Blog running on Community Server v1.1

Finally I found the time and tools to migrate my blog from .Text 0.95 to Community Server 1.1 from Telligent Systems (founded by Rob Howard, former member of the ASP.NET team). There were several reasons for me to make the transition:

  • better user experience, both for the blog readers and the blog writer(s)
  • integrated with other web applications for photo galleries and forums (the ones that drive www.asp.net/forums as well)
  • improved control over feedback, trackbacks, etc (helps to fight blog spam)
  • much more I still have to discover myself ;-)

The biggest trouble I had initially was to migrate the .Text blog content lossless to the Community Server installation. Luckily I found the ".Text to Community Server" tool on the Telligent website, which did a great job! It migrated all of my blog posts, categories, feedbacks, trackbacks, view counts, etc.

Both RSS readers and online readers of my blog should experience no troubles at all when viewing my blog, because of the redirections I made. If you find a problem however, please let me know. The new address is http://community.bartdesmet.net/blogs/bart.
