Migrated to WordPress

I have finally managed to migrated to WordPress. Database statistics inform me that:

There are currently 1,884 posts and 479 comments, contained within 22 categories.

As of now I am still fixing minor glitches here and there, but major things work. Just to let you know what is broken:

  • Permanent links. They are not working yet at all. Fixed.
  • Old links. None of the old links are working. Partially fixed. All of them won’t work anyway. Let me know if you find anything that I missed.
  • Users. I haven’t created any except for amdin account and myself. Feel free to register though. Not a bug. My brother managed to register all by himself, thus there is no problem.
  • Thumbnails. Some pictures come out in their original size and thus really mess up the look and feel. I will attend to this problem shortly. Too much editing required. Only new posts will have proper thumbnailing. And those that I will fix manually. Please complain.
  • Google Ads. I don’t yet have it installed. I will fix the temlate very soon. Fixed. Google Ads will now appear only on full item pages. This should improve the click-through ratio due to better ad suggestions. Keep clicking.
  • Blogroll. WordPress has an excellent tool for maintaining a blogroll, but it is not very useful to me, since I have mine at BlogLines. I’ll fix the exporting script shotly. Fixed.

  1. I have successfully registered and this feature seems to work fine :)

    The only thing is that the theme of the site is different from the theme of the “user zone”, so if you want (and you have enough time) you may try to make everything look the same :)

  2. Constantinos, I like WordPress a lot more. I had a test installation for another project of mine and felt that I just have to run my blog on it. The migration is not that easy though. I wrote my own script to migrate posts from Nucleus to WordPress. I will be posting it shortly.

    I suggest that you try it on a separate installation if you can before the move. Something tells me though that you’ll like it. :)

    Anymore news on this? I really want to change…(Sick of Nucleus)
