I spent most of my weekend migrating from Movable Type to WordPress. Movable Type has been the blogging software behind Cynical-C for the last three years and worked fine for two of them. However after 3 years, 5,747 entries and 12,430 comments, it seemed that Movable Type just wasn’t able to keep up. Posting an entry and commenting took much too long and rebuilding the site when I changed the template was near impossible. Several people recommended WordPress to me so I thought I would give it a try. So far I am quite happy with it and have turned on caching so that they dynamic pages wouldn’t kill my server. I’ll probably have to do some more tweaking but it’s a learning experience so that’s to be expected.
If you are using RSS Feeds with Cyn-C, they may not work anymore. I’ve decided to do the RSS Feed through Feedburner which will still have full content.
