Personal blog (migrated from WordPress)

Don’t know if it qualifies as “cool” site, but I moved my personal blog from WordPress to Hugo - was quite some work transfering the ~1.000 articles and all the media.

Main reason was that WordPress and my personal needs grew apart during the last months / years and I was looking for a solution that better suited my needs.

The theme was also migrated from WordPress with some small changes here and there, the search and comments are PHP-based. I wanted to minimize the use of Javascript as much as possible, only Javascript-component (and only 3rd party component) is the lightbox script.



@jmooring Thanks and also thanks for all the work you do here in the forums!

I used a custom Perl script to create the Hugo site right out of the WP database.
