10 Things You Should Know About WordPress 2.1

Aaron Brazell has written a nice piece on the due to be released any minute now WordPress 2.1: 10 Things You should Know About WordPress 2.1.

Worth a read if you use WordPress, are thinking of using WordPress, or just like sites[1] built with WordPress[2]. Some of the ten things are changes to how WordPress[3] works, and some are new features. The only one that will make a difference to how I work is the nifty auto-save feature. Anyone who’s typed a long post without clicking on “Save and Continue Editing” and has lost their connection, or accidentally closed their browser or lost their work through some other oopsie will appreciate this one.

I won’t be upgrading straight away, as I’m waiting for an update to the Ultimate Tag Warrior plugin, which is an essential part of Losing it[1]. Oh, and a minor update to the equally essential WPG2.

And even though WordPress 2.1 isn’t quite out yet, the developers are already looking towards the next release. Not only that, but they’re inviting everyone to ask for features they’d like to see. Join in the fun on the Ideas page.

    Try this:

    Modify ‘ultimate_save_tags()’ function on ‘ultimate-tag-warrior-actions.php’ about line 502:

    if (isset($_POST['comment_post_ID']))
                   return $postID;
    if (isset($_POST['not_spam'])) 
                 return $postID; // akismet fix
    if (isset($_POST["comment"])) 
                return $postID; // moderation.php fix

    Ooooh! Personal service! I like that :wave:

    Just tested that on my WP2.1 site, and it works for moderated comments. I don’t use Akismet, so I can’t confirm that bit.
