Welcome to The blog of whall

Come on in and stay a while… laugh a little. Maybe even think. Read more...

Hi, This is Wayne. This is my site, my stuff, my blog, blahblahblah. The site itself is powered by WordPress and the Scary Little theme. I thought it was cool, and I still do.

So, it seems 2.6 is out, the “latest stable release of WordPress”

wordpress 2.6 is out

So, anyone dare me to upgrade first?  Don’t be shy.

I’m at 2.3.3 cuz I chickened out of upgrading to 2.5 or 2.5.1 after a few issues I had with some of the blogs I help support.

And lo, the people did comment thus:

    I upgraded yesterday. The only problem I had was trying to log back in.

    Apparently 2.6 handles cookies differently, and the new cookie won’t overwrite the old one so you have to go in delete your cookies manually.

    …at least I did.

    But other than that, it’s pretty awesome. There are some new features that come in handy.

    Did you watch the video? http://wordpress.org/development/2008/07/wordpress-26-tyner/

  7. Absurdist says:

    Dawg, My turn? Does this have something to do with a barrel?

    Dragon, I don’t mean to be dragon on with this joke, but I will anyway. Get it? DRAGON?

    Avi ain’t skeered. jew R tho.

    bucky, Nope, hadn’t seen the video. But your response prompts more questions – 1) what did you upgrade FROM and 2) what new features do you like?

    Ren, same two questions for you

    Robin, you too (the questions, that is)

    Abs, I wonder if your 2.5 issues are plugin-related. But I promise to upgrade you after I upgrade me.

  9. Bucky says:

    Whall – I upgraded from the 2.5 series. One of the newest features (in 2.6) that I like is the fact that you can use GEARS (or TURBO as it is called in wordpress). Your blogs css files and images will be stored locally so your admin pages load faster.

    I also liked the added avatar support. They went from using only gravatar to also supporting, identicon, wavatar, and monsterID.

    The image control is completely revamped also. Much more user friendly. I know user friendly doesn’t always = better, but in this case I believe it does.

    There is also a little bubble above the plugins link that notifies you if any of your plugins need updated.

    …..just to name a few.

    I suck at backing up and have heard too many horror stories.

    So. Um. No.

    Have I told you lately that I’m just here for LOL cats?

    Just checking

  12. martymankins says:

    I’m at 2.5.1 and have no plans to go to 2.6 for at least the next few weeks. I’m normally pretty good about verifying that the few plug-ins I use, I try to make sure they work well.

    Wish I had a test web site I could load all of the latest releases and plug-ins to test before loading them live on my blog. May have to find such a site, unless there is one out there already that people can use.

Want to comment?

Hey, we all want to share our voice. And I particularly love comments, especially if you took the time to read my blog entry. I'll take the time to read your comment, I swear! But due to spammers, robots, and the fact that I want my blog to be PG rated, I need to approve the comments. This should be same day, but please don't get mad if it takes me a while to approve the comment.


PLEASE help keep this blog family-friendly by refraining from profanity and vulgarity.
