I’ve attempted to migrate my Minecraft content from this website to the new one, and was met with multiple stages of disappointment and failure.
I had thought maybe if I downloaded all the media files from this site and uploaded to the new one, that the import/export feature of WordPress would do some nice magic. I was mistaken. It failed no matter what I did, and couldn’t access the files. So scrap that idea. Technology 1 | Seth 0
I then attempted to import all the posts from the Minecraft category and had mixed results. I managed to get all the posts over, but the attached images were something else. The FIRST time I ran the import, the images were working. They just loaded off the old site. I was OK with this! But I ran into issues with categories, and had to start over. Every import after that, the images didn’t work. AT. ALL. Technology 2 | Seth 1
In the end, its going to be simpler to just start fresh on the new site. I can link back to the category archive here for anyone who actually wants to read through it. This just means, sadly, I need to redo all my pictures.
So aside from this, I also messed around with my Genealogy website this morning. It started out with trying to understand why the URL icon stopped working, and ended up with chasing madness down a rabbit hole.
The website has never sent out emails properly, and I decided to look at it again. After a few attempts, I actually got it to send out an email to a new user! But then the link back to authorize the email blew up on me. I have yet to figure it out.
