wordpress has features like entering a keyword v.s. movable type which forces you

to use a typekey service – not in my interest or the interest of my


A new version of Movable type is out but don’t see anything great in it – so now I am

seriously considering migrating to wordpress!

  1. WordPress offers an import feature that allows you to move posts and comments from Movable Type to WordPress.
    Set up a demo wordpress installation, go to Import and select Movable Type.
