That wasn't so bad

I think the blog is up and running successfully on the new server. It’s working for me, anyway. And after long fiddling with Rewrite Rules, external permalinks and the old RSS feed URLs are transforming themselves to the new system.

Since WordPress seems to have Technorati-style tagging built-in—something I had to handle by hand in Movable Type 3.2—I’ll be adjusting the templates over the next few days to accommodate the new information. [Update WP has tags, but they don’t seem to create Technorati links.] Once I get comfortable with that, I may turn the comments back on.

It’s easy to do too much blogging about blogging, but I think what I learned in going from Movable Type to WordPress would be useful to others, so expect a post or two on that topic once I’ve settled in.
