Well, unless you are using a blogging software or looking to start using one, this article may not be very useful to you, but it is still interesting to hear about a great piece of software when it comes along. Techforlunch uses WordPress, so everything you see is managed and/or generated by wordpress. WordPress 2.5 was released on March 29th and if you are waiting to upgrade, you shouldn’t…
I ran the upgrade procedure on techforlunch.com following the documentation and it was flawless. The steps are pretty straight-forward and basic:
- Backup your database and current site files
- Disable all your plugins
- Upload the new files to your site (making sure not to overwrite the plugins and themes folders.)
- Update the database schema (http://yoursite.com/wp-admin/upgrade.php)
- Enable all your plugins one by one
The improvements are not as visible on the user’s side so that is why practically no one will notice the version upgrade on the frontend. For the administrators though, it’s a different story. The interface is much cleaner, faster and less cluttered than before and adds many new features.
I strongly recommend this upgrade and can vouch for its ease of installation. The one click plugin upgrade feature is worth the upgrade by itself!
