Dammit, WordPress

Few things enrage me more than wrestling with blog software. All I want to do is fix the archive links so that outside references to popular posts imported from movable type still work. Messing about with mod-rewrite, random plugins and generally wasting my morning are not part of that agenda. All it needs is one extra field that I can manually type my own permalink into that would map to a specific post. I don’t NEED an algorithmic solution here, that’s the beauty of URLs. They’re just text! If only this blasted software would get out of the way and do the simplest thing that could possibly work.
