I think I have all the steps figured out now, so I should probably document them for others: Install WordPress 2.x. Yes, 2.x. You can download older versions here. I used 2.9.1-RC1 by accident. It worked, but I would use 2.9.2 if I was doing it over and paying attention. Grab the import script from […]

Playing with Tagging and other S9Y stuff

Well, following Coolleen’s and Sean’s lead, I upgraded to Serendipity version 0.9. It’s got a couple of new features. Oh hell, as I write this I see they have already released 0.9.1. Damn, looks like time to upgrade again. In addition I’ve added a plugin that allows me to tag entries. I think tagging is […]
