Fantastico and WP 2.0 (6 posts)

    Hi,

    I wanted to upgrade my blog to 2.0; however, I originally installed 1.5.2 using Fantastico (at the request of my host, who claimed it was easier and allowed for updating).

    If I want to move to 2.0, should I wait for Fantastico to do it for me ? Or, can I just follow the steps outlined here ? Or will that mess up my relationship with Fantastico in some way ?

    Thanks,

    Damon

    You can do it yourself, and "trick" Fantastico.

    In your installation root should be a file named fantversion.php. Open it in a text editor after you've uploaded and installed 2.0, and change the line

    $version = '1.5.1.3' ;

    to

    $version = '2.0' ;

    then upload the changed file. This prevents Fantastico from "notifying" you that your version is wrong....

    I'll send you the file. Just upload it into root and see if it helps....

    I see the file; I will give that a try as soon as I install it on my local machine and make sure that my theme is compatible.

    Thanks!
