Today’s Project: Backup all Pages by Brad Brad
A platform move for this blog is coming.  WordPress is frozen on ver. 4.9.9 which is fine by me, but untenable in the long term because eventually I will start missing needed security upgrades.  Also, I’m beginning to suspect that my Indieweb stuff is not working everywhere with everyone and I’m not willing to put the time in tracking down where the problems are on a platform I intend to leave.

Last time I exported from a WordPress site, pages were included – you can either export them separately, or as part of “all content” – but it’s definitely good to have a manual backup, just in case!

I definitely feel your frustrations with IndieWeb on WordPress. I’ve had so much trouble and spent so much time getting things setup “just so,” and I’m still not quite there. I’m sure it would’ve been fine if I’d stuck to one of the recommended themes and default plugin options… but then I wouldn’t be running my site. Even though a lot of my issues appear to be fixed now, half the time I still don’t trust things not to break seemingly at random.

Add to that small frictions like how hard it is to post a like/reply/bookmark type of post from mobile, and frustrations start to mount up.

Have you decided what you’re moving to yet?

    This is good to know! I’m also worried about the other end, where I might migrate too, if they will add my pages on import.

    This is the tame stuff. WordPress plans to keep going once they have the Gutenberg editor integrated fully and start turning widgets, themes and plugins into blocks. That’s all fine but I can foresee keeping the Indieweb features going as being a huge job for Indieweb.org volunteers. So, for me, it’s better to move.

    I think it’s going to be either Micro.blog or B2evolution.net. With Micro.blog I’m kinda waiting on some planned improvements to the blogs. If I go with B2evolution, there are no Indieweb features. I know B2 is looking into it but no time frame as to when. Anyway I’m trying to wait and see what Micro.blog rolls out and if that fits my needs.
