Moving the "Energy from Thorium" blog to Wordpress

Post by Kirk Sorensen » Mar 15, 2010 1:57 pm

Very soon (possibly today) the Energy from Thorium blog will be moved from its current site to its new permanent home at

http://energyfromthorium.com/

and also will begin using Wordpress as the blog host.

New site is up and running now, but many of the links haven't been restored yet, and the new "template" isn't ready yet either. But it's a good start.

I've got the blogroll mostly restored, although I miss the feature where it sorts the blogroll by most recent post. I've also got a number of the other link lists restored as well. Hopefully the new template will be ready by tomorrow and we can start testing it.

For those who have asked about the "intro", "advantages", type-stuff, don't worry, all of those are coming back in a big way.

The blog has a new template, courtesy of Ellis Benus, and I'm beginning to rebuild some of the pages that were in there before.

The Energy from Thorium site is going to be moved to another server soon.

That will affect this forum for a few days, as things get straightened out. I'll probably have to shut down the server while the move takes place, so don't be too excited if the board is out of commission for a bit.

The move is going to happen in the next day. Don't be too terribly surprised if something you post around this time gets lost, since we're not entirely sure which "copy" of the forum we'll be posting to during the transition.

Appears the move was successful. Do you know if any posts were lost in the move?

Excellent. I've done web development before and it's easy to lose data on a move like this. Well done.

Sorry for the downtime today. With the move to the new server, "bots" were scanning the site extensively and running our bandwidth way up to the point where our account got temporarily suspended. We fixed some of the obvious troubles but are on probation a bit so let's hope we don't get into more trouble.
