I have some readers and users of WP who told me about the bugs in the newly released WordPress and had cautioned me against upgrading. I did a little lurking around the support forum and did not see any major problems brought forward by the members.
Anyway, during the weekend, I had upgraded almost all my blogs to WordPress 2.1.
Personal blog – 1,800 posts : Upgraded with no problem
Womenblog – Upgraded from 2.05 to 2.1 with no problem
The rest of the blogs – Upgraded from 2.06 to 2.1 with absolutely no problem. In fact, after a while, I got so quick, I even forgot to deactivate plugin and just dumped the files over. Also no problem.
I like the new dashboard with the extra buttons. I love the autosave feature. I absolutely adore the new Askimet 2.0 which worksso well with the Bad Behaviours (latest version). Now, I don’t have three-four pages of spam each morning.
I use a lot of plugins and hacks. None of them gives me any problem as well. I read that the Ultimate Tag Warrior may be give some problems so I had the deactivated.
The only puzzling this is I am not sure why on some of my blogs dashboard, I have the option of visual and code whereas, on others, there is none. Which means I have to go to User to select/deselect the option.
I can’t figure out why. Anyone? Anyway, I use code most of the time because it is easier to paste my Flickr and PPP codes over.
So, still afraid of upgrading?
