Stupid WordPress

I came across this error pretty randomly when searching up (and viewing) and old post of mine – and it was this: when I shifted from Blogger to WordPress, WordPress applied its own stupid formatting to all my posts. Consequently, none of them have line breaks (still a problem), but more importantly none of the videos I embedded were showing up. Instead, WordPress was displaying their ugly embed code. I knew this would happen for new posts I made, but never thought it’d do the same for older ones. My bad. Maybe staying on a system like Blogger which used to maintain static pages to WordPress, which generates pages on-the-fly was something I forgot. So, between a bit of online testing, I sorted out the mess. Should work now. Sad part? Quite astonishingly, in most posts Rach had made, WordPress didn’t even keep the embed code!

    @Rach: This was seriously quite strange, how it specifically went and deleted all the videos from YOUR posts. :s Anyway, I restored the authorship for the posts you wrote, whichever one I came across, that is.
