It’s A New Dawn, It’s A New Day, It’s A New Life…

Feeling Good by Muse

Why the change you say? Well, maybe you’ve noticed something on my site just now?…WordPress 1.5 is now working quite well.

It’s a little buggy I think and not for the novice to transfer over from 1.2.x -> 1.5. Most especially if you’re using a different template, like I am. What bugs you say? Well, the 2 most obvious ones being:

I didn’t really come across any other bugs and so far I like the new version, but I don’t really notice anything hugely different. It has better spam protection definitely, I’ve turned off trackback/pingback moderation and WP-HashCash for now, we’ll see how it goes.

How did I fix those 2 bugs up there? Well, for the first one I just replaced 2 comment files in my themes (what used to be templates) directory with the ones from default, that fixed it. Apparently the 1.2 -> 1.5 conversion guide has some mistakes or the changes are too drastic from 1.2 itself. The second bug automatically fixed itself when I deactivated all old plugins, removed them (cleaned the directory), then uploaded them again (some new versions too). Maybe I did something else while doing that which fixed it or maybe the removal process itself fixed something, but either way, it’s perfect now.

Again, if you see any problems, post a comment or email me at tb AT

    I subscribed to your blog in the News & Blogs of my Thunderbird here at work. All your old posts show up double, with different senders – one from Binary Tuberculosis and one from TB. It’s not a big deal, and it’s probably nothing you can fix, but I thought I’d let you know anyway.

    Man, the upgrade sounds hairy. I’ll give it a shot tonight and give you a ring if I get stuck. :) Thanks, TB.

    Oh yeah, the text on your Submit Comment button is truncated. It shows up as Submit Co.

    Don’t know about Thunderbird, but the RSS feed works fine inside Firefox with my site. Strange. Try subscribing to your blog, same double posts?

    Yes, the upgrade is hairy, and you probably will call me, it’s too bad I’ve got class tonight, HA! Good luck.

    That Submit Comment button was a PAIN to fix. Turns out the problem was in the stylesheet I’m using, bah! Not a WordPress problem. Well it should be fixed now. Can’t wait for WordPress 1.5.1 which is being worked on right now, hopefully they’ll fix the minor bugs they have. I knew I should’ve waited, oh well.
