This blog runs on WordPress 2.7 but…

This is the fifth blog I upgraded to WordPress 2.7. I notice the followings :

1) The new WordPress 2.7 folder has over 700+ files. When I am uploading the new files, at least 4-14 files will not get uploaded probably due to my bad internet connection. So, I need to make sure that all those files are manually selected and uploaded.

2) It takes me at least 40 minutes to 2 hours to upgrade just one blog.

3) And the worst problem I face is the awfully long time I need to navigate. It is like the WordPress 2.7 is so heavy and slow and I have to wait a while to go to each option.

Do you guys face the same thing? Approving comment, send comment to spam, write new post and just about everything on the new dashboard takes an awfully long time to load. I have observed several blogs and I don’t think it is my broadband as other sites load normally.

Yayayaya, all I have for WordPress 2.7 is complaint after complaint. You can read all the spanking and cool new features from thousand of blogs out there but I seem to be the only one complaining. Hmmm….

    I would recommend going and getting the WordPress Automatic Upgrade Plug-in. It only took me about 5 minutes if that to upgrade my blog to 2.7.

    After you get to 2.7 though you will no longer need the plug-in because 2.7 has the updater already built in. :)

    Hope this helps!

    I was surprised how fast the install was done, I think in less than 10 minutes. The only thing that really takes time is backing up the database and checking whether the plugins are still working.

    I am a bit reluctant to use WP 2.7. I felt that upgrading the WP to 2.7 will surely make my blog upload slower. But who knows maybe in the future i will upgrade it

    For the past few upgrades I’ve been using WordPress Automatic Upgrade plugin.. It’s just click, click, click.. and done in less than 5 minutes.
    I was quite hesitant to upgrade to 2.7 but after watching video and testing it on one of my blog, I upgraded to 2.7 and I really like it! The interface is so cool and allows me to be more productive in blogging.. I can also rearrange the items on screen so that my frequently accessed items are within reach without scrolling. :)
    There is something called Turbo using Google Gear in 2.7 which I activated. It is supposed to speed up blogging process I think but I have not noticed any difference so far.
