So – at last it’s here – the much anticipated new upgrade for WordPress with some very exciting features and evolutions – we’re itching to get stuck in.
But… we’re going to wait just a few days. I’m not sure how, but experience suggests that allowing those lovely geek types, who create all the plugins we enjoy and which make our WordPress blogs and websites fly, a few days to be sure their creations will work with 3.0 is worth a few days.
This may seem a little over-cautious, and it’s quite likely that the plugin developers have worked out any issues already, in readiness, but just in case we’ll hold-fire just a little and gently test the waters with those quieter, less demanding blogs before letting 3.0 loose on the busier, meatier blogsites with lots more functionality.
And please, please – when you come to upgrade your WordPress, follow the sensible process:
- Take backups
- Deactivate your plugins
- Then upgrade
- Activate your plugins one by one (if you can bear to)
- Then play…
We’ll have a look at how useful this new version can be, now that it’s here and most of you will be comfortable working with the firm release.
