Amazing – I’ve been putting off this wordpress upgrade for almost a year and a half. Turns out I only needed about an hour and a half to get it done, with most of that time actually spent waiting for ftp processes to finish.
Finally! On top of making WordPress work in under an hour (take that, Movable Type!), I’ve also got a Photo Gallery working too! Sure, it needed a few minor script fixes, but it only took about an hour to figure that out compared to four weeks of failure with Movable Type. I’ll post an update soon once I finish updating all my recent photos.
So far, the new new site is up and running. Hopefully it will stay that way. There may be a few “flukes” in the system right now, like permissions errors, but overall it’s just as good as Movable Type with, I hope, more stability.
After all the difficulty of the past week, it would be interesting to find that Six Apart’s Blog It works better with WordPress than Movable Type.
