Upgrade to WordPress 2.8

June 11th, 2009 by

wordpress_wThis morning I upgraded from 2.7 to WordPress 2.8. It was so easy — just a click on a link and done in less than a minute. Supposedly, there are new ways of dealing with tags. In particular, I noticed that tags now have a box for description, which can come in handy for search engine optimization (SEO). Categories already had the description box. Click on “Post Tags” in the Admin panel to see.

Theme editor has been a focus of the new version of WordPress. It is now easier to switch in and out of themes.

Someone on Twitter reported there may be some bugs with the new widget editor; it may not drag and drop properly.

Looking forward to playing with the new features soon.

  1. Good to know it’s a quick and easy update. I always have a niggling worry in the back of my mind something catastrophic will go wrong when updating. Silly, I know.

    Edward, I know that feeling. Just do a backup first.
