Upgrade To WordPress 2.1

wordpress logoI have upgraded to wordpress 2.1 and so far so good. I am sorry the site was a bit screwy earlier today, but who knew that upgrading from wordpress 1.5.1.3 straight to 2.1 would cause your theme and umm everything else to break. Oh well, everything seems to work now and lucky for me the database tables all seem to have survived.
My fist impressions with 2.1 are that its very slick on the back end, I really am digging the widgets feature, I am going to writing a few of them, I had custom hacked my old upload file feature so this new one is going to need a little hacking as well. Frankly its horrible that the thumbnail feature is so bad after so long. But you know a little hacking keeps you strong.
If you notice anything that seems to be broken let me know.

  1. Wow!

    You updated from 1.5

    That is wild… but it sounds like you are pretty savvy with programing so I would imagine that you probably had a heavily modified WordPress 1.5.

  2. Yea I had been using if for a while so a bunch of core files, and every file in the theme was heavily modified…the upgrade was a bit scary but it all came out fine.

    I think I am going to be forced to write an image upload plug in just to make it easier to use images. And for some reason the visual editor is about the most worthless thing ever, but again maybe after some use it will grow on me.

    Hope you like the site.
