First WP Test Post

Well, I’m trying to see how this new WordPress thing works. I like the interface a lot (reminds me of b2, which I used to use, and coincidentally enough, is the direct precursor to WP). Considering the new liscening deals that Movable Type has put into place (yes, there’s a free version, but the paid one is required for using registration for comments), and that this baby is not only open source, but free and PHP-based instead of Perl… I think I may have to make the switch.

  1. Hey, welcome to the cult… er, I mean community. 😉

    I switched over to WP from MT last week and I’m thrilled with the results. Plus, the big influx of talented Movable Type refugees is starting to produce some great tools for WordPress. For a quick run-down of some of the better ones I came across this weekend, check here.

    Best of luck on your WordPress adventure! 🙂

  2. Thanks! And, apparently, the comment notification emails work right out of the gate, without any additional work from me, which is more than I can say about MT. That, and all the great plugins I’m discovering (thanks, Adam), I really think this is going to be the way of the future, at least for myself (and a lot of other MT malcontents, it seems).

  3. “the paid one is required for using registration for comments”

    That’s actually incorrect.

  4. Well, maybe. Things haven’t exactly been clear, and now it looks like they’re changing a little as well.

    I apologize if I misled anyone. But I think, just the same, I’m going to stick with WordPress. Already, it’s been (subjectively) 10 times easier to get up and running and start getting it organized the way I want it. And Since I know PHP a bit more than I know Perl, I can start customizing it and writing plugins for myself— always troublesome dealing with Perl and MT, just because I don’t know it as well.
