Blech!!

I just have to reaffirm that WordPress ROCKS, man!

I’m in the middle of doing some custom work for a new client who has a TypePad (SixApart’s hosted, paid version of Movable Type) blog. I have a ‘dummy’ TypePad account, because I’ve had quite a few TypePad customers, actually – and it’s worth it for me to have the account to play around in when designing new, custom skins for my Type Pad clients.

I can’t take it!!!!!

It is sooooooooooooooo slow!!

All those templates are enough to make a person scream…..loudly!!

I’m over working in TypePad and my fingers and brain are SCREAMING for the seamless ease of WordPress!

Plus – the servers that SixApart runs for their TypePad clients are so excruciatingly SLOW! I could write a 3,000 page novel while waiting for the rebuilds.

I should mention here that WordPress has no rebuilds.

Ok. End of rant – thanks for listening.

  1. Thanks for this post, I have still been dragging my feet on making the switch. I guess I will have to jump on it this week. Easy install? Easy import/transfer of my old stuff?

  2. Vox – it’s so easy it’ll make you cry tears of utter joy ๐Ÿ™‚

    Do an export of your MT entries.

    Do the WordPress install.

    Run the importmt.php script found in the wp-admin folder.

    Should take but a few minutes and you’re done. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I totally agree with you. WordPress is so much better than Movabletype or Typepad or any blogware for that matter. I feel sorry every time I go to a Movabletype blog.

  4. Well for those trapped in TypePad…thanks for designing for us! I love my template you built. I tried to install wordpress but can’t seem to figure it out. Does it go on personal pc’s?
