New blog infrastructure

I decided that I needed to update the platform for this blog.  It had lived under a WordPress instance that was managed by my hosting provider, and I kept it there due to simple inertia.  However, I’m going to upgrade my hosting package, and that meant I needed to address the old blog platform, as that’s an option that was being left behind.  So, I’ve migrated (mostly) the blog to an up-to-date WordPress platform that I’m managing.  I’ve still got some link and image issues that didn’t come across cleanly, and I need to clean that up.  However, I think I got all the posts, though there were some glitches with the import.  I was getting an error, but found this post that described how to take care of it.  I think I’m going to declare that this is the new production version.  Onward!

    So far, it looks like the “damage” in the migration is a loss of categorization…posts did not assign to their categories…I guess this is an “opportunity” to recategorize 😉

    One other thing is that some thumbnails did not get embedded in their posts. It appears that the thumbnails *are* in the upload directory, I just need to edit them back in…not sure why it seems so random.

    One more thing…I’d used the old default permalink structure (with numbers) which got off-sequence during the migration. I’m now setting it to use posting name, but I have to go in and update my links again…however, it’s for the best, I think…
