Switched to WordPress

I’ve switched my blog to wordpress to try to reduce the processor resources needed with pyblosxom, and to get a working captcha (the pictures of letters) system for comments, to avoid spam.

To keep the old rss feed url,

https://www.murrayc.com/blog/?flav=rss

working, by pointing it at the new feed url,

https://www.murrayc.com/blog/?feed=rss

I’ve tried the following RewriteRule in my blog/.htaccess file,

RewriteRule ^(.*)?flav=rss $1/?feed=rss [R]

and this

RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} flav=rss
RewriteRule ^blog blog/?feed=rss [R=301,L]

but neither seem to have an effect.

Update: This seems to have fixed it, though I’m sure it’s not perfect:

RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} flav=rss
RewriteRule ^(.*) /blog/?feed=rss [R=301,L]

  1. if you want to reduce processor time maybe wordpress is not the best option, as it generates the pages dynamically
    anyway, if you want to stick with wordpress you should install wp-cache by Ricardo Galli (http://mnm.uib.es/gallir/wp-cache-2/)

    btw, a akismet from the creator of wordpress is a better anti spam solution than any captchas or spam karma
