So what was the deciding factor? Well they just put out the second Release Candidate for WordPress 1.2 so I grabbed a copy and tossed it up in Momma’s folder. Booted up Firefox and went to her blog and realized that I had just wiped out all the work I had done in converting the templates for Momma’s Corner from MT to WordPress.
It’s my own fault. I should have picked up on the fact that I had to edit the index.php file to change the template. WordPress doesn’t store your site’s templates separately like MT or EE do so when you upgrade your install you have to keep in mind that you’ll be overwriting the index.php and CSS files. If you don’t you end up wiping out your work like I just did. I’m. Not. Happy. And that’s enough to put me off of using WordPress for the time being. For whatever reason I’m able to get my head around how ExpressionEngine does things a lot more easily than I can WordPress and the fact that I can upgrade it without destroying my templates is a big bonus. Plus it has tons of goodies. Besides, this way I can put the Jenkins Online page to good use for a change.
Now, depending on how enraptured I end up with EE after working with converting 5 blogs over to it will probably play a role in whether I end up using it for SEB.
