OK. For a while I had been trying to update Serendipity blogging software but could never do it. I am a geek with credentials to prove it. But I was having trouble. So I thought I would give WordPress a chance.
Both are PHP based, which is what I know how to develop in, so I can muck with the underlying code. The problem was that there were plenty of scripts that would move everything from one blogging software to another, but not for Serendipity.
So I had to write my own. Of course I had to write it in PHP for moving stuff from one set of MySQL tables to another.
My next step need to be updating the CSS, well actually creating a new theme, to make it look like the rest of my acting site. The I will need to redirect people from my old blog to this new one.
Hopefully this will not take too long.
