Sorry for the delay Chip, I was resolving serious issues for the upgrading to WordPress 3.2.1.
WordPress.com hosted service doesn't allows plugins, so that is not the solution, Chip.
The problem I see with this wordpress.org platform, is that plugins, themes, and framework are not controlled by the community. Incompatibility and hacking causes all the problem here. Right?
So, third party cause the damage.
It´s difficult to find out what plugin cause certain problems, and Chip, do you think if I surely know what is the name of the plugin I will going to post a question here?
Right now, after export/import database. I had that RE-BUILT the entire site, deleted multisite and buddypress, and deleted wordpress.org totally broken plugins. It sounds you logical?
Anyway, I still have a last problem, I hope. I´ve made a search here, and I found 2 posts about the broken mailchimp archive plugin, which create a cronjob every second. That is the problem.
And Chip, what do you think I´ve found in those wordpress.org post? Nothing. They didn´t post the solution. And the plugin author is missing. The situation is that a problem like this doesn´t have to exist at all. So, this approach is wrong.
Multisites and Buddypress as well, introduces another factor in the incompatibility problem, making the database more fragil.
Do you think we are going in the rigth direction: thousands of possible problems "attacking" the platform, everyday.
I am talking about that WordPress.org have to RETHINK all the approach to avoid hacking and incompatibility problems. We need ideas, what are yours Chip?
What do you think if wordpress.org creates something like "release certification" for the WordPress release, to certify the plugins and themes? And please, don´t talk about that untrusted thing "broken yes or not" in the plugin page. I am talking about a developer team that test incompatibility and virus issues, in every plugin and theme uploaded here.
If this trusted certification can´t be afforded, the incomptibility problems will kill the entire platform, and other more robust platform will take the users base. It´s simple like that.
