  1.       Should be sorted now.  Incidentally, have you seen this?  <a href="https://wordpress.org/plugins/jekyll-exporter/">https://wordpress.org/plugins/jekyll-exporter/</a>  - may help if you've not yet progressed too far.
    

    I’m interested in your decision to move.  I was tempted but ultimately felt WP gave me more flexibility.

  3.       I found a plugin to do the conversion and it did work except for images. I then used bash loops with pandoc to convert them to markdown. Then a load more bash loops and perl one liners to remove the header added by the conversion and add a fresh one. It has pretty much worked, now just need to tidy up and check links.

  5.       Like you I have nothing against WordPress, it has served me well, but I had an older blog that I'd never converted, so this is bringing them both into one place.
    

    Have to say I love the idea that I can carry my markdown files and host them wherever I chose.

  7.       I was tempted by that too, and the idea that good old static html would just be simpler. But as you have indicated, the conversion is not exactly a cakewalk!

  9.       I am surprised that there isn't more built into Jekyll, stuff you take for granted like galleries, tag clouds etc. All do able but only with effort.
    

    Haven’t even worked out if you can do image text flow wrapping.

    But I hope this is it. Any future change would hopeful be to another Jekyll our markdown based system.

  11.       Saw your post/email separately - congrats! No small effort indeed. Look forward to hearing your thoughts on improved or affected efficiency a month or two down the line.
