Well, I think just about every single blog post I’ve ever made is now on here! Yay! There were a couple of issues, in that the imported stuff doesn’t appear to have a category, but apart from that it’s all here. I’ve managed to import all my old blog posts from X-Blog and Blogger, so I’m all set to go!
It’s quite easy to import stuff actually, except for the the few problems I mentioned. I was able to hack together a script, no probs. Took a couple of hours from installing WordPress to having all posts imported… that’s pretty good going!
I’m going to take a break now, I think I’ve earned one!
Edit: Well, it seems to have missed a few out towards the beginning of the blog. There aren’t any of the first posts I made on Blogger… not that it matters! I’m through with importing things 😉
Edit (again): Nope, it’s all there OK! For some reason it’s not showing up, but all the posts are there OK. Just have to figure out why they’re not showing up – I’ll do it later 😉

Welcome to WordPress! It’s pretty cool, isn’t it!
Heehee, just realised above your comment it says, “Simon says” *ahem* anyway.
Apparently all my blog posts have been imported fine, apart from the lack of categories on the ones I imported from the custom system. The problem I mentioned was me not realising the archive pages have scroll links through them – doh!
Speaking of noticing things, I take it you’ve noticed that it says “Phill Sacre is proudly powered by WordPress” at the bottom of every page!
I did notice that, but I just haven’t got round to doing anything about it yet! I am going to make a custom template for WordPress I think, but that will have to wait for a while. Which is why I’m leaving it at this URL instead of making it my main site! – I just want everything to look how I want it to rather than looking like a template.
I wouldn’t expect anything less from you! I think I might have to stick with one of the ready-made templates – but, having said that, I’m quite happy with the new one I’ve just adopted!
