran my website off a proprietary cobbled-together
    script before I installed WordPress. Since my old posts
    were all in a plain text file, I think I just cut/pasted
    them into WordPress, an ordeal that took a couple of
    days but fortunately I only had to do it once.
