(Well, besides “Dump it and go with WordPress”. You already know that.)
Basically watch out for dashes when you import/export posts. The text file you import is separated by 5-8 dashes in its features, so if you have some yutz who writes:
“Here are my thoughts:
blah, blah, blah blah”
It is going to screw you up if you ever import that post back INTO MT at a later date.
Elsewhere on my site, I am recreating my entire Whuzzup archives (going all the way back to 1998), and I am triple-checking all my “import.txt” files. What a bitch.
Then I’m switching to WordPress. I was successful with SoApBoX, and I really like HAVING my stuff on a MySQL database. (I hate CGI).
More news coming up for comic book fans next…. STAY TUNED!
