It gave me a big headache back then when i migrate this site from Blogger.com to WordPress last year. I remember i got email assistant from a kind WordPress employee (his name was Mark, couldn’t find which famous WordPress’ Mark) but i believe i can’t find a complete step by step Blogger.com to WordPress migration, especially from SEO perspective. I lost my backlinks because of the change of permalinks structure and lucky to still get a PR 2. I did the same mistakes on some of my other blog which is suck a lot.
WordPress 2.6. was suddenly out. From the Development blog post today, it was out almost a month ahead schedule. Awesome
Soon after tweeting the news, i upgraded Robin Malau Dot Com to WordPress 2.6. The process runs smoothly as well as some other blogs i maintain. However, i still find problem upgrading Nextgen Gallery.
Yesterday i was confused to find a way to change my Manchester United Blog permalinks. When i started the blog about a year ago, i didn’t realize how important it was to have a pretty permalink for SEO purposes.
For the last 2 weeks, i start to use another Blog Editor. I use it because i need to overcome these constraints on running and authoring self-hosted WordPress blogs:
- I’m authoring multi blogs.
- I use hosting plans with its limited shared resources. At slow loading times, i can spend mostly an hour only to publish a single post!
- I need to always logged in to WordPress Dashboard only to publish a post (then usually look around see if i can tweak something :-D).
- Add Media feature in WordPress 2.5.1. suck. Find it freeze all the time and mostly ends with Firefox crashes.
- I have many drafts in my blog admin and if any MF find security leaks in WP, maybe they can explore it like in the past version. I don’t want to give them that job.
In the past, i’ve been using several blogging editors but i stop using it:
