As you can see I have managed to import the previous 6 months worth of the Rant and the Diaries. Things have sped up considerably since yesterday. I had all 36 months worth of the rant archives to go through and even using the replace function in MS Word it was taking way too long. Until I downloaded a freeware program called BK ReplaceEm. This puppy is more powerful than I can ever figure out, but the beauty is that it will do several replacements over a group of files in one click. It took a while to set up, but once I got it going it corrected 95% of everything that needed to be fixed. The rest was done by hand in Word. When it came to the Diaries I set up the archive files as year, so I only have 3 big files to fix. I’m still importing them in 3 month groups just in case something goes hinky it will be a manageable fix.
I may have to work a little more on the template here before I import more. The category archives come out with out the space between posts. In the date based ones, only the first post on the page is inside a box, the rest just run across the background.
And at point am I going to exceed the limit of posts in my database? I was getting all kinds of db crashes a year ago which is what prompted a change to Pivot. I was blaming that on the fact that I didn’t have access to a MySQL db at the Barndoor Fan Club web hoster, on mr-miata I do. Is 2500 going to be too much? I guess we’ll see.
