Migration from Movable Type to b2evo
With all the frustration about MT3's licensing conditions, we've been asked a lot about a migration tool from MT to b2evo... just like many other blogtool makers I guess ;)
The bad news is that right now, we can't offer much more than our brand new version 0.9 and some cut & paste... :-/
The good news is that we're working on a migration script. You'll have it in less than two weeks... at most! :D I'd promise it for tomorrow if we hadn't already rescheduled so much of our normal lives to arrange for the timely release of the 0.9 beast! :roll:
For the last year, b2evo has been designed as a Free, Open-Source, GNU GPL alternative to MT. We have already included all the bells and whistles you might expect as an MT user, so trust me, the migration script is going to be there too! :yes:
b2evo is a fabulous blog tool. The MT migration script worked quite well. I was very surprised at the plethora of options available. The only qualms I have are with the way previously stylized quotation marks and apostrophes showed up as some odd character. And that’s easily fixed. I love the script. Thank you!
B2evo’s committment to providing the best blog tool out there continues to shine. Not only is the new version matching (and surpassing WordPress), but they are eager to respond to the sudden demand of people who want to move their MT installations.
