So, after almost 3 years running Drupal 6 for my blog, I switched back to WordPress.
It just feels a lot easier to blog with it. I still really enjoy Drupal and use it for a lot of projects. It just wasn’t the best fit for my blog at this time.
My biggest issue with WordPress was its lack of official PostgreSQL support which was a bit of an issue as I’m avoiding MySQL as much as possible. After some poking at it, I actually managed to get PG4WP to work on a recent WordPress installation.
To make the transition as seamless as possible I also wrote a Python script which takes all Drupal “stories” and convert them into WordPress “posts”. It also handles categories and comments (including threading). It’s a bit hackish and could certainly be made a lot faster by reducing the number of queries.
Code can be found on Launchpad here: drupal2wordpress
So now, everything is imported in an all new WordPress instance, URLs should be mostly compatible. Now, back to blogging!
That code will be useful for me. I have to convert some posts from drupal to wordpress. Thanks.
how did you get pg4wp working ?
I am trying it out using WP 3.0.2 and at wp-admin/setup-config.php?step=2 , I get a blank page.
The logs arent showing me anything either.
If I remember well, I had to edit:
and comment the line saying:
require_once(dirname(dirname(__FILE__)) . '/wp-includes/wp-db.php');
