WordPress 3.3.2 Released — Upgrade Now

April 23rd, 2012 No comments

WordPress 3.3.2 is a security release and everyone should upgrade. Looks like the SWF uploader is being replaced…good, since it didn’t work that well anyway. No added features, but for security sake you do need to upgrade. Remember…don’t just push the upgrade button…do it right to avoid Murphy’s Law.

WordPress 3.3.1 is now available. This maintenance release fixes 15 issues with WordPress 3.3, as well as a fix for a cross-site scripting vulnerability that affected version 3.3. Upgrade now, but if you are not extremely tech-savvy, then view this first!

WordPress 3.3 Released

December 13th, 2011 No comments

Experienced users will appreciate the new drag-and-drop uploader, hover menus for the navigation, the new toolbar, improved co-editing support, and the new Tumblr importer. We’ve also been thinking a ton about what the WordPress experience is like for people completely new to the software. Version 3.3 has significant improvements there with pointer tips for new features included in each update, a friendly welcome message for first-time users, and revamped help tabs throughout the interface. Finally we’ve improved the dashboard experience on the iPad and other tablets with better touch support.

WordPress 3.1 Released

February 24th, 2011 No comments

WordPress 3.1 was just released and as usual the features just keep getting better. I upgraded this morning and it took all of about 15 seconds. Below are the major updates that would be of interest to normal users, but I think the most significant update is the admin bar on the homepage of the blog. There have been a couple of plugins that would accomplish this out for a while, but they just didn’t see to quite work like they should…this one is simple, gives you access to just the most frequently used tools, and seems to work as advertised. Well done once again WordPress…you’re still setting the standard for others to follow…and most are way behind.

WordPress 3.0.4 Update Released–Upgrade Now!

December 30th, 2010 No comments

WordPress just released a critical security update–version 3.0.4. If you are running an older WordPress version this upgrade is a must. You can upgrade automatically in the admin area of your site or search this blog for a video demonstrating how to upgrade manually. Don’t disregard this upgrade…it’s important.

WordPress 3.0.2 Released — Important Security Update

December 1st, 2010 No comments

WordPress 3.0.2 was just released with an important security update. Everyone should upgrade, but it’s particularly important if you have other authors on your blog. See details at the link below. Notice this was fixed on the same day it was reported and the new release was sent out to all users with an automatic notification in the admin area of every WP blog in use.  That’s effective and responsible open source security practice in action. Are you paying attention Moodle devs?

WordPress 3.0 Released — Nice Features

June 18th, 2010 No comments

WordPress 3.0 was just released and it’s a very nice version. I think the best feature in this release is the merging of WordPress and WordPress Mu (multi-user). I just upgraded this site to 3.0 and, as usual, the upgrade was smooth, quick, and problem-free.

I’ve been hosting a multi-user site for the past few years that currently has around 500 blogs, so I’ll be moving that site to WP 3.0 in the next few weeks. Of course, I’ll be doing some testing first, but as I do the transfer, I’ll create a video to document the process and publish it here.

WordPress Hacked — more than once — at Network Solutions

May 2nd, 2010 2 comments

Update: See comment by Network Solutions in comments area.

It seems Network Solutions and WordPress may not be playing well together and, as usual with tech geeks, they’re both pointing the finger at each other. I don’t have the time or interest to follow all the links on the net to figure this one out, but if you are hosting WP (or any other php app for that matter) on a network solutions, then you may want to do a little research on this one…here are a few links to get you started.

WordPress 2.9.2 Released — Bug Fix

February 15th, 2010 No comments

WordPress 2.9.2 was just released and addresses a bug where logged in users can see trashed posts belonging to other authors. So, if you have sensitive files in the trash and multiple user accounts on your site, you should probably upgrade soon.

WordPress 2.9.1 Released — Fixes Scheduled Post Problem

January 5th, 2010 9 comments

WordPress version 2.9.1 was just released and should fix the annoying scheduled post problem. The problem was scheduled posts weren’t being published on some 2.9 installs — including a couple of my own installs :-(. Instead, when you looked at the list of posts you would just see errors reading “missed schedule” or something similar. There is a way of fixing the problem by editing a core file, but no need now…just upgrade to 2.9.1 and all should be well. Remember…backup, backup, backup before pressing the upgrade button–chances are you will have no problems, but if you do, will be glad you backed up.

WordPress 3.0 New Features

December 29th, 2009 4 comments

WordPress 3.0, due to be out around mid-2010, will be getting a new default theme. So, if you love Kubrick, I’m sure you will still be able to use it and customize it, but it won’t be the default with the next release–at least not in its current form. If you would like to provide input on what the default theme should be, look like, features it should have, etc., then be sure to stop over at WP.org and post your 2 cents.

http://wordpress.org/support/topic/342819

Since I don’t participate in those forums any longer, I’ll just provide my thinking here.

Auto Embeds in WordPress 2.9

December 23rd, 2009 2 comments

Note: The following is made available under GPL from http://codex.wordpress.org/GPL. It may be edited a little from its original form, but probably not a lot. There is no guarantee this information is accurate…use at your own risk.
—————————————————–

In WordPress 2.9, it’s super easy to embed videos, images, and other content into your WordPress site. Just type/past the url into your post/page and WordPress does the rest. Make sure that the URL is on its own line and not hyperlinked (clickable when viewing the post).

WordPress 2.9 Upgrade and Having Problems?

December 21st, 2009 No comments

If you have upgraded to WordPress 2.9 and are running into problems, it’s usually due to incompatible plugins or themes. If you’ve upgraded and can’t login now, you can search this site for video tutorials on how to disable the plugins. If that doesn’t work, then you can try to ftp to your site and rename the current theme you are using–this will result in WP using the default theme. If that doesn’t work, then you can contact me and I’ll look at it for you for a small fee…if I can fix your site, you pay the fee–no more than $50–if I can’t fix your site, then you pay nothing. If interested, use the contact link in the nav bar.

WordPress 2.9 Released Stable

WordPress 2.9 has just been released as stable. I upgraded this site and all seems to be well. See the following post for some of the cool new features.

WordPress 2.9 — A Video Demonstration of New Features

December 7th, 2009 7 comments

In the following video I demonstrate three of, what I consider to be, the most useful new features coming out in WordPress 2.9 — Image Editing, Trash Bin, and Post Thumbnails. As of today, 2.9 is still in beta (beta-2), so the latest stable release is still 2.8.6, but I would expect (just a guess) 2.9 will be released as stable by the first of the year. When it’s released, I think the built-in Image Editor alone will be a very good incentive for a lot of users to upgrade.

WordPress 2.9 New Features

November 3rd, 2009 No comments

WordPress 2.9 should be released near the end of the month and will have a few neat, new features. Below are four new features that may be of most interest to the daily user. Note, there are several others that would be of interest to developers which are not listed here.

  1. Post Thumbnails: This allows you to automatically add an image to your posts. It’s the same type functionality you see in many custom themes where you can add images using “custom fields”, but this will make it a lot easier for most users.
