    What am I missing... What does RC stand for?

  5. RC = Release Candidate

    Gosh. That's a fast-track jump from beta 2 to RC1!

    Didn't even realize there was the "big" bump. There ought to be a little visual and/or auditory "Whoopee!" when it does that ;-)

    I followed the instructions to the letter, and the upgrade worked just fine for a while, but just today I started getting this error when trying to log into the dashboard:

    "Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand.
    Request header field is missing colon separator.

    { return Object.extend.apply(this; wordpressuser_f2b477e21f07a8df743348579280dbb9=dcharti; wordpresspass_f2b477e21f07a8df743348579280dbb9=a87de363b83855194dcbb5d732a28c08"

    I'm new to some of this database stuff so forgive me, but: I used phpMyAdmin to check my database and found some kind of warning on my options table, something along the lines of "2 clients are either logged in or not finished" or something like that. I ran a repair on the database and the error disappeared.

    My blog is still accessible: http://www.the1degree.com/blog/ but I still can't log in or get to the system. I can even post using an external client, like my Dashboard widget.. this is really confusing. I've already tried replacing all the files (besides my config and content folders). Any thoughts are much appreciated!

    Update: I cleared the cache in my browser (Safari) and tried logging in and got in just fine. I went to edit a post, and once i tried to save the changes I received that error again. I'm starting to wonder if maybe something went wrong with my user name in the database?

    NOOOO! Does that mean the new version abandoned the template structure again, less than a year after the last time? Shades of Bill Gates....

    "Does that mean the new version abandoned the template structure again, less than a year after the last time?"

    Again?

    No, templates (i.e. themes) in WordPress 2 are pretty much the same, and almost all 1.5.x themes will work with 2. But there have been improvements theme developers can take advantage of, which I imagine is what CarLBanks is looking forward to.

    Never mind, I answered the question for myself with a testblog install. (And by again, I meant the change at about v1.2 when all the old styles became obsolete.)

    So, now that I've upgraded that testblog and can't login to it anymore...how long before questions will be accepted on this version?

    Old styles obsolete? Really? I still use them on some of my sites, along with the old style-switcher "plugin". Works fine on the classic theme (which so far is still in 2.0RC1).

    You know, I don't think I've ever heard TS Elliot referred to this way...

    (Obligatory On-Topicness: The Devs would have thousands of very angry folks if this version suddenly broke all the themes. Very angry.)

    By "my site" I mean my 2.0RC1 site so the old style system and the new theme system still function just fine. And there is only one "l" in "Thomas Stearns" ;-)

    is it ok to install rc1 on a new production site? i need to set up a new wordpress installation today and would like to install 2.0. i know that beta versions are not recommended on production sites but there's no content to be lost since it's a new site. will i be able to upgrate from an rc1 version to the final one? or will it be impossible to upgrade?

    Nope, those of us helping with the release candidate will be unable to install the finished product. ;-)

    Oh, and the answer to your question is still, "Caveat emptor."

    very funny. to be specific, my question is, will the final version recognize rc1 as a wordpress version and do any appropiate upgrades to the databse if needed?

    I created a new site for this 2.0 RC1, installation was smooth and OK except that when browsing for default themes the images of the themes don't show up.

    Also I don't see where I can set folder for uploading of images and limiting the size of files for uploading.

    I am running a blog as a critique exchange forum between 2 schools. The users are continually having trouble logging in - for no apparent reason. I am using this for a masters project in Educational Technology. My Word Press version is 1.5.2.

    If you tell me to upgrade, I will have to reply that if I make any more changes to the project, the cooperating teacher may have cardiac arrest. (Both she and I are art teachers - although I'm a bit more savvy than she. Does that define the picture a bit more?)

    Thanks!

    "trouble logging in"
    What is the precise error ?
    What system changes have happened, including updates ?
    What plugins have been added ? Tried deactivating them ?
    Is it happening every time or just sometimes ?
    Is it only happening on some machines or all ?
