Time for a change

I think this sums it up, for the most part:

After nearly seven years with Movable Type, I’ve switched over to WordPress, which has proven to be quicker and more flexible. Thanks to the diligence of Greg Wythe, this should actually be more or less transparent to you. The blog feeds were swapped over first, so if you subscribe via an RSS reader, you have probably already noticed the switch. As of this evening, the MT index page as well as the root domain page are now redirected to this one:

http://offthekuff.com/wp

If you have bookmarks, or have me on your blogroll, I’d appreciate if you updated the links, if only so I can keep track of where the traffic is more accurately. All of the archived Movable Type links will continue to exist and work as they are, which is good because there’s not a snowball’s chance in hell I could ever fix them in this lifetime.

I hope you like the new look. Some new features will get added as time permits between the end of the Lege session and the gearing up of the 2009 elections. The search feature on WordPress is a lot better than what I had in MT, so give that a try again if you had stopped using it before; I’ve made liberal use of it. Far as I can tell, your first comment requires approval, but after that it’ll get published without my intervention. That may change some day, but it’s how it is now. If you see any glitches or other weirdness, or just something you don’t like that could be improved, let me know. Thanks very much, and welcome to the new home of Off the Kuff. May it be at least another seven years before I feel the need to do this again.

    The blog looks very nice! I’ve been working in wp for a little while now. Very flexible. At some point, I would like to be able to do entire websites around it.
