Still in Work

Still working on getting things set up. I’ve been very busy with work and had to take a dog to the vet this morning so I haven’t had a lot of time, but you may have noticed that the sidebar is growing.

I haven’t come up with a solution to the image thing yet. I’m thinking that, since the blog content is stored in a database, it might be possible to use an SQL query or script to simply find image links, strip the existing path, and replace it with a new path.

I’ve asked a couple Database people I know what they think about it, but if anyone out in internetland has any input on that possibility, I’m all ears.

In the meantime, I’m going to start at the beginning and work my way forward and just replace the blogger hosted images with locally hosted ones. Doing that will probably take several months if not a year to get them all changed over, but that’s my only other option, so I may as well get started on it.

At any rate, just wanted to give an update.

  1. Greg, you are my hero!

    I was starting to try to play with SQL queries to do what I wanted, but the plugin you linked above is working great.

    Actually, the original author stopped updating it so if you’re using a recent version of WordPress and new blogger, his original script won’t work. Fortunately, if you read down to near the bottom of the comments on that post, one of his readers updated the script and the updated version is working great.

    You’ve saved me a TON of work and/or the hassle of learning enough about SQL to write a query or script that would work (knowledge which I’d probably never use again and would forget within a few months). I’m forever grateful.
