Why I Have Not Upgrade to WordPress 2.3?

WordPressHave you upgraded your blog to WordPress 2.3? I haven’t, even the WordPress 2.3.1 has been released 9 days ago. Why?

There are some reasons:

  • Plugins — I use many wordpress plugins, some are custom hacked. I need to check them for updates or search for similar plugins that support version 2.3.
  • Tags — As you know, WordPress 2.3 supports native tagging. Currently, I do not use any tagging plugin. All the blog tags you see on previous posts are manual HTML codes. I hope to have a script to import the manual tags to WordPress 2.3.
  • Blog editor — I need to check to make sure that my favorite blog editor fully support WordPress 2.3.
  • New theme — I have a new blog theme under development (since long long time ago). I wish to launch the new theme together with WordPress update.

Anyway, I should do the WordPress upgrade soon before the release of version 2.4 in December 2007 (check WP roadmap).

    That’s also the reason why i haven’t upgrade my WP. Maybe wait after new ver 2.4 to come out first….

    Since, I’ve just moved to WordPress (it was 2.3 that time), and I was and still making myself familiar with wp, I can’t tell the difference. and of course the plugins i used is not that much and can be supported in 2.3.1 (current)

    Take your time to figure it out and waiting for your upgrades and new theme.

    @dicky: wordpress is not hard to upgrade, simply upload & replace files then run upgrade script. However, the unexpected problems are headache. I can’t allow my blog down for hours for troubleshooting…

    @vangardx: thank you. simple tags is a tagging plugin for wordpress and WP2.3 has the importer for the plugin. It cannot convert my existing manual tags.

    @musica0911: if you would want to switch to wordpress, use the latest version. don’t waste your time on earlier version.

    @apple: glad to see you moved to wordpress 🙂

    i recommend you all to install wordpress locally and test if all the plugins can work with the new 2.3 release. better screw up locally then screw up live. 😀

    yes, i installed wordpress many times. the problem is not on the wordpress itself as I mention in the post.

    i have updated mine few days ago .. it was a breeze 😀 .. that was because it was from 2.3 to 2.3.1 and there is no change in the database structure.

    WP 2.3.1 is not really stable . The editor always hang when submitting links and pictures . I dont know why but now im planning to degrade my WP to early version.
