Movable Type woes..

I tried upgrading to Movable Type 3.2 earlier from 3.16 and some of my data got screwed up (trackback stuff it seems). I’ve imported all my data back and things seem to be up and running OK, but we’ll have to see how things go.

Their import/export stuff kind of sucks. I wasn’t able to import all my data without first removing the spam trackbacks from the export file manually. Thanks goes out to timeless for some regex help. It also doesn’t bother to note things like if a comment user was a typekey user or some other minor things which kind of bugs me. Guess I’ll get over it.

I need to redo my templates and such. I’d like to get them back to how I had them a long time ago or go in some new direction… need to find more free time.

[update: 6:46AM Eastern — After a few more reinstalls, a migration to SQLite, plugin installations, and some category reorganizations, I think everything is back up and working much better than it ever was before. zzz.]
