I’m upgrading to WordPress 1.2, please excuse the mess…


I have to say this. WordPress is like that awesome friend you have that is always amazing and surprises you with their constant coolness. Last night I expected my layout to break and hours of messing around to follow, so when I refreshed and saw that the index.php wasn’t broken, I was pretty damn happy.

WordPress is sexy.

  1. oooh, that can be messy. Maybe you could have held off for WordPress 1.3? That’s a really huge change in the way of thinking…

    I was lucky when I was switching to 1.2, a while back, that I had a local (non-live) server to test it out on first. It is worth the upgrade, in the end, simply because I &heart; plugins =)

    Either way, best of luck.


  2. Karen, it really wasn’t messy at all, it took 5 minutes and didn’t break my old index.php. Even the old Amazon media hack is good for now, until I install a new one. I should have updated the blog last night, but I started to feel quite sick (something I ate), so I went to bed. I didn’t want to hold off upgrading till 1.3, spam was becoming a problem.


  3. *sigh* first off, it’s K A R A N. It’s a male, Indian, name, and I *hate* people saying ‘Karen’… never mind, I’ll forgive you this once =p

    You’re pretty lucky, then. I had some issues, but did eventually get it working. I guess the more popular your site gets, the more you need spam control.

    One thing I can see as an issue right now is the ‘ and ” marks in your RSS – they’re coming up as ‘ and “. This was some issue I had as well, but I can’t for the life of me remember how I fixed it.

    Anyway, hope you feel better soon, and greets from the east coast ^_^


  4. Sorry Karan, I didn’t have my glasses on when I read your comment. 😕 Also, thanks for the heads up on the RSS feed thing. I’ll check out the support forum later for answers.


  5. Kitta, love the site, first time I’ve left a comment, but I have fan for well over a year now checking out your page at least once a week. Anyway, just want to know if you will still have the mobile version of your site available as I love to synchronize it with my PocketPC and read it during my boring lectures at uni, lol. Since I’ve lost my posting virginity I guess I will be posting like mad. Catch ya!


  6. This probably makes me some weird Internet stalker…


    With that most recent webcam image, isn’t you calling WordPress sexy a bit of “the pot calling the kettle black”?



  7. Wow, glad to see you have upgraded to Mingus I love the whole way wordpress works, it is (as you say) oh so sexy! 1.2 opesn up a whole new world of great plugins for you, I hope to see you take advantage of them.

    You just can’t go wrong with open source PHP, can you?


  8. Does this mean you’ll be trying out the cruft-free permalinks next? It doesn’t really mess up backwards compatbility, plus it makes things so much prettier (or sexier if you please).


  9. Hmm. I upgraded from 1.0 to 1.2, and there were some small issues. Opgraded from 1.2 to 1.3a and worked as a charm. WP es verdadéramente sexy!
