I thought the move from BlogEngine.NET to DNN would be easy
Well, in this case, the year long escapade finally ended last night. I had to get off of my completely hacked BlogEngine blog...no I hadn't kept up with updates...and moving to DNN was still months away with the lack of Blog capabilities and no decent skin/theme to my name. I just learned about Orchard recently, and here I am.
This is something I can learn and grow with.
Orchard CMS, right from Web Platform Installer
BlogML didn't work right out of BlogEngine, or into DNN or Orchard, but I was able to clean it up quickly and use the Import/Export from Orchard to move the data from a staging platform to this in minutes. I'll spend a few days tinkering with 301 redirects, and files and images that didn't move over, but I like this already.
Hopefully, I can get back to work on blogging, work, and real research, and stop fighting the system. ;)
