First Big WordPress Question

OK folks, here’s the first thing I do need help with. I’m not sure if it is a WordPress issue or an Ecto issue, but when I publish these posts, they are categorized as the category I select as well as Uncategorized each time, even when I pick only the one category plus set it to “primary.” What’s going on here, and is it an Ecto issue or a WordPress issue?

Update: Adriaan of Ecto left a comment that points to the solution, and the bug is in the WordPress XML-RPC code. That explains why it only happened when publishing from Ecto and not using the web interface.


It’s been tough to do the import of the blog to WordPress early this morning and then lay off it all day since I, like, have to work and stuff. Maybe this evening I’ll spend a few minutes browsing plugins and such. Expect a lot of turbidity in themes and stuff in the sidebars over the next few days as I get it how I like it. I’m in the market for good 3 column themes so I’ll be looking for those. Thanks for those who have volunteered WP advice. I’m sure I’ll be needing some.

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.
