All the old website content going back to 2003 has been imported now, along with all the comments. The only downside to adding in about 885 entries is that a full site publish takes about 15 – 20 minutes.
On a related note, Movable Type really needs to update their import documentation. The import format is FAR more strict than the examples make it appear. For instance, the BODY: key cannot containing any trailing spaces. Same thing with the COMMENT: key. These two issues forced me to have to reload the entries several times before all the data would load completely.
Still, with that out of the way, I’m free to get back to blogging.
P.S. What’s the point of a Backup and Restore functionality that doesn’t actually have the ability to Restore?
