Test from Ecto

Here is the first post from Ecto, which was one of the straws that made me want to switch. This is a sweet app which I shall be registering shortly.

The one thing I don’t like about how the import happened is that my category tree each comes in as the whole tree as the name. I can go back and change the names but I’ll lose the tree nature, which I kind of liked.

And lest I forget to post this, here is the docs I used to migrate from blosxom to WordPress. It was very simple and only took a few minutes.

    just a test to see if comments are working correctly after the migration. As you were, citizens of the blogosphere.

  2. A while back, there was a plugin for Blosxom that implemented an API that Ecto could talk to, meaning you could have kept Blosxom if that was the reason for switching…

    D’Arcy, that was far from the only reason for switching. Mainly, it was the fact that wordpress is a lot easier on the server box and makes things that are not simple in blosxom trivial. I’ve switched myself plus three other people, and everyone has been delighted by the move.
