From MovableType to WordPress

October 1st, 2006 | Tags: , , ,

Through a few hours of work this weekend, I transferred the site to WordPress from MovableType. It’s not perfect (not that it was before I started the transformation), but hopefully it will be better.

  • Initial install (and upgrades) are supported in a one click process by DreamHost
  • The management UI is laid out much better (possibly because only one weblog is supported)
  • Plugins for almost everything

Bad Points:

  • Multiple Installations–one for each blog that I am running
  • The management UI is not as refined
  • Uploads of pictures are much harder (and I will probably end up writing a tool on my end to make them happen).
  • A good preview mode is lacking.

I’ll probably have more to say as I get into it a bit more. Let me know what you think.
