Traded in phpWebsite for Geeklog



I've been blogging for a few years now. I started with a static HTML page. Then I tried installing slashdot. That was like launching a space shuttle it was so large scale and complicated. Next I used phpWebsite. It had a lot of promise and a healthy list of desirable blog features, but the quality and consistency fell far short of the design plans. I happened on geek log and was quite impressed with the polish and surrounding community. Doesn't the domain sourceforge.net scream "valid project" to you?

So now here I am the proud owner of the latest geeked site jimweller.net. My first story on the new sight is a recount of my experience switching from phpWebsite to geeklog. Some developers and prospective switchers might find the read helpful as I offer advice to switchers and offer some design ideas and bugfixes for developers. There's also a perl script that converts from phpWebsite to geeklog. I hope to be actively helping develop this product as I work to finish my new theme 'sleeples'.

Hi Jim, i was using phpws b4 switching to GL also, they are slow in developments but are good in support as with GL but as i need something for my articles, i made GL the choice and uses it's static pages for my articles now. Maybe you can upload/ email your converter to the developers of GL and have it listed officially as a converter for phpWS to GL. It would have been great if you had made it when i did the switch but anyway, all's fine and i did a manual copying and pasting of my articles.
