So, I have finally updated my blog.Â No, I don’t mean writing a new post.Â I mean I actually upgraded the WordPress software running this thing.
I always hesitate to do this, because it can cause all sorts of strange errors or problems with incompatible pieces.Â But, since my brand new iPhone has a native application that will allow me to mobile blog even more efficiently, and there are numerous security updates, I finally went from version 2.3.3 to the full fledge version 2.6.Â No, it doesn’t sound like much.
What does this mean to you, dear reader?Â Well… nothing.Â Although, I have removed the anti-spam captcha words that were on the comment form.Â Ok, well, I didn’t choose to remove it, that plugin was incompatible with the latest version.Â Hopefully, I won’t be innundated with spam, but time will tell.
The only problem I have now is that the permalink structure (aka: the path that shows up in your browser address window) now sucks.Â Due to 2.6 and IIS not playing nice together, I’m unable to go back to the cooler way of linking (/2008/7/30/Blog-updated) and have to stick with the default (?=414).Â This is quite aggravating since I have numerous links from elsewhere on the web that point to the old structure.Â I’m going to have to do some more investigating.
Anyway, there ya go.Â Not all that exciting, but news none the less.
I figured out and implemented a fix for the ugly url deal.Â Much thanks to this guy.
