Thinking about a switch from Movable Type to Word Press

@ 04:32 PM | Filed Under: Website (t) | Comments (1) | Cosmos

I've been thinking about switching some or all of my websites' mini content management system from Movable Type to Word Press for at least a year. Dreamhost recently set up some sort of "one click" Word Press install that works very well. And yesterday, Christine linked to a huge amount of Word Press resources, plugins, etcetera. It'll be pretty easy to move this site over; but I'm not sure about Exploit Boston! since the calendar plugins I use that Brad Choate and Kevin Shay wrote are specifically for Movable Type. I recently moved Exploit Boston! over to Textdrive; but I doubt I'd have too much trouble setting up Word Press from scratch.

I was inspired by Brad Choate's "Reboot" list to redesign/update his website. I've been wanting to make some updates to sooz.com (and learn a few things along the way) for a while so I borrowed a few things from Brad's list and added a few of my own. It's a work-in-progress.

Thanks, Dreamhost!

February 21st marks the third year in a row I've had my websites hosted at Dreamhost. Apparently they appreciate my business. I received an email last night with a $30 gift certificate to mark the occassion. Technically they've hosted my websites since late 1997 but I moved my sites briefly in 1999 and again in 2000. I had more of a love/hate relationship with them at the beginning (which is why I switched twice); but the past three years have been great. It's interesting to see how much they've grown, too. I remember when they were just starting out and hosting Swanky.org, a project I was part of at the time in 1997-1998. Five years ago really doesn't feel like five years ago. Or something like that.

I still haven't figured out the problem I'm having with Movable Type. Though I don't think it's really a problem with Movable Type necessarily, moreso a permissions problem with files. I can publish all files through Movable Type just fine except when it gets to the index files. I get this error message: Writing to '/home/susank/sooz.com/index.html.new' failed: Opening local file '/home/susank/sooz.com/index.html.new' failed: Permission denied.

I've tried making adjustments to the existing index.html file's permissions but that didn't help. Weird.

Update Jan. 21st @ 11:50pm: The problem is fixed! I had the wrong CGI user associated with sooz.com.

I've moved the sooz.com homepage from Blogger to Movable Type. There's one small technical detail which I need to figure out so for now, the main page redirects to /log. But you probably wouldn't have noticed that unless I told you.

I'm merging my photo site (capricious.org) with sooz.com since I have enough websites as it is. Four is enough. So, if you've got capricious.org bookmarked or in your blogroll, consider changing the link from capricious to sooz.com. Now it's time for a movie and then Michael and I are going to visit friends who are back in town after living in Florida the past 1.5 years. Not a bad way to spend a birthday evening!
