You probably can’t tell, but this site is now officially running on WordPress 2.0. Yay! Now that that’s done I’ve got some fun improvements I’m planning to make. I’m going to Ajaxify the layout a bit, so we can go straight from the little snippets on the front page to full articles without reloading a whole page (ditto for comments), and then I’m going to make some adjustments to the drop-down menus so they don’t take up some 80 KB on every page. Hopefully nobody’ll notice. That’s why I have to announce it.
And then I have plans to begin work on my very own first plugin (I’m so excited!). I’m going to see if there’s a way I can create exportable blogrolls that can be shared with other weblogs. That is, I want to be able to turn my wordpress link manager into my own version of blogrolling.com, without the silly fees for important features. We’ll see what happens, eh?
That is all from me…

Was it very hard to change over to version 2.0?
Good luck on the plugin-it sounds like a great idea!
It was a little difficult. I had one plugin that was NOT 2.0 friendly, so I had several bouts of restoring backups until I narrowed it down to which one it was. Now my permalinks are no longer organized by category, but it’s a small price to pay for some of the advantages. The WYSIWYG editor alone makes up for it. However, DO NOT try to make this upgrade without making back ups, both of the WP database and the original 1.x files.
If you’re just installing from scratch, there should be no problem at all.
Ack! Your comment box still likes to hide behind the menu!
My comment box is fine. Internet Explorer needs to get standards compliant. 🙂
It works fine in Firefox.
