This site is now live on WordPress, having converted from b2evolution. While there wasn’t anything specifically wrong with b2evolution, my recent experiences with a few sites using WordPress has shown me how much easier WordPress is to use. I have my old theme back, since the b2evo version of the theme was broken by an application update awhile back.
I used a conversion script to convert. It was half successful. While it did import users and posts, it did not import any category or tags, requiring a lot of rework. The real problem with the script is that roughly 1/3 of the posts got truncated. This required a manual check of every post, which took far longer than I would have liked.
Overall, I’m not sure how much time the conversion script really saved me, because copying all of the posts manually might have been easier becaus e it would not have required all of the rework and double-checking.
