WordPress came out with a great new update a few weeks ago, and I’d been planning to get everything ready to do the upgrade this weekend.
Until I logged in yesterday and instead of my dashboard an upgrade screen popped up, similar to what I get when I first create the blog and database.
Well, that wasn’t what I was expecting or planning, and so I clicked to finish and held my breath, hoping that since I had no idea how it had started upgrading or what had or hadn’t been done, that there wouldn’t be too many bugs.
I was mostly concerned about my customizations and the time it’d take to re-do it all, but a quick refresh showed nothing amiss externally and I breathed a sigh of relief.
There are still bugs. Not big bugs, but little ones that are just annoying enough to make writing posts like, say, the March Checkpoint for our Reading Challenge, kind of difficult since I can’t use my would-have-been-even-nicer link button and am finding it sort of slow writing the html by hand each time. I also can’t add tags properly, upload images, or a couple other little things. So yes, we’ve got bugs.
And my limited understanding of the many bones of wordpress is failing me now. Other than re-installing the upgrade several times, and going over settings and scratching my head, I’m not sure what else to do but start searching the web for some tech support.
Until then, and hopefully it won’t be long, all progress on the March Checkpoint has come to a standstill for a time.
And this update is written while I am still shaking my head wondering whatever set the upgrade off and thinking that if Mr. Murphy was real as real, he must be having some sort of a hay day with my code right now.
And if you have the mental image that that idea just gave me, then you would know why I’m laughing now.
So…until bugs are banished, I’ll be buried over here trying to exterminate them.
