Blog upgraded to WordPress

I’ve upgraded to WordPress after several happy years using Blosxom. Whilst Blosxom is a neat blogging engine and has served my needs well, it doesn’t really have all the spanky new “community” features that I’d really like. A colleague told me recently that I’d gone “dark” and that’s true–hopefully easy drafting of blog posts and features like comments and trackback will help me reconnect.

The older archived is still available, and anything indexed by a search engine will continue to work. If you see something awry, please let me know.

    Some people like to include a PostID to maintain URL uniqueness.

    take a look at the following:

    Hey Scott, thanks for the advice. I had already tried changing the permalink settings but got “page not found” all the time. I’ve made .htaccess writable by WordPress but it still hasn’t solved the problem. I’ll try harder when I’ve got time to fix things if I break them…
