The Blog

Just a quick housekeeping update…

I’ve just upgraded the WordPress install to 2.0.10 – from 2.0.4 (who knew if you didn’t pay attention for a couple of weeks they’d release 6 new upgrades?) – but I don’t think there should be too much difference for readers. If anyone has a problem, let us know on the usual email. I think I’ve updated the permissions for all the right directories that need it but I may have missed something – hey, it’s happened before.

The other thing is that I’ve adjusted a setting in the admin section so we shouldn’t be seeing any more pingbacks in the comments sections. Mostly they were spam anyways – with a few in just the last few days so maybe we’d popped up on the radar for those pingback comment spamming arseholes – so there should be very little loss there.

That is all.



  1. I have just upgraded my two Wordpress sites. I keep on top of them. Whenever Cpanel has a new version I install it. No problems my end.

  2. Rob Boxcutter says:

    Why not upgrade to 2.1.3? I just upgraded a blog from 2.0.x to 2.1.2 quite seamlessly via Fantastico. Just now I upgraded again to 2.1.3 and all’s still well.

  3. I’ve held back on the upgrade from a 2.0.x to 2.1.x because I figured there’d be more involved in upgrading the database, themes, plugins, etc…

    If it’s as simple as the one I just did, I might go up in the next week or two.

    Josh has been playing with CSS layouts and the like and I was also a little concerned it’d break that too.

    The Fantastico upgrade path got broken somewhere along the way and it doesn’t recognise which version is currently installed now. Does it retain all the plugins/themes? There’s another couple of blogs on the server that are still linked in properly and if it migrates everything then that’d definitely be the way to go with them.


  4. Rob Boxcutter says:

    My themes and plugins were retained (and I use widgetised themes), but it’s always good to check for the most recent versions of all plugins; some older versions may not be tested against the latest Wordpress release.

    I think I upgraded one or two plugins to ensure compatibility.

    When you upgrade, Wordpress provides a 6-step instruction guide on how to restore in case of problems.

  5. Rob Boxcutter says:

    Wow. Is it just me or is everyone seeing this blog with the standard “Kubrick” Wordpress Default theme (as of 4.50pm Easter Monday)??

  6. Rob Boxcutter says:

    Ignore that last.

    I’d clicked on the “WordPress Classic” theme choice at the bottom of the sidebar and couldn’t get Benevolence back until I cleared my Boxcutter cookie.

  7. I can’t add articles any more. And I had a ripper.

  8. eh, what happened to the original theme ?

  9. Rob Boxcutter says:

    Did the theme change on you, fouthof5?

    If so, try getting rid of your cookies for this site and restart your browser. It should return to normal.

  10. I’ve turned off the theme switcher plugin which Josh was using for some dev work.

    This should stop people accidentally seeing the site in Kubrick.
