After using several applications (particularly RadioUserland) I was initially impressed with WordPress but now I’m getting to the ‘pulling my hair out stage’.
I’m a non-technie, but pretty smart out following a recipe, and atfer trawling these forums, FAQs and Documents are getting pretty damn annoyed at the badly written and updated documentation.
Using the word ‘obviously’ always means you haven’t explained something correctly. Saying ‘simply make a call…..’ is not explicit! Ahhh!
Anyway, importing files into WP went well (though links in headelines are lost) but I’m not impressed in how WP imports OPML. Do they have to be flat files? Do they require other modification in some way? Again not explained (I used the Blogrolling.com tool whcih allows importing – but randomised!!!!)
Next – archiving. Tried several tools but ARCHIVING DOES NOT WORK. I read through and followed the instructions – but no archive template emerges when you attempt to write an Arhcive Index page – just the deafult and links templates appear…. Ahh
One tool (the second recommened) by WordPress – DC-Nicer – affects categories but produces no archive. It’s buggy and is not being developed….
I realise a paid version would be supported, but this seems an insidious lack of support in a leading product.
Anyone out there to save my hair?
