Testing times ahead

There’s a major new release of WordPress coming soon. As version 2.1 involves lots of changes to the underlying code, I’ve been testing the current beta version on a copy of Losing it[1].

I was able to import all the posts and comments, and just needed to beat it up a little bit to get the tags working properly. And then came the fun bit of getting all the plugins working. As it happens, most of them worked without any trouble at all, but there are a few that are expecting things to be in different places, and they’ve been crashing and burning, or at least not working.

I’ll be doing more playing and tweaking, and I’ll be looking for updates to the broken plugins, or other ways of doing what they do.

More details later…

Oh, and this morning’s weight was a bit high. More exercise tomorrow. Definitely. :yes:
