I am wary of blogging about blogging, but this deserves a post. I just migrated 645 posts with their comments from Drupal 7 to WordPress 4, using the excellent Drupal2Wordpress script. The script is by Liran Tal, who improved on original script by Robin Singh. (Read more about the script at Liran’s post) It worked […]
[textile] The “photos”:/photos section is re-opened. I dumped the bulky and inflexible “coppermine”:http://coppermine.sourceforge.net/ for xhtml+css based “iPAP”:http://rebelpixel.com/projects/ipap/ by “Markku Seguerra”:http://rebelpixel.com . iPAP is extremely lean, and it takes only 20 minutes to ‘skin’ it to ichris.ws current theme. iPAP is still in its first release, and I’ll look forward eagerly to future improvements (especially the […]

After searching the web tonight I found Mike Hudson’s blog entry, which described the technique in details. And hell, it’s not that difficult!
