Migration dotclear -> wordpress

So I just finalized the migration from dotclear to wordpress Today. I have wanted to migrate for a while but never had the chance to do it.A few reasons why I switched to wordpress from dotclear:

  • Dotclear is a French project, made by French people for French people. This is rather limiting since the UI is all messed up (a few elements are in French others in English even if the default language is set to English). The code is also all Franglish (Franglais) which the stupidest and most annoying thing ever.
  • I wanted something flexible that would let me write HTML directly (no BB codes and whatnot).
  • I am going to write blog posts in English and French and wordpress correctly supports UTF-8 so there shouldn’t be a problem would I want to write something in Arabic
  • Because I can !
