Lady Crumpet's Armoire

(Minor) Victory

Cue theme from "Chariots of Fire." Lady Crumpet, having successfully imported both her Blogger entries and her readers' comments from YACCS, congratulates herself with mental somersaults. Aside from the fact that she is quite incapable of actual somersaults, she is also at the office, where such spontaneous outbursts are rather frowned upon. She shall content herself with one of the free brownies baked by one of the secretaries, and stroll a genteel victory lap around the library.

Phil Ringnalda's instructions DO work. One has to run the PHP script from an appropriate directory - preferably one that is NOT contained in one's cgi-bin, as certain silly girls attempted. But then sleeping on the problem, rather than burning the midnight oil in frustration, often reveals simple errors the next day.

Now that my content has been brought over, the next step is to restore the Armoire to its former prissy glory. And clean up my entries. And assign them to categories. And so on and so on.

Three cheers for Lady Crumpet! Or do I risk being shushed?

Yaaay! I'm still impressed and still proud. It looks great as-is but I'm sure you'll be happier when you get your old template up to MT speed. Well done.

P.S. - Go into your blog configuration and change your comments not to require an e-mail address. Unless you're mining us for spam. In that case, keep up the good work ;-)

Congratulations!!! I knew you'd figure it out!

It is confusing having both Perl AND PHP (or the Berkeley database) in one product...well, it bollixes me up, anyway. :-)

It's all downhill from here!
