Yeah, figured it was finally time to update to the latest wordpress. After enjoying all the enhancements on the wordpress blogs we use at work, I thought they might encourage me to work on my blog some more.
The update wasn’t quite as scary as I thought it would be. Its basically the same as the famous 5 minute install, except you copy over the existing install instead of a clean directory and run the updater script instead of the installer.
It did hose my sidebar, but I knew that was coming. I had hacked that code quite a bit to put in all my offsite widgets (delicious, digg, flickr, my runlog, etc.) I’m gonna recode those things into my own custom widgets, so I don’t shoot myself in the foot again.
I’d also like to delve into a look and feel update, but I don’t know if I’m gonna have the time and energy to get anywhere in the near future. Probably go evolutionary instead of revolutionary, I guess. Stay tuned.
