I’ve threatened to do it half a dozen times, and finally went for it. After fiddling for a while trying to fix a broken comments problem, decided maybe it was time to switch from Movable Type to WordPress. Playing with it more and more lately, and liking it more all the time (though it still lags behind in multi-user/multi-blog functionality, despite the beta existence of WordPress M-U).
Import process went pretty smoothly, after tweaking PHP’s max_execution_time and max_upload settings. But a lot is broken too – fonts on archive pages, polls, Image From Nowhere, random quotes, blogroll, image pop-ups… Jagged edges everywhere, and much finessing to do. But decided it’s OK to be naked in public sometimes, so will wrench in spare time over the next few weeks. A public experiment – pardon the dust.
Ironically, the MT blog was using a ported and hacked version of Aamukaste’s Neat theme. Now I’ve returned to the actual WP version of it and need to hack my MT mods back in.
