Some Big Changes

posted in: Site News | 3

I know, things are a whole lot different around here. I had tried, last night, to upgrade to the latest version of Movable Type, in an effort to add in some new features to the site that I’ve been mulling over in my head. However, that upgrade went horribly awry, only the latest of many such experiences with Movable Type over the last couple of years. Thus, I’m moving this whole she-bang over to a WordPress install.

Now, what does that mean for the site? Well, first of all, the actual location of the blog is different, because I added an entrance page (The importance of an entrance page may become clearer much, much later, but for now, suffice it to say, I wanted a place you could land, and be led to different areas, without having to get lost on the blog if that’s not where you wanted to go.) Permalinks to old archived entries should still work, however you won’t be able to leave comments on those or anything, they’ve become static pages really. All of the entries have been imported into wordpress however, so those archives will actually exist in two places now, one in the WP install, the other as static pages so that links to old entries don’t get broken.

There’s still a lot of clean up to do and some redesigns I want to make, as well as some of the new ideas I’ve got rattling around in my brain that need to be sorted out, but for now we’re back to being operational, which wasn’t the case last night or earlier today, so progress is being made, don’t you worry. 🙂
