New Digs

My new blog is up and running, and I was able to move my old posts with surprising ease to the new blog. Thanks for those folks who were able to post how to do imports into WordPress. I essentially used the Exporter tool that exports Radio Userland to Moveable Type, and then I used the import-mt.php script to import the text file Exporter.root created. It worked like a charm, and I now have my archives.

I still need to relocate on things such as Technorati, Blogtimore, and some other blogrings. I also need to import my blogroll. I am digging this WordPress experience, though. Nice, snappy interface.

    First! First! Awesome. Love the clean style and the new moniker. Man, you, ACW, Fool – I can’t keep up with y’all. Hmmm – might have a teeny problem with your word wrapping in the comment section. I keep losing the last few letters in the right hand margin. Oh! There they are.

    Linda: I am still working around some various sundry items as far as the WordPress configuration is concered. Comment moderation is nice, as is the anti-spam plugin I am using.

    I do notice, though, that there are some things that I do not quite have yet. For example, I am not getting email notification of comments, even though I have the appropriate setting enabled in my blog. I need to work on that, along with a few other things this evening. Of course, that will happen after my evening workout.

    Glad you like the layout. One of the reasons I wanted to go to my own domain was for the ability to customize the user interface (UI) of my blog. Radio was nice, but it did not lend itself to easy customization. Also, I have been exploring WordPress as the blogging tool of choice, and I have to admit I like its snappiness and imminent tweakability. I could spend hours tweaking things on this blog (and I already have).

    I have always wanted to go the hosting route, and the coming expiration of my license for Radio Userland forced my hand. Also, there is something to be said for using something that is web-based and does not require that I remotely access my home PC merely to update my blog.

    Did you have a lot of images attached in your Radio posts? I jut converted from Radio to WP too, and republished Radio to an archive folder and found it bfroke all the links to images I’d uploaded to Radio then linked to.

    I don’t have a lot of images in my Radio posts. In looking over my imported archives from the last couple of months, any images I had came through just fine. Also, most of my images were not attached. They just referred to other images via http://radio.weblogs.com/xxxxxxxx/foo.jpg.

    Getting the comments out, though, is going to be an interesting feat. I still need to figure out how to make it possible (as I have seen on other WP blogs) for users to subscribe to both posts and comments as separate RSS feeds.

    Wa-hoo. Thanks for the post. I just imported all my Radio entries into WordPress.

    Here’s my post on it. Thanks! I include info on the broken path problem.
