Blog now running on WordPress

After having major, and unsolvable, problems with MovableType (MovableType was causing segfaults in Perl) for over half a year I finally switched to WordPress for hosting my blog.

I did consider SharePoint Server 2010 for hosting my blog, but the out-of-the-box support is nowhere near the possibilities with WordPress (or any other major blogging framework).

Configuration

After trying some themes I settled for the Paperpunch Theme by The Theme Foundry.

This is completed with the following plugins:

  • Akismet
    Akismet checks your comments against the Akismet web service to see if they look like spam or not.
  • Google XML Sitemaps
    This plugin will generate a special XML sitemap which will help search engines like Google, Yahoo, Bing and Ask.com to better index your blog.
  • SI CAPTCHA Anti-Spam
    Adds CAPTCHA anti-spam methods to WordPress on the comment form, registration form, login, or all. This prevents spam from automated bots.
  • TweetMeme Retweet Button
    Adds a button which easily lets you retweet your blog posts.
  • Twitter Widget Pro
    A widget that properly handles twitter feeds, including @username, #hashtag, and link parsing.
  • WP Super Cache
    Very fast caching plugin for WordPress.

If somebody has comments or suggestions, please let me now.
