  • that's a cool way to do this thing but still want to add what i added in that presentation, just shifting to wordpress is not enough, even though the product is very good it comes with its own share of vulnerabilities and workarounds so do keep in mind few things.

    1. Keep your wordpress install updated.
    2. Keep your plugin's updated.
    3. for better speed avoid a lot of plugin's (stike a balance between speed and workability or looks)

    That's just it and then we are good to go.

  2. 2.  From Wordpress.org, you can download wordpress and install it on your server.  You normally pay for server space.  You normally buy a domain name in this case.  Wordpress.com is like Blogger.com.  You can blog without paying any bucks.  You don’t have control that Wordpress.org can offer you normally.
  3. 3.  Better Search Engine Optimization (SEO)  You don’t have to wait for Google to add some X feature to blogger  You are not restricted by Bloggers’ template tags which limit the way you can enhance your blogs’ user interface.  …

  9. 9.  We initially assumed that you are using custom domain name.  One domain can point to one blog. Currently its pointing to Blogger.com blog.  You need to make it point to your webhost where you want to install and run your Wordpress blog.
  10. 10.  WordPress post link:  http://localhost/2009/01/national-conference-on- advanced-computer-systems-ncacs-09-hindustan-college- of-engineering.html  Blogger.com post link for same post:  http://www.example.com/2009/01/national-conference- on-advanced.html  Fixed permalink:  http://localhost/2009/01/national-conference-on- advanced.html
  11. 11. <?php require_once('wp-load.php'); $res = $wpdb->get_results("SELECT post_id, meta_value FROM $wpdb- >postmeta WHERE meta_key = 'blogger_permalink'"); $wpdb->print_error(); foreach ($res as $row) { $slug = explode("/", $row->meta_value); $slug = explode(".", $slug[3]); $wpdb->query("UPDATE $wpdb- >posts SET post_name ='" . $slug[0] . "' WHERE ID = $row->post_id"); $wpdb->print_error(); } echo "DONE"; ?>
  12. 12.  Go to “Tools >> Export”.
  13. 13.  Configure custom domain on your webhosting account.  Upload & Install WordPress. Most webhost provide one-click interface for this.  Change permalink structure like we did in step 2. (Ref: Slide #8)

  16. 16.  Your images in old posts will remain on your Blogger account.  There is no tool which can “generate” Wordpress theme from a Bloggers template.
  17. 17.  Ask a friend!  Need free support?  Use our forum - http://www.devilsworkshop.org/forum/  Ready to spend some bucks! ;-)  Ask rtCamp - http://rtcamp.com/
