I'm trying out WP, to use it instead of MT. I installed it and imported my MT entries which worked fine. But now I have two questions about the placing of files.
1. In MT I had my pages Ã¡nd images stored in http://www.mysite.nl/weblog/archives/2003/200302/200302.html and the corresponding images/swf + extra html-pages + subdirectories in that same folder. So everything stored by month. All the embedded images and all the rest within the entries is linked this way via an absolute url. So in the manner of http://... etc. etc. At this moment it works reasonably good because I still have the MT-site running and that directorystructure intact. I cÃ³uld move the entire set of directories to the new wpweblog/ which in the end will be renamed to "weblog", thereby replacing the old weblog. On the other hand I could work a day on correcting the links to a more futureproof system. At this moment I only have about 200 post (most of them including images or swf).
Any advice on this?
2. My second question is about the same thing. I will have a directorystructure of http://www.mysite.nl/weblog/ for my indexpage, and http://www.mysite.nl/weblog/wordpress for my wp-files. If I wanted to make this installation futureproof, what's the best way to keep track of my images etc.? Everything in one folder? Like http://www.mysite.nl/weblog/images? This can become I huge folder! And what about extra html-pages? And linking everything relatively instead of absolutely?
I also ask this because I don't understand how the permalinksystem works. I read something about wp uses links like http://www.mysite.nl/weblog/2003/02/etc. for it's permalinks. Would this mess up the links I have in my posts?
I'm really sorry for all these questions. But I quess all of them are about the same thing, filing. And I didn't find an answer elsewhere yet.
