The transition to Textpattern continued today. For whatever reason, I had to change my TxP URI settings to /section/id/article-title from /yyyy/mm/dd/article-title. It wasn’t working the way I wanted it to.
I started looking through the TxP logs, and decided it would be worth while to up the RewriteRules to accomodate all of the old file paths from my MT2.661 installation. It was actually really easy, just one MySQL select statement (and a little bit of sed tweaking to remove some unwanted characters).
Next is to finish tweaking the underlying structure to fit the model I want. This includes a few more plugins. Then it’s time to really work on the visual design. It’s funny though, I am wondering if I could do an RSS/Atom/XML only blog, probably not, there are still too many who don’t primarily use an RSS reader. Maybe I should go for a really old school minimalist visual design. Hmmmm, something to think about.
