I am hand migrating an old MT blog into WP.
I have many photos that were included in posts in MT on the server.
My question is :
Would it be better to re-upload these photos through WP when copying the old MT posts into WP ?
What's the down side to just hard coding all the links to the photos already on the server?
I want to use a few photos in my text widget on the sidebar. The only way I found to do that at present was to hard code to the current photos.
What path would I use to access a photo once it was uploaded through WP's image upload browser, that was not connected to a post?
