CS Is Changing. A Lot.

Long story short: I'm making big changes to CrazedSanity.com, like I've warned about before.  I think I'm going to convert it over to being a Wordpress site.

I've built some of my other sites using Wordpress, and I'm rather happy with the outcome:

There are some ramifications, though...

Account Information

It's likely that not all accounts are going to get transferred.

Transferring accounts is going to be a manual process that I have to do.  It's going to take some research and hacking around to get it done.


Links to old blogs won't work initially.  I'm going to import them, but it probably won't be right away.  There are tools to make this process faster, but the ones I've tried don't work "out of the box," or require more work than expected.

I'll try to get this hammered out quickly, but this comes after accounts.  Because the imported blogs have to get linked to their proper account.

I'll have to figure out a way to get images transferred from where they are now to something that Wordpress understands.  This could be a big thing, or it could be really simple.  Kinda depends on... well, a lot of technical things.


This is where it gets tricky.  All those campaigns and character sheets and stuff are linked to... well, stuff in the current database. Moving it over will require a fair amount of reworking.

The good news, however, is that TTORP could possibly get re-engineered to become a Wordpress plugin.  That's a pretty cool idea.  It would potentially give the application a lot more exposure.  Like, an order of magnitude more.

But it's going to take a lot of work.

The Buzzkill

I'm talking about the website here, BuzzKill.org.  Right now, it's fairly tightly linked to CrazedSanity.com, so it will definitely could get thrashed when I do the switch.  Could.  I'd probably move that to being a Wordpress site as well, and probably get it to be setup in a way where the same username works for both sites... but that's a rather technical thing too.  Lots of possible ramifications.  Ugh.
