Well, I have done it!! Nick Mayne is no longer a word press member, instead I have bought in to this new CMS system called Orchard. The Orchard system however is not that new to me as I have been working with it since December of 2009.
So what exactly needed to be done in order for me to move my blog over to Orchard?
Okay, So now my site is empty but looking quite sexy… next is to create my blog…. wait I already have a blog don’t I? Okay so time to get that blog and move it across.. I decided to use a BlogML module that I have written and published to the Orchard Gallery Feed so anyone can use it.
Getting my blog out of wordpress was easy, but getting it in to an acceptable format was a nightmare, but I refused to write a wordpress plugin for Orchard, instead I asked my self Is there a wordpress to BlogML converter?? YES!!! found one here.. http://www.visualsoftware.net/Blog/post/2009/10/27/WordPress-eXtended-RSS-to-BlogMl-converter-WXR-2-BlogML.aspx So lets continue,
So now I have my blog in a BlogML format, lets import it.
Note: If you haven't already installed the NGM.BlogML module please do that before continuing
