UPDATE: Shuttering the site is not an option. While some have been lured away by the siren song of Facebook, I don’t find it to be the same intimate community as Teh Squeak. I can’t imagine RabBiT expressing the same tribulations on Facebook or Paddy or Sven or me or any other Gerbil. This is truly a special place, if currently a little under utilized. It will remain. I will find a solution. In the meantime: Keep Calm and Carry On.
Here is where we stand:
- I can migrate the site to WordPress.com but each user will have to reregister on WordPress.com. When I tested the import of this site, I have to assign posts and comments to the new registered users. That means that until everyone who has posted since 2013 is registered, I can’t import Teh Squeaky Wheel prior posts.
- I can use DNN which I’ve used in the past and blogging platform “A” that includes a WordPress like admin panel but no import capability for now – I would have to create a procedure to accomplish that. Wait! Did I say I? I meant someone with more skill and who has more time, what with not having to do Friday Night Captioning Contests.
- I can use DNN and blogging platform “B” than does not include a WordPress like admin panel but does include the ability to import a complete WordPress site.
All options allow for posting videos.
The choice is yours. Discuss amongst your damn selves.
