Ow! Ow! Ow!
That did not go well.
Several problems settled in at once, resulting in ricketyclick being more rickety than clickety. All fixed now.
I am now going to take my blog in my hands and attempt to update again, this time from 2.9.1 to 3.0. I’ll be using the built in WordPress update instead of Fantastico!
Please stand by again….
OK, backed up and deactivated plugins…
OK, update to 3.0 complete.
I’ll be turning the plugins back on now….
…And the plugins aren’t just blowing up in my face.
I will now be playing with the Visual editor, which has not worked well in past versions.
For instance, let’s see how it deals with hard-coded html….
And let’s try a list:
- Item one
- Item two
- Item three
Right off, it disturbed the formatting on my horizontal rule. Blegh.
Switching to HTML mode…
Typing in a manual list…
- Item a
- Item b
- Item c
Switching to Visual then HTML again….
HM, that actually didn’t go too badly. In some previous versions, swapping back and forth turned HTML tags into special characters. Didn’t happen this time.
Unless I need a HR, I guess I’ll be sticking with the Visual editor for awhile.
Now for media insertions….
Urk…can’t upload to my content directory…let me check permissions….
OK, that’s fixed. Let’s try a big one…Never mind. I was hoping there’d be an option for inserting the picture sized to fit the column. Nope. Now let’s try flash…
Ah…not quite what I had in mind…but OK. I can work with that.
OK, I’m calling this successful.
Moving on with my life.
