WordPress 2.2 Upgrade Success

Wordpress UpdateBloggerDesign just took the plunge and upgraded to Wordperss 2.2 (from 2.1.3). It was simple and easy, just as it should be. Going from 2.1.x to 2.2 isn’t as big of a deal as going from 2.0.x to 2.1 (or 2.2) is.

The biggest update I saw was the hook for WYSIWYG support in a future version of Safari. This will make a lot of Safari users happy. Of course, it’s in an up-coming version of the browser. My guess is that Safari in Mac OSX 10.5 (aka Leopard) will be a nice upgrade. Can’t wait!!

WordPress 2.2 also claims it’ll protect the user from activating a plugin or making edits that will break the blog. So far, I’ve activated a plugin that broke the plugins page so it didn’t protect me from that. I’m not sure what I’m being protected from yet.

One GREAT feature is that they brought back the ‘Preview’ post link when writing. And this time, it links out to the actual blog and not just down the page to a preview in an iFrame. I’m really happy to see this feature return as I missed it quite a bit.

If you come across any issues with the recent upgrade, let me know. The only issues I saw were related to he plugins I decided to update at the same time. Note to self, don’t upgrade plugins unless you have time to spend troubleshooting. I came to figure out that Headspace2 (version 3.1) and SEO Title Tag (version 2.0beta8) don’t play well together. They end up removing the spaces in your title tags!! But we’re all good now.
