Over the weekend, we finally migrated the grandJDM posts over to JNC. You can find all the archived fabulousity by using the search box to your left. All of the info-rich text is there, but eagle-eyed techies have noticed the pictures, while visible, are still on the grandJDM server.
That’s cause WordPress (which both sites used) has a stupid system for image management. If anyone is interested in the issue and can possibly help us with a solution, please read on. We’d be greatly appreciative and may even send some nifty JDM swag your way.
WordPress’s requires that you upload images through their Media Library interface, which is unfortunately only available during on the screen when you edit an individual post. So if we simply FTP all the files from grandJDM over to JNC, they won’t show up.
Someone with sufficient technical skillz could probably whip up a simple batch uploader, but that has yet to happen. That means currently the only way to move the images over is to do it one by one, saving each image onto your computer and uploading it through the WordPress Media Library interface. Argh!
There’s also some other minor things (like image alignment and text color) that could use some touching up, which could be done at the same time. But if you want to see the next issue of JNC magazine before 2009, this isn’t possible for us to undertake.
Any ideas? Does someone with A LOT of free time and some WordPress savvy want to pitch in? Does the promise of some JDM toys and JNC gear sweeten the deal? Let us know in the comments or send us an email. Domo arigato!
