I've been reading up on WordPress for the past few hours, playing with a test installation, and generally getting to know how it works in hopes of converting over to this new system. Currently I run my own home grown CMS system which is incomplete, cumbersome and will most likely never be finished has I have no time anymore. All in all I find WordPress to be an ideal system but I have one snag, my current permalink structure won't work with WordPress. I created my blog with three primary content "directories" using mod_rewrite: i.e.:
/archives/2004/02/01/ - for browsing through archives
/catagories/catagory_name/ - for browsing catagories
/article/article_name/ - for viewing individual articles
Each of these directory trees is handled by a seperate script: archives.php, catagories.php, article.php respectivley.
You can see this in action my browsing around my site: http://my-dimension.com
Essentially what I am trying to do is come up with a way to keep my old link structure compatible with whatever I end up doing with WordPress. Any suggestions would be extremely appreciated. I'm open to just about anything. Thanks in advance.
