Finally I got around to moving the clearcove.ca website from WordPress to Jekyll.

I look forward to simple blogging in Markdown format and no more site outages because of WordPress hosting issues. It’s plain text files all the way down now.

The migration was pretty painless:

  • Exported WordPress site using the Jekyll exporter WP plugin.
  • Renamed wp-content/uploads/images/.
  • Moved all pages from about-clearcove.mdabout-clearcove/index.md for clean URLs.
  • Ported the layout markup from WP to Jekyll.
  • Pushed it all to Github pages.
  • Updated my A name DNS record.
  • Done, and no URLs broken.
