WE'VE MOVED TO WORDPRESS!!

Wordpress

Dear Readers-

You may have noticed we’ve been m.i.a all weekend… This is because we’ve been in the process of switching our software to WordPress. I’m happy to announce that we have made the transition relatively unscathed, and we are going to be blogging bigger and better than ever in no time. You may notice that many of our images didn’t make it through the transition, sadly, so we are having to go through and manually update the images in all of our archived posts one by one. Please be patient with us while this image upload happens.

On the bright side of things, comments are finally working again, so please comment away!

Hope you enjoy the new software, and please feel free to tell us about any glitches, concerns, or things you like about the new software…

I would also like to personally apologize to everyone who’s written in whom I haven’t responded to. I’ve been pretty overwhelmed with recent technical difficulties and have been neglecting my inbox. If you’ve written to me and I haven’t responded, please try emailing me again after this. I promise I will get back to you.

    I love Inhabitat and I love WordPress. You two are beautiful together. :-)

    My only suggestion is to use a custom permalink structure (Options > Permalinks) to have pretty URIs instead of the searchengine unfriendly ?p=775 style.

    Great move guys!

    Just a note… the link *back* from the Feedburner RSS feed to the site is http://p6.hostingprod.com/@inhabitat.com/blog/ instead of just simply http://www.inhabitat.com/

    Also, the links *to* the RSS feeds in the tags of your site are wrong, and certainly not pointing to the Feedburner feed.

    I think what you want is to have every RSS link point to the Feedburner feed, and every link back point to http://www.inhabitat.com/

    Phew!

    I love your site! Something I’ve noticed since you’ve been m.i.a. is that the RSS feed is m.i.a. as well. Or at least my reader (Sage) cannot find your new feed.

    I have observed that since you changed, your pictures load extremely slowly. I just have dialup, but still, this new software seems like a step backward.

    I enjoy your site. Recently I found your articles Newer Orleans,Reversible Destiny Lofts, and Big Dig House especially interesting. Happy to learn that you have survived the conversion. Welcome to the club of WordPress users. Good luck!

    This is awesome. I’ve been a long time reader and often blog about various posts that appear here. If you need any help with wordpress let me know.

    Great choice with the WordPress! Hope it works smooth and well for you as it does for us. And all those plugins…
    Best!

    Well it sounds great that you’ll be “bigger and better” I’ve recently found this site, and I keep on coming back! The manual image entry sounds like a pain – I hope it isn’t too bad. Cheers
