Blog moved from JRoller

This is the first new post at this blog's new location - blog.joda.org.

The new blog is backed by Blogger which has a much better setup than JRoller. Hopefully readers will find commenting less stressful from now on.

I have also managed to import the old posts and comments, based on previous migration experiences. I would write up my experiences, but I don't think there are many more people left on JRoller looking to migrate. Contact me scolebourne|joda|org if you want to know how I made the move.

At Blogger, I did have some initial problems with line endings. However, I found that this could be fixed as follows:

  • Set "Convert line breaks" to "No" in the Settings/Formatting tab.
  • Set "Edit HTML Line Breaks" to "Press Enter for line breaks" in the Post options (at the bottom of editing a post).
  • Set "Compose Settings" to "Show HTML literally" in the Post options (at the bottom of editing a post).

If you have any major issues with the formatting/colours in your browser, please let me know in the comments.

  1. Indeed blogger is a better platform than JRoller but JRoller was one of the favorite among most Java blogger, sadly it doesn't keep it promises.
