There are also several thing I don't like about Habari
- It isn't able to do podcasts. For a long time, this will be a showstopper for me to transfer my main blog, Shards of Consciousness, to Habari. Until there is a plugin comparable to Podpress, Shards will be staying on it's current platform.
- The WordPress importer isn't quite done, yet. For example, you can now add two users with the same name and password. Also, the nicename for your WordPress categories isn't imported, so the slug is used for both the tag slug and text, and drafts are imported as published posts.
- The metaweblog plugin doesn't do pages. This isn't the fault of Habari, but appears to be a result of the metaweblog api. This limitation can be worked around be adding to the api as WordPress did. If I had my druthers, you would be able to add, delete, and edit posts, pages, and tags through the metaweblog api.
Fortunately, as I said in an earlier post, Habari is in an early stage of development. The main developers are responsive to feature requests and bug reports. These should all be fixed before an actual release.
