WordPress 2.5 is out since saturday. Among all the new features are: search now covering posts and pages, built in Gravatar support, media library for images, music and videos with multi-file uploading, built-in galleries, full-screen writing and more. The new dashboard interface was created in collaboration with Happy Cog Studios.
It has not been long ago when I upgraded this WordPress installation. There is now the update to WordPress 2.3 avaiable. For me the most interesting new things are canonical URLs, update notification of new releases of WordPress or of plugins that are used and native tagging support.
Since some months I have been using Ultimate Tag Warrior but have not very happy with it and in my opinion it was not working properly all the time. So I was looking forward for the native tagging support in WordPress 2.3.
As the last time the upgrade was easy and fast. Moreover there is an option import Ultimate Tag Warrior tags into the new native tagging structure.
Since I installed WordPress last year and this site became a blog I never upgraded. I always wanted to do it later.
Today finally I managed to upgade. And it has been as simple and as fast as has been setting up this WordPress blog. So now there is WordPress Version 2.2.3 running here.
So first I had to replace
<?php comment_author_link(); ?> with
<a href="<?php comment_author_url() ?>"><?php comment_author() ?></a> in the WordPress template. Finally I added some microformats code:
<span class="author vcard"><a class="fn url" href="<?php comment_author_url() ?>"><?php comment_author() ?></a></span>.
Welcome to WordPress. This is your first post. Edit or delete it, then start blogging!
This is the first default blog entry when you install WordPress.
But first I wanted to have a new design, for that I had quite some ideas but not really the time to implement. And looking back now, there were maybe too many ideas.
So finally today I decided to delete all files and install WordPress and use it form now on. Moreover the sites name now is
portenkirchner.net and the old title
porti’s island in the name became the subtitle.
