Whew.  That seemed to go off with only a minor hitch, which was easily corrected.  You probably may not notice much of a change from your perspective, but that is the way it should be.  All of the changes happened “behind the scenes”, so what I see when I work in the admin panel of WordPress is completely different now.  I have not tinkered with a lot of the changes yet but so far I HAVE installed a plug in from within the admin panel – whereas before I had to download them manually and install them, so I really really like this new feature.  It is going to save quite a bit of space on my computer hard drive now if I don’t have to download everything!  Although I wonder if it saves it on my server as a zip or if it unzips everything as it is storing it to my host’s server?  I will have to look into that.

Anyway, so far i like what I am seeing and am glad this went smoothly… Now to upgrade my other blog. 🙂

Beware, construction ahead

I am going to attempt to upgrade to WP 2.7 shortly.

I hope all goes well… If not, I hope I can get things back to normal without a lot of headache.

So if you visit this site and see a huge mess of HTML or nothing at all, well… Come back in a few and see if things are back to normal.  I am hoping after this upgrade I don’t have to deal with manual upgrades anymore.  I am looking forward to that for sure.

WordPress 2.7 is available – yay!
Posted on December 11th, 2008 @ 10:28 am

I’m giddy, but I can’t install it until I get home!!  Agh!

Unfortunately I did not install it using my host’s autoinstaller, I installed it manually myself, so I have to download everything and unzip and back up stuff, blah blah, and then upload it to my host before I can try it out.  I’d try installing WP from my host but then I’d have to install all my plug-ins and get everything updated just the way I had it before and that would be a huge PITA… so I’ll just update it manually later.  I think one of the features in 2.7 is being able to upgrade WP remotely like how their plug-ins update, which I am especially intersted in since I did not use my host’s installer.  Not only that but often my host is a little behind on the updates, so, say this update came out today, but my host will not get it for a few more days, if not a week or more.

Drat!! I just realized my husband and I have a show to go to tonight, and we won’t even be home until bedtime, so I won’t be able to update until tomorrow at the earliest. AAGHHH!!! :please:

Maybe if I have enough time I’ll see if I can update it via my remote connection to home… :dlaugh:

You’re probably not a spambot – honest!

Sorry if you tried commenting before and was told you were a spambot.  I was trying out a plugin for wordpress, and apparently it thinks real people are spam bots.

Off with its head!  I uninstalled it, so hopefully people can comment as they please now!  So sorry about that!

Something else I need to turn off is WordPress’s automatic ability to ‘nofollow’ any links I add myself.  That will have to wait ’til later though, apparently I have a meeting to go to that I forgot about until Outlook reminded me!

Anyway, I would like to thank Monica @ Oh Fer Cryin’ Out Loud for letting me know my blog was being mean and blocking innocent people from commenting! And I’m sorry your link won’t get any SE credit until I fix THAT issue later.
