Redirecting MT Entries

Posted March 29, 2004 by Alex King. Filed under Development, Switchers.

I’ve posted a single entry template for MoveableType that you can use to republish your MT archives and have them all redirect to the corresponding entries you’ve imported into WordPress.

Download.

If you’re inspired to take this and create other templates (archives, etc.) feel free to send them my way and I’ll include them in the distribution.

  10. [...] Okay, I’ve finally moved Playpen over to WordPress (hence the default-ish) theme (see footer for credits) for now. I have set up Alex King’s mt-wp redirect template to send all the old links this way. Also a whole bunch of .htaccess Redirects to sort out pathnames to archives and images, etc. At some point I should probably clean up the files I suppose. Either that or just cart them around forever from server to server… [...]

Tuve que rehacer el template individual de posts en MT (me basé en este para hacerlo), traduciendo el por PHP los títulos para que WP los entendiera, tuve que meterme en el .htaccess a corregir errores de redireccionamiento, también cambiar títulos y paths de posts y categorías en ambos blogs para que la cosa calzara… y etcétera etcétera bla bla bla.
