Blogger to WordPress

I went through the process of migrating the Travel Guide blog to WordPress from Blogger. It worked successfully save for a single incongruance that will prevent me from moving this travelogue over to WordPress.

To migrate a self-hosted Blogger blog over to WordPress I basically followed the instructions on 12 Steps to Convert Your Blogger Blog to WordPress

It worked, except for the simple fact that Blogger single page url address end with a .html file title, whereas WordPress operates in .php. This .html suffix at the end of each page was lost in the migration.

This means that all of the preexisting links going to the individual pages on the Travel Guide site would be broken. So I switched everything back to how it was.

Can’t do it. Oh well . . . it was a good try.

I may publish a new WordPress instillation over the /travelogue index page while leaving all of the other entries intact. . . or I just may forget about this all together and just wait for Blogger to fix their problems.
