WordPress 2.2 update


in Geek stuff, Internet matters

The triplets are being upgraded to WordPress 2.2. As the result, this site will be a bit like Arthur Dent at military academy, when bits of him kept passing out. Your patience during this process is appreciated. It seems like only a short while ago that I was doing the WordPress 2.1.3 update.

This process is rendered a fair bit more annoying because I have some custom tweaks in admin-functions.php. Critically, this handles aspects of thumbnail creation. I never know if the generic version of the file has changed in a new version of WP, so I need to redo my modifications in the new version. Something similar is true of the error page that comes up when MySQL databases cannot be reached.

If you are seeing this page, a sibilant intake of breath has been successfully updated. Cool people report any bugs they encounter.

[Update: 11:40pm] The nsn section is upgraded. I am getting quicker at this.

[Update: 11:50pm] Papa Fly Films is now running on WordPress 2.2.

It must be quite a pain to have to do all this manually. There is a WordPress service where they host your site and handle all this for you, you know.

People who live in one place for more than a few months at a time take pride in improving their homes. Those of us who wander the earth can achieve something similar through the constant tweaking of our webspace.

I am already planning the post-Oxford design transitions.

“Security analyst David Kierznowski shocked bloggers yesterday with a survey showing that 49 out of the 50 WordPress blogs he checked seem to be running exploitable versions of the widely used software. He said, ‘The main concern here is the lack of security awareness amongst bloggers with a non-technical background, and even those with a technical background.’ Mr Kierznowski also uncovered recent vulnerabilities in WordPress plugins that ship by default with the software, adding: ‘WordPress users developing plugins must be aware of the security functions that WordPress supports, and ensure that these functions are used in their code.'”

Note to self: when I make the transition to the post-Oxford blog, perhaps I should migrate to a theme compatible with WordPress widgets.
