The Manhattan Institute had been running their Public Sector Inc blog on Movable Type for years and wanted to move to WordPress, but were unsure of the best way to migrate, especially given the very limited support offered by Movable Type for those who want to leave the platform. Thankfully I met Manhattan’s Communication VP Lindsay Craig (now president of the National Review Institute) at the State Policy Network annual meeting in 2012 and told her about our TP2WP.com conversion tool and how ReadyMadeWeb had considerable experience rescuing folks from both MovableType and its sometimes uglier cousin TypePad.
Late this summer, the folks behind Public Sector Inc—the brilliant Tatyana Kustus, Kasia Zabawa, and Stephen Eide—began working with ReadyMadeWeb on making the transition to WordPress. After a few rounds of design, data conversion, and a few hours of manual content massaging, we’ve launched Public Sector Inc as a new designed and fully mobile-responsive website.
We’re extremely happy with how this project has turned out and grateful to have worked with such talent folks at the Manhattan Institute!
