Geeky Squee!

Those with sharp eyes might notice that the “ran­dom quote” wid­get there in the right-hand col­umn has changed to a fanci­er one, and a page with all the quotes in the data­base has been added to the site, too. I switched to a new plu­g­in but was also able to remem­ber some­thing I’d near­ly for­got­ten about SQL that allowed me to trans­fer all 824 quotes from one plu­g­in to anoth­er with­out hav­ing to re-type all of them. I’m so hap­py I did a lit­er­al geek hap­py dance around the house!

If any­body out there knows a LOT about trans­fer­ring posts from an old ver­sion of Word­Press (PHP 4 data­base) to a new­er one, I could use some help. I’ve got­ten stuck try­ing to recov­er the old posts from Katie’s blog and things just keep error­ing out. All the oth­er sites came across just fine, but the export func­tion on hers would­n’t work so I can’t use the sweet lit­tle importer and have to actu­al­ly work with the SQL direct­ly, and keep get­ting SQL errors with­out intel­li­gi­ble error mes­sages (my only access is through phpMyAdmin).

Cyn is Katie's mom, Esther's Mémé, and a Support Engineer. She lives in the Atlanta area with her life partner, Rick, and their critters. She knits, does counted-thread needlework, reads, makes music, plays TTRPGs, and spends too much time online.
