Wordpress to Octopress Migration Complete

My WordPress to Octopress migration is complete.

I won’t say it was easy. The conversion script did a fairly good job but there were some issues.

The biggest issue was over the years I had used several code formatter plugins with Wordpress. Unfortunately the early versions of those appear to have botched up the code resulting in a lot of my early Ant posts being mostly useless. I thought initially the import script had screwed things up but I dug into my original WordPress XML export and things were missing there as well.

I will dig around and see if I can re-create those posts but I’m doubtful I can recreate all of them.

Next I’ll try to condense my experience trying to get Octopress running on Windows.
