Okie, I took a cue from Jennifer and changed the permalinks. She’s right – I should fix it before it gets out of control.

If you linked to this site, please note that the /index.php/ stuff has been removed from my permalinks.

Permalinks messed up in conversion

I made some decisions on conversions for Galaxycow (as you’ll see if you visited /blogs or some of the other blogs that haven’t reimported yet).

The biggest decision was changing from multiple disparate WordPress installs to a single WordPressMU install.

HOWEVER, I have discovered that my old permalinks used the screwy /index.php/ workaround to get you to a page. Looking over at Aqua’s blog, I discovered the old permalinks were that way… and this blog wanted to get rid of that. I’ve put the /index.php/ silliness back in to avoid breaking links to this site. Oh well.

What do we do with the drunken website?

So, I’ve decided Drupal just isn’t the way to go on the home page of Galaxycow.

I’m considering a “backpedal” of sorts and going with just something like RapidWeaver to create the website and maintain the podcasts, but it presents a bit of a problem. If I choose to open a forum or whatnot later on down the line, then that’s Yet Another Disparate Database. The WordPress blogs linked in from here are on their own separate databases and so would the forum. You’d be registering multiple times for this website.

I’m open to ideas. Really.
