Wow. You represent WordPress? That is terrible marketing sir!
1. No, I represent myself.
2. WordPress is free, open source software. Use it or don't use it. It makes no real difference to us.
Something in the code is changed that causes this. Our server was not changed and worked perfectly fine with the most recent release before 2.7.
See, a lot of people get this fundamentally wrong. You're basically saying "X is the only thing that changed, so the problem must be in X!" The problem is that that is simply not true. The changes in X might have cause the problem in Y to get triggered now, where they were not being triggered before. This is likely because X has lots of new functionality and changes. But the problem is still in Y, X cannot fix it and retain the new functionality.
Get it? Just because it worked before WordPress 2.7 does not mean that the problem is in WordPress 2.7. WordPress now does a lot of new things that it didn't do before, and clearly, one of those new things doesn't work on your server. But the server is still where the problem is.
Suggesting that users "switch" is just very sad and quite surprising.
I'm always amazed at people thinking that we're under some obligation to help them above and beyond the call of duty or something, or that we're trying to push a product or anything else.
Let's be perfectly clear here:
-You did not pay for WordPress.
-You are not paying anybody here for support.
-The people here that help people are volunteers, who help people out of the kindness of their hearts.
-And if you're not willing to diagnose your problems and get helped by those people, and instead just want to complain endlessly about how upset you are, then your problem is completely unsolvable. And in that case yes, I very well will tell you to take it elsewhere and stop using the program that you did not pay one thin dime for. Why? Because we're here to help people, and if the only way I can help you is to say "Stop using WordPress, it's not for you", then that is exactly what I will do.
This should not be construed as insulting, and I'm not trying to be rude. I'm just stating the way it is. If you are going to refuse all the help that we can give you and reject the only possible ways that we can help you, then I'm left with no alternatives but to try help you in the only way left, which is to tell you to go to some other package that works for you.
