As I am continuing to work on elsua further, at the moment I am having a look at the template customisation where I will be adding a number of different features, thus stay tuned !, there was one single item that got me wondering what I would be doing with it now that the weblog is up and running and I am not longer posting content into LSR. Yes, indeed, that is the migration of the contents from one weblog to the other. Both weblogs are running WordPress and although I know I could probably get the data from one to the other I am not sure it would be an easy task.
I think that this is due to the fact that LSR is hosted over at Blogsome and I am not sure I would be able to get all the contents from them in one single go. I know I may be able to use FTP to grab those contents if I would have access to it, but since that FTP access is not possible within Blogsome I think it is going to be a painful and slow process. So that is why I have decided to take a bit more of a radical approach and just move those weblog posts over here that I find still relevant and that I would want to keep.
Then for all the others I will just leave them for the time being in my Blogsome weblog and if I ever would want to get them back I know where they are. One step at a time. Thus you will have to bear with me while all this migration and template tweaking takes place. I am going to make sure that there will be some updated content as well during the course of the day so that you can also check out and read some of the stuff of what is going on in elsua and which may not have been include in my other weblog.
You may be actually wondering how I am planning to make that migration from one weblog to the other, right ? Well, I though about using Qumana for this same purpose. I am sure that you know already about this, right? The latest version of Qumana actually allows you to get former posts from your weblog and bring them back to edit mode and then with a single change of the weblogging platform I can re-post the weblog content but in my new weblog: elsua. So what I thought would probably have been a painful process it may not be so any longer. It may take some time as I am also planning to add some more information details on each of the weblog posts if applicable, but I hope to eventually get there over the next few days.
However, if you know of a way about how to migrate easily content from Blogsome into a WordPress based weblog please do post a comment with the info or contact me offline. Let’s see how it all goes, folks. More to come later on.
