Moved to WordPress

Between last night and this morning I moved my blog to WordPress. The biggest technical problem I had with the import was that WordPress doesn’t recognize CDATA elements in RSS. I was able to mangle my RSS file to get it to work.

I still have a lot of work ahead of me to complete the transition. So far, I’ve manually copied over the comments from this year’s posts, but I still have over a year worth of comments missing. I don’t know if I’ll ever get around to copying them all. I also have a ton of broken links from posts referencing other posts. I don’t know how many off-site links I may have broken. For now, the old version of my blog can be found at /aaron/oldblog.

Once I fix all of the major problems, then I can start working on a custom theme. I liked the old look, but I’ll probably make some changes while I’m rebuilding it. Google ads may turn out to be a thing of the past. If you have a subscription, here’s the new feed link.

    Hey! This looks like my color scheme, you theif! 🙂 Also, you’re missing a paren before “requried)” in “E-mail required)”.

    You’re right about the missing paren. I don’t know about the color scheme. This is one I just found on the Featured Themes page.
