More übergeekery

Jump to Comments

I have been wondering what I might do as a first run for a basic Drupal site, basically to give me a project to help me learn the CMS.

“Could I migrate WordPress to it, using xml?” I wondered, geekily.

Yes! For there on the excellent Drupal site was a link to a Drupal module that would do this very thing.  

Thereupon, I spent a bit of time installing the module, and all the other bits that you always have to add to make anything work with a tech installation. How pleased with myself I was – for I was king of the journo geeks! 

Then of course, after clicking the update button, I refreshed the screen and found … nothing. Yes – just a blank white browser window. How my inflated sense of self esteem deflated rapidly.

After some cursing and turning the Apache server on and off, I figured I should just delete the module. Which of course instantly solved the problem. 

So now I’m back to square one. I reckon it’s all because there is some version clash between the module and the 6.x Drupal I have installed. More fun this evening maybe. Unless I get a life…
