Worpress Migration

I’ve finally moved to WordPress since i wanted to in early april this year. I’ve been on Movable Type since mid october 2001 and i have to say it served me well, but due to the high amount of spam and always having to rebuild, i really needed a change. Now after importing 728 posts, i’ve got lots of house cleaning to do, not to mention editting the templates and adding back all my LINKS! Please give me 1-2 days to get all the links back up.

This brand new WordPress template i’m trying to create shows the latest 2 posts horizontally and all other monthly and category archives are shown 100 pst titles per page. Yes the font is very small & i like it that way!

So i think i’ve come a long way for blogging, from a simple text file in late 2000 to newspro to greymatter to Movable Type and now to WordPress. The whole blogging scene have change alot this past 5 years and we see now average people with no programming skills having blogs. The classic saying “Content is King” is still very true, its the stuff people post on their sites that make their site happening, not the programming… Like how James Seng mentioned, its going to be interesting to see the development of the internet in the next 10 years.

  1. I’ve been following your blog ever since it began. How fast time flies.

    I tried migrating to WP before, but I’m so used to MT and the available plugins that it’s hard to replicate what I want fast.

  2. Yup, i’ve seen you around for the longest time. Thanks for visiting. I also found it real troublesome to migrate, but when i’m unhappy, i need to do happy stuff like that. Again, tahnks for visiting.

    I’ve fixed the Archives links today and now i can work on my links. ;)

  3. Hi Nick,

    I chanced upon your site recently – and remembered that you were looking to give “blog” set up tuition.

    I am looking to customize the (convinince of the) WordPress functions onto my church’s website – for the news, events sections.

    Will you be able to help? Do you charge a fee too?

    I probably could do it, except that I don’t have the time to scour the code, and customize it.

    You can take a look at the template for my church’s website here: http://www.mpccnet.com/revamp. It’s still work in progress.

    As you can see, there are sections on the left & right, where I want to insert news updates etc.

    Free to help? ;) It’s ok if you can’t, just trying to see if I could get some help.

  4. Hey dude,
    Nice link to the James Seng blog. Reads like a SG WIRED and reminds me of my NUS IT studies. Will put up a news broadcast on this, along with a link to your blog too.
