My installation and integration of WordPress is going fairly well so far. I have to say I've been vaguely impressed with the solidity of the whole application, despite some annoying quirks.

For example, most of its information-returning functions default to echoing their result, rather than returning them. This is bad coding.

Also, there is a tendancy for WordPress to convert harmless quote symbols into high-Unicode fancy characters, just as Word does. I wouldn't mind so much except that I intend to post code every once in a while. Lucky for me, I found a nice plugin to do the trick.
