    Just updated to v3.1 of WordPress and it's working flawlessly at http://www.cualum.org and the multisite installation is working just as well at http://www.cualum.org/chapters/

    Ladies and Gentlemen, you are to be commended for an outstanding tool.

    Thank you all from the bottom of my heart. Without your work gathering the mighty University of Colorado Herd would be MUCH harder.

    Agree 100%. Upgraded a few standalone sites and multisite installation. Everything went off without a hitch for me.

    I've noticed the periodic upgrades have just been WORKING - no fuss, no muss, just lots and lots of WordPress goodness. Stumbled over a minor plugin issue today but it's due to old cforms (v11.5) use of JQuery and author indicates in v11.7.3 it's fixed. Found the issue because my custom JQuery-based content slideshow broke in IE - discovered conflict with LightBox2, tried LightBox Plus - lightbox function still not working - switched off Cforms 11.5 and LightBox Plus issue cleared. I suspect 99% of the 'WordPress' issues reported are actually plugins not behaving right. You just have to be methodical and meticulous about cross-checking stuff. The modular nature of WordPress makes debugging incredibly quick and easy. I know it's a pipe dream, but some kind of 'plugin conflict catcher' would be GRAND... WordPress itself RARELY gives me grief.

    Yeah, it's complicated :) And really hard since sometimes the conflicts are between two plugins, not between plugin/wordpress :/ Maybe NASA will give us a CRAY to run those checks on...

    sometimes the conflicts are between two plugins

    Or between plugin and theme. Or new version of WordPress and theme...

  7. I took care of about 40 client upgrades today and only encountered a few minor glitches. These were mostly due to old themes not having the latest functions and I was able to fix them in less than 2 minutes.

    3.1 is most excellent.
