WordPress migration, photo trouble


in Geek stuff, Internet matters

As part of the process of Blogger to WordPress migration, I really need a plugin that acts like the ‘Image Upload’ function in Blogger. It needs to be able to take a 1024×768 JPG file, upload it to my web server, create a thumbnail in one of a few sizes, and insert the thumbnail into my post as a link to the large version.

Does anyone know of such a plugin, or another easy way to do this?

Also, how can I configure WordPress to automatically mail new posts to an email account? I like having all my blog entries in my GMail account so that I can search them from within it.

Another strange and very annoying bug: on all posts that begin with photos immediately followed by a heading in bold, the WordPress version leaves an open [strong] tag that makes everything below it formatted in bold. I can fix them manually, but there are dozens and dozens.

Try wp-plugins.net – click on “External Tool Integration” and scroll down to “Galleries”. You might find something useful there.

Another bug: the links on the ‘Oxford blogs’ page should not be the same colour as the rest of the text.

On my computer, the links appear to be dark green (the same as the links in the comments section!)

Try a new theme to see if the photos strong tag bug is linked to WP or this theme’s style sheet. You do come across the strangest things in other people’s CSS.

As for the mail your posts to you, I’m really not sure. But I’ll have a think about it.

The thumbnail problem is fixed in WordPress 2.1.
