    Thanks for the hints on this. I noticed you had linked to my post on making WordPress static. This little trick will most assuredly fix a little bug I encountered in making the blogs static. A few times, the browser would display the raw HTML instead of rendering it. With each post having a .html at the end, this just might fix that issue. I won’t test it until I have to convert another blog, though, but knowing the popularity of blogs at work, that might be really soon.

    Anyhow, thanks for the tip. It adds a bit of “professionallity” to a WP site.

    Hi Ammon, I actually found a workaround to that, which is why I edited that part of the article out shortly after publishing.

    With a few curl tweaks, you can get articles to export as index.html inside of the directories. Then, curl downloads the articles and makes the directories… which you can batch upload back to the server.

    Granted, your server will then have thousands of directories, each holding a single file… but it sure beats having a bunch of periods in the permalink structure.

    Which reminds me, I still need to report that flaw (though, at this point, it may have to stay since some already have permalinks based on that flaw).

    It’s the first time I commented here and I must say you share us genuine, and quality information for bloggers! Good job.
    p.s. You have a very good template for your blog. Where did you find it?

    The WordPress theme I use was custom-built for MechaWorks. It’s deployed on all MechaWorks sites.
