    Hi there,

    I just found a small bug. Everything is working fine for me generally, but I added a caption to a widget, then changed my mind and tried to remove the caption, but I couldn't clear it out - it comes back when you save.

    I had to kill the widget instance and create another, then add an image without a caption.

    Thanks

    I wanted to build a site that was relatively maintenance free once it was up and running. But all this talk about updates to plug-ins has me worried. While I appreciate all the work people do to build plug ins, it seems silly if every upgrade requires fixing the plugins. Isnt there a better choice than Wp for site building. Had to change from GoDaddy's website tonight (which I love) to wordpress because it does not transfer to dedicated server and I am no website builder. I am not yet committed totaly to WP, so the time for change is now. I run a charity and am trying to duplicate http://www.spiderwebmall.com as easy as possible. I have enough html work to do all over again than to have to wrestle with complicated site builders.

    Hi zzzlumber,

    Updates to WP are a good thing - many times they fix security holes, small bugs, or make little improvements to the UI. I'd be more worried about using a framework that isn't kept up-to-date.

    I've used (and built with) many Content Management Systems, and in my mind, no other CMS comes close. WP is incredibly flexible to build with, and there's a huge community of people in the support forums and building themes/plugins.

    Not all upgrades require fixing. The latest WP upgrade to 3.5 made significant changes to the handling of the media gallery, and this plugin makes significant use of that media gallery, hence the comments and upgrade. In my experience, most plugins I use regularly worked with 3.5 without any problems.

    Stick with it - you can always wait to upgrade in the future - you don't have to upgrade your site straightaway - wait until you're sure all of the plugins you use are compatible.

    @zzzlumber - this is probably not the place to bring up that debate. But I feel your pain. Honestly, I think WP is the best solution out there for projects where you want to get your hands in there and make something awesome. But I don't think self hosted wordpress installs is the best if you simply want to get something online and forget about it. If that's your goal then i would suggest any number of the privately hosted services (including wordpress.com).

    Honestly, you probably would be better off with the text widget for HTML. But I don't know. Try it and see. It's free.
