Updating Again: WordPress 2.3

Well, I’ve updated the site to WordPress 2.3. Let me know if anything’s broken.

The closest thing to a problem was just that I didn’t know I had to run the tag importer manually. I assumed it would be run during the upgrade. No biggie, I went to Manage/Import, ran the importer for Bunny’s Technorati Tags, and waited a few seconds. (I already knew I’d have to adjust the theme.)

I guess fewer things can go wrong if it waits for you to tell it which tag format to import, the one time you actually need it to, instead of having the updater try to guess between 5+ structures (and no structure!) every single time you update for the foreseeable future.

Anyway, I’ll probably be trying out some new themes over the next few days, so don’t be surprised if the site changes appearance wildly. It seems about time for a change.

Theme Testing:

  • Blue Box, with a custom logo & splash image (one of our photos from Waikoloa) & some minor tweaks. (Sep. 24)
  • Still tweaking Blue Box. Trying to condense the extraneous splash image with the title bar. (Sep. 25)
  • I think I’m going to stick with this theme for now. I’ve added some workarounds for IE6 to (mostly) handle the changes I made. (Sep. 26)

To do: small-screen compat, put recent links back in the sidebar, fix the duplicate IDs in the Links widget. Maybe clean up the 60-item list of monthly archives. (Sep. 27)

  • Cleaned up the giant archive list via Flexo Archive Widget. Unlike others I’ve tried, this one won’t hide all the links if JavaScript is disabled. (Sep. 29)
