I used to have a sorta blog where I just managed it with straight html editing and ftp uploading.. but I got sick of the look, and I am really liking wordpress, so decided I’d like to switch over.
The big problem of course is converting all my entries. It would be possible, albeit tedious, to do it by hand, but I know enough computer whiz types (though I myself am not particularly in that category, but I can learn) to know that there’s probably a way, though it might be complicated, to convert this.
Luckily for me the entries I’ve made are all consistently formatted (or at least there are blocks of consistentl formatting in between style changes, but I can separate those out into separate documents pretty easily) so I’m thinking if I can somehow point some sort of script to parse through the files and detect the ends of entries based on <hr> tags, and the date based on a certain format etc, perhaps this process would be a little easier/possible.
My problem now is that I know nothing about scripting, or how I could set this up to interact with the WP database, so if anyone could point me in the right direction I would be thrilled.
thanks a lot in advance.
