This was a long and laborious task.. It took a lot of research, coming across some extremely useful websites and a little bit of coding to get the job done.

I’ll write a full report on this later on but for now, here’s how we did it for purplemass:

  1. Converted our Serendipity blog to a Movable Type format, ensuring the data was saved in UTF-8
  2. Import data into WordPress (edited the MT import file)
  3. Some posts ended having the wrong authors – this was changed manually
