Here we are on WordPress

Well it’s taken me half a day but it was fairly painless. I’ve ported over about 80 blog entries to WordPress and put some 301 redirects in the .htaccess file to redirect the old MovableType URLs to the new ones. I had to install a number of WP plugins to get things working the way I wanted. This included AuthorSure (for Google+ authorship), Google XML Sitemaps, NK Google Analytics, Responsive Lightbox, WordPress SEO, and WP Syntax Highlighter. I must say being able to seamlessly upload images from within the WP editor and markup code directly (without having to remember codes) is fabulous.

There’s still a couple of things to sort out, mainly to do with the logo. But I am sick of doing this today so I’ll leave it for another (more motivated) day.
