This evening I embarked on a major journey to upgrade the WordPress installation that One Man’s Blog was running on to the latest version. This was a very big deal because it involved skipping two entire releases. We went from version 2.0 to 2.3 (never even touched 2.1 or 2.2).
I’m pleased to report that except for one brief scare in the middle, the upgrade went fairly smoothly.
Most of you won’t notice anything different, except that hopefully you will see a slight increase in the speed that pages load. But on the back end there are a number of features that make my life as a blogger much easier.
Now that we’re up to the latest release, there are a number of new plugins and features that I want to try to exploit going forward. One of which those of you that comment will notice immediately!
During the upgrade, I took the opportunity to enable comment editing for a limited period of time by comment authors. So, if you leave a comment and then notice you misspelled a word or something, you can edit it for up to 15 minutes before it becomes a matter of record! Hope you guys enjoy that little treat.
So, over the next couple of days if you notice something doesn’t quite seem right please let me know so I can get it fixed. And if you have any suggestions for how to make things better around here then by all means please share them!
