WordPress 3.6 Released

August 3rd, 2013 2 comments

WordPress 3.6 released…upgraded this site today without a hitch.  Every time an upgrade comes out, like clockwork you can check the WP forums and see where people just pushed the upgrade button and something went wrong. Without a backup, you may be up the creek. See this video for the proper way to upgrade so you will be able to recover if something like this happens to you. http://wordpress.org/support/topic/upgrading-to-36-database-loop By the way, I love the help the “volunteer moderator” provided “@Lismich – please start your own thread.” What wonderful assistance 🙂

New features in 3.6

WordPress 3.5 Released — Some Nice Enhancements

December 16th, 2012 No comments

WordPress 3.5 was just released and it looks like they have made some nice enhancements. I’ve updated this blog and all went well–as usual. The retina-ready improvement is a nice touch showing that WP is keeping pace with pupular technologies. It has a new 2012 theme–probably blah, but I’m seeing a trend here–2010, 2011, 2012…humm, wonder what will be next :-). Also the new image management interface should be pretty nice.

See the video on this site about how to properly upgrade your WordPress blog–remember, don’t just press the “update now” button.

WordPress 3.4 Released — Yawn, but Upgrade Anyway :-)

June 13th, 2012 No comments

WordPress 3.4 was just released and as always you should upgrade, if for nothing else, just to ensure you have the security fixes. As for functionality improvements, there is nothing really exciting about this release. You can preview theme changes before publishing them and change the size of the header in the default theme now–although you are still stuck with the massive amount of wasted space above the header unless you make code changes like demonstrated here. You can also create nice looking Twitter embeds by pasting the tweet permalink on a line in the editor–been doing that for a while now with the Blackbird Pie plugin.

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.

How to Quickly Install Multiple WordPress Blogs Using a Single Database

March 4th, 2012 2 comments

In this video I show how to quickly install a WordPress blog and then replicate it multiple times resulting in multiple independent WordPress installs using a single database. If you need hundreds of WordPress installs, then the using the network feature (multiple blog feature) in WordPress is the way to go. However, if you only need a few then installing separate blogs may be a lit simpler and easier for you to manage.

How to Properly Upgrade Your WordPress Blog — Don’t Just Press “Upgrade Now”

December 18th, 2011 3 comments

In the video below I demonstrate how to take a full backup of your WordPress blog before upgrading so that you will have everything you need just in case the upgrade breaks your site and you need to get back to where you were. One of the biggest mistakes people make when upgrading their site is to just trust that everything will go well and fail to make a good backup. Don’t be a victim…you may make a hundred backups you never need, but one day you will need one.

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.

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.
