I’ve been working on moving this blog over to the WordPress blogging engine. I’ll write some more about it, but basically I’ve written a one-off program that loads the blog from the Movable Type database and generates a file I can import into WordPress. It makes sure the links track, cleans up some bad HTML, and fixes a lot of little things. The best part is that I can empty out the WordPress blog and run the import over and over to iteratively test the process.
However, once I start actually using the new WordPress site, I’m stuck with it. Repeating the import would wipe out new posts and new comments. So before I commit to the new site, I’ve got to be pretty confident that it is mostly working right. Among other things, that means spot-checking posts to see if they look okay.
There are over 1900 posts, so I could use a little help with that.
Anyone out there interested in volunteering to peek at the new Windypundit site and examine a bunch of my posts to see if they’re formatted OK? I’m not talking about proofreading, just looking to see if the text looks normal, the images are present at the right size, and so on. If you’re willing, email me at the address in the sidebar on the right.
