Migrating Money-Code from Drupal to WordPress

| 3 Comments

So I was really getting annoyed with Drupal and thought I would make the push to WordPress. Surprisingly, the migration went pretty easy for the most part (relating to posts and comments). This site was a great resource for the SQL updates:

After I migrated to WordPress, I needed to update my posts that had code blocks (example code). I went with “Dean’s Code Highlighter“, which appears to work fine. For now, I’m working with a temporary theme while I develop better theme. The other issue that I needed to address was updating my feed at Feedburner with the new WordPress feed address. After I did this, I thought about doing a mod_rewrite which would have eliminated that need. Oh well. I’m psyched that I can now post my latest post in my Digital Point profile. I was unable to do that with the Drupal RSS format.

I should be completely done adding tags and assigning categories later today. After that I’ll start posting a few new posts.

Thanks everyone!

  1. Phew.. Okay.. I have tags, categories and code blocks updated. Let me know if you see some unformatted code blocks out there. I’ll be working on a few other sections (recent comments, ratings, etc) soon.

    Thanks!

  2. Well, how do you like wordpress so far?

  3. Hello Deneil

    I’m liking it a lot. Drupal has some great advantages, but as a blogging platform, it falls short in my opinion.

    Thanks for commenting!
