A big thank you goes out to all of your who have at one point or another read my blog. It has come to my attention over the course of the past few months that a few things I took for granted on my blog are no longer functioning as expected. These include:
- No longer receiving email notifications when comments are submitted
- RSS feed is duplicating items multiple times after posting new content
- Categories disappear in the navigation
- Split search engine SEO between custom domain URL and blog hosting default URL
This is not a negative against my current blog hosting provider. They have done a great job since I started blogging back in 2009. However it is time for me to find a new platform and update various parts of my blog. I’m currently looking at Orchard CMS as the primary option for a new platform. I first heard about Orchard CMS from a fellow SharePoint technologist Andrew Connell who migrated his blog from Subtext to Orchard as well (see his posts on the matter here). I am still testing out various tools and migration strategy but hoping this won’t take more than a month or two of planning and execution. It will not be a quick and easy migration but it will be worth the time and effort.
In the meantime you will probably notice my go quiet on blogging. I’ve also disabled RSS feed syndication due to the duplication issue mentioned above. I hope you’ll enjoy the re-launch when things are migrated.
