Problems with wordpress

Firstly, generally it's fine - works behind the scenes - and 'just does it'. Disadvantages are that it's php based, and I don't know php. This makes modifying it a pain. In addition, all my permalinks are slightly different. This unfortunately means I'll have broken links within the site. This should be minimised as the old site is still there (and some links will go to that) - however, it does mean that the internal consistency isn't what I'd like, and I can't see a fast way to fix that. The only method that springs to mind (short of lots of programming, having first taught myself HOW to do it) is to scroll through and check links manually. A bit of a pain, and I'm not going to be able to do it anytime soon...

... so, I would appreciate a comment if you see a broken link (or if the link suddently changes the look of the thing, that means you've gone to the old site). I'll fix anything commented as a priority.
