I’m in the middle of moving my blog from WordPress 2 to Typo 4. I’ve got the articles imported, and the migration script took care of that part. It also grabbed the categories I had and turned them into tags — too bad I wasn’t using WP categories; I was using Jerome’s Keywords. So now I’ve gotta go in and pull the keywords out of the metadata and connect them with my Typo posts. I also need to pull in the comments (for some reason they didn’t come in with the migration script). I probably messed something up there.

I did modify the routes.rb file to mimic the permalink structure I had with WordPress. It was important to keep my existing links workable (especially feed references), even if the new ones use a different format.

It also didn’t seem to pull in my podcast episodes. I’ve got a few simmering on the back burner right now, but I guess I need to figure out how to make the feed again before I put together another one.

I do like the personalization options this screen has, though the default font titles don’t handle non-Roman characters like this one. It’s not a big deal, though, since you can switch the font choice in the “personalization” section of the header to see the proper title.

So overall, it hasn’t been as smooth as I would have hoped, but it isn’t the end of the world either. I’m pretty happy, and I’m running Apache 2 + Mongrel now. That’s gotta be more fun. :-)
