I just did the very thing that frustrates the heck out of me when otherâ€™s do it: make a big change without knowing what youâ€™re doing.
The story: Iâ€™ve been very frustrated with the Serendipity platform Iâ€™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 Iâ€™d just change the folderâ€™s name, then keep the â€œserendipityâ€ blog folder, then import the old posts into the new WordPress blog, which (stupid me) I loaded into the â€œserendipityâ€ folder. Wellâ€¦having no real knowledge how MySQL works, I must have just blown up my blog.
Â So know, all Iâ€™ve been able to maintain is the subfolder. Meanwhile I have to fix the template, all of the old posts which didnâ€™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.
Â Yepâ€¦.Idiocasy 2.0.
