Please excuse me while I attempt to resume normal transmission.
I’m hacking around replacing MovableType with WordPress at the moment, mainly because MT have decided to start charging for their new version. A lot of people (who generally are much more informed than me) have had a lot of things to say about that, so I won’t bother going over it.
Don’t worry Stu, MT is still running fine, I’ve just stuck a permanent redirect from my old blog page to this one. One downside of WordPress is that one can’t have multiple blogs running off a single installation. Still, I think we should be able to just make a copy of my install directory, change a few parameters, and re-run the database install script.
Either that, or we could merge the two blogs into one, and edit htaccess to use Apache’s mod_rewite to redirect /stu to posts by you, and /ben to posts by me? WordPress uses that method for its permalinks anyway. Kind cool actually, everything is rendered using index.php, but Apache uses rule in .htaccess to rewrite URLs into parameter strings. Seems more elegant than MT’s method of ‘rebuilding’ from the database into static files.
