升级到WordPress 2.3的郁闷问题

国庆终于有时间升级到wp 2.3了,可是没想到升级完了反而碰到了奇怪的问题。原来的域名lifedreamr.com是我自己注的,但是现在的服务器autoers.org是和朋友一起在另外一家买的。之前是通过做了个dns proxy把blog.lifedreamr.com隐形转向到autoers.org/blog,然后在wp 2.2里面可以把blog url设成blog.lifedreamr.com来完美解决同一空间用不同域名的问题。



另外一大郁闷,Windows Live Writer发文的话到wp就莫名变成问号乱码了,wp和wlw都设成utf8了还这样。升级2.3之前一直没问题 。中文现在只好直接上来发了。

哦对了,由于feedburner在中国被封锁,目前强烈推荐使用服务器在国外的在线feed阅读器,比如google reader。另外,送给同学们突破封锁的好工具freegate,可以从我的box下载

Hello world, again (Part II, how I moved from JRoller to WordPress)

This is my summary about the migration of my blog from JRoller to here.

I’m a Java engineer working in China. So when I was looking for a free blogging service, JRoller was my natural choice, because

1. In China, Blogger, WordPress, LiveJournal, and all other mainstream blogging sites are blocked. So there are sadly not many choices left for me.

2. Chinese local blogging sites are crap, specially from a developer’s perspective.

3. JRoller is the best free blogging service implemented in Java today. It’s hosted by JavaLobby which is one of my favorites. There are a lot of brilliant folks hosting their blogs there. And since it’s not so mainstream, it’s not blocked in China. Hurray!

But after more than 3 months living with JRoller, I have to say I’m an unhappy user. Roller’s (JRoller’s, actually) lack of attractive features and looks, defective Chinese support, mysterious API support, make it fairly uncompetitive compared to today’s top ones, and make my blogging experience rather unexciting.

So I decided to move to WordPress, setting up on a server space I’m sharing with my friend, to get rid of all the problems. And I have to say WordPress is simply great.

So I did some Google search about the migration of my posts from JRoller to WordPress. I found a post from zeusville very helpful. And Jesus Rodriguez, the blogger, was kind enough to send me the custom JRoller template file which I wasn’t able to download from his blog anymore. Thanks again, Jesus.

Now I’m already very comfortable with WordPress. BTW. This post is written with Windows Live Writer. I have to say that this is the best free offline blogging software I’ve used so far. Unfortunately it comes from Microsoft so it only runs on Windows. But maybe it’ll have a chance running on Mono on Linux. I’ll give it a try later.
