Converting WordPress from Gengo to WPML – part 2

In this post I am going to investigate the structure of categories and tags in WordPress.

Converting WordPress from Gengo to WPML – part 1

As I described in the posts about upgrading WordPress I am investigating automatic conversion from Gengo to WPML. Of course I searched in the WPML site and I found a few threads in the forum.

WordPress upgrade (2)

I have WordPress upgraded to 2.8.3 without problems. Just had to be careful about Gengo activation and the permalink refresh (see previous post). Some people have reported that Gengo wouldn’t be compatible with WordPress 2.8. With the patch that I mentioned in my previous post it does work however. But I must admit that I have been hacking in my copy of Gengo in the past so it could be that the official version still has problems that I don’t have any more.

Anyway, I think the Gengo situation is just too fragile. Therefore I am now investigating the WPML plugin. More about that in a later posting.

Update August 22, 2009: Although reading the site now seems to work with my patch to Gengo, I experience problems on the Admin page. Some of the popups don’t work e.g. in the `Edit a post’ page.

WordPress upgrade

About a week ago I upgraded my WordPress installation. Before I forget how it went I want to describe it here.

Sexism in computing

Quote (+1)

The entire programming community has a kind of endemic sexism — or at least an almost complete lack of sensitivity to the concerns of women — that arises from being an overwhelmingly male-dominated profession in a sexist culture. Too many male programmers seem to have no interest in accommodating women, and far too many of the rest are unwilling to speak up about it.
