Migrated to Wordpress

Posted on Mon 02 November 2009 in general

I've finally gotten around to migrating the blog to Wordpress. While I'm still very happy with Personal Weblog it was getting a little long in the tooth and given Livejournal's ongoing problems with syndicated feeds I thought it would be easier to host everything (including comments) on my site. You can see the very ugly migration script on github.

The one remaining thing to do is code up some re-directs in the original news.php page so the syndicated feed still slurps up something, but there is no rush I guess seeing as LJ isn't currently paying attention.

EDIT TO ADD:Well LJ may not be paying attention but I've implemented the redirect for both normal pages and RSS feeds. Old permalinks should continue to the old page.
