Updating from 2.0.2 (5 posts)

    I have a travel blog that is running 2.0.2. I haven't updated in the past 1.5 years because I've been on the road and afraid that an update might break my blog or plugins. Without a good, fast internet connection I was worried to do anything that would require me sitting in dark internet cafes paying my the minute for slow access.

    Now that I'm home, is there anything I need to take into consideration before updating to the newest WP install? Will all of my plugins need to be updated as well?

    A list of my plugins can be found here.

    Instead of us checking for your plugins, it would be better if you do it:

    Also, keep in mind there are theme compatibility issues, too with the latest WP 2.3!

    Thanks for the link, a few of my plugins aren't on there so I'll have to look into those: category order, category images, filosofo enroll comments, fancy archives, run php and w-p. Maybe some of these aren't needed with improvements to the new version of WordPress.

    I hacked together my theme myself so I hope it works!

    Thanks

    Most of the category related things (plugins, custom code) will NOT work in WP 2.3, since the DB structure has been radically changed.

    If you didn't do any actual SQL Queries yourself in your theme, then it will probably work. Maybe. ;)
