I finally moved off of Community Server as my blog engine and migrated to this site using WordPress. It’s all new to me so I’m still figuring out the settings, but with the help of my hosting company (WebHost4Life.com) and Vincent (support guy), I was able to get all the content over (I think.)
I decided to move off CS for a couple reasons. First, I was on an older version of the software and to upgrade would’ve been a pain in the ass. Second, I initially created the site thinking it would be used to host blogs for other coworkers and friends, and post pictures. It seemed like folks I ran into that were interested in blogging already had a blog, so it became my personal site. As for pictures, I’m still trying to figure that solution out, but I know CS isn’t part of it. Perhaps a newer version would’ve been useful, but see previous first point. Lastly, although the CS setting for allowing comments was set, no one could comment on my posts. Not what I wanted. I realize I don’t have a lot of readers, but I’d like to have the option for communication with anyone that stops by.
Hopefully WordPress will last a while for me. I’d, of course, like to get on a SharePoint platform some day, but that will have to wait. If anyone has any WordPress tips, feel free to leave them in the comments (because you can do that now!)
