OK, so I’m an idiot

I just did the very thing that frustrates the heck out of me when other’s do it: make a big change without knowing what you’re doing.

The story: I’ve been very frustrated with the Serendipity platform I’ve been using the past year for this blog. So I wanted to switch to WordPress, which has many more plugins and millions of folks use it without many problems. I wanted to maintain all of the links out there in the blogosphere so thought I’d just change the folder’s name, then keep the “serendipity” blog folder, then import the old posts into the new WordPress blog, which (stupid me) I loaded into the “serendipity” folder. Well…having no real knowledge how MySQL works, I must have just blown up my blog.

 So know, all I’ve been able to maintain is the subfolder. Meanwhile I have to fix the template, all of the old posts which didn’t cleanly import (but thank goodness for Feedburner who had my RSS file), and build a custom 404 to tell everyone who follows my broken links where to find the old posts.

 Yep….Idiocasy 2.0.
