Moving – Part 2

So, after importing all of the old posts into WordPress, a quick look through some of the posts made me realize something bad.  All of the posts with pictures in them pointed to a files hosted on the old site.  (Apart from posts containing pictures hosted on Flickr.)

That’s not good.

So, I had to download all of the pictures (via ftp, since there was no way to just go to the directory where they were contained) and upload them to WP.  Then I had to edit each individual post containing one of these pictures to link them to the ones I just uploaded.

What a pain in the ass.  I still need to go through the posts and find all of the ones that point to anything hosted on the old server that’s separate from ExpressionEngine.

Pain in the ass.
