Pissed off with Blogger removing FTP4February 6th, 2010Blogging
Well, I don’t know about anyone else, but I am bloody pissed off about Blogger removing FTP support from their website – and as a result, I am have now made a WordPress version of the website (which is where this is being published from, so hopefully this is all working now).
I get the reasons why they are doing this – its obviously costing them more money to run it than the share of the users dictates should be spent on it, but its very frustrating. I’ve helped a few people setup blogs using FTP to get them moving along, and much as I enjoy using WordPress and have quite enjoyed setting it up today, it was much simpler to easily create a blog with a very, very simple interface for someone that isn’t that web savvy to use.
It was also very useful for setting up an area of a website such as /blog/, in a sub-folder of the website without having to do the WordPress installation (which I did find quite easy, but fortunately my existing host was able to support).
Now to be fair, I have been talking about moving to WordPress for some time now, but I have finally got my arse in gear to start doing it
Hopefully this might mean the start of more frequent posting too!
