i’ve been thinking about changing to word press. my provider has just started to offer it as a blogging package, so i would not have to do anything to set it up, except press the install button on my site’s control panel. it looks like the feature set is a little better and the community is larger. but what i am really looking for is 3 features. <br />
<br />
1. adding the security feature to comments so that all of you faithful reader will only need to type some number sequence that you see in an image in order to post your witty comments back to me. that will keep out the unwanted spam postings that i have recently been attracting.<br />
<br />
2. integration with my phone. i want to find a program for my winmob5 phone that i could blog with and automatically upload entries from, including photos and video that i take with the thing. that would be quite sweet.<br />
<br />
3. podcast ready. i’ve been thinking about a few ideas for a podcast. serendipity does not appear to have the rss feed building capabilities built into it. i wanna try wp or one of the plugins for wp that does support easy creation of podcast content.<br />
<br />
oh, and maybe a 4th thing…<br />
<br />
4. more modules, templates, plugins, etc that i could use to customize the site and make into an even cooler site that it already is…<br />
<br />
now, i think wp has all of these features, but i am still investigating and i am also investigation how the migration process works, so i can move all my content over and not have to re-type it. we’ll see how it goes.<br />
