    Since I can't make sense of the list of files revised, could you tell us whether this revision fixes the problem that developed with 2.3.1 that broke the email notification of comments for lots of people?

    Here's a link to the Codex article with tickets closed and code changes for 2.3.2:

    I upgraded one site, but I won't be upgrading the rest until somebody tells me why, after upgrading, I can't delete categories! I go to "Manage," "Categories" and hit delete. When I refresh the page, the categories I previously deleted are back again!

    The provision for custom db error is a good one.

    I'd like to request for a similar custom message in case of a PHP coding error. If a novice like me makes an error while tinkering with the PHP code of a template file, the viewer of the blog at that point of time sees a long string of "Fatal error at /home/...blah...blah...on line no..."

    In addition to being very annoying to a visitor, it doesn't make any sense to him(her).

    Can we have an arrangement where the meaningful PHP error message is sent to the admin, but the viewer is shown a polite custom error message.

    Thanks in advance.

    I picked up the message that I should update my installations, and saw the suggestion on the page http://wordpress.org/download/ suggesting using a hosting partner so that the upgrade is a one-click operation.

    At WordPress's suggestion I do exactly that, and my host is Bluehost. Their service has been pretty good, except in the area of WordPress upgrades.

    My experience has been that through my host's Fantastico installer new versions of WordPress only become available after many days or sometimes weeks.

    The latest update isn't available through Fantastico at the time of writing, which is worrying when we're being warned to upgrade quickly!

    Could someone please speak to Fantastico about this or even with my host, if that's where the problem lies?

    Thanks,

    Gavin

    gmatkin,

    You may use a FTP client.

    But kichu, that only addresses part of gmatkin's question.

    gmatkin can do it himself manually using an FTP client, but then what's the point in WordPress recommending non-technical folk use a hosting partner "so that upgrading is a one-click operation"?

    kichu, I like your suggestion re error pages due to buggy PHP code. Do you want to copy that to the Requests and Feedback forum? (It makes sense here too, but it should also be there, I think.)

    Why upgrade to 2.3.2?

    The "security threats" seem irrelevant to me. What's wrong with people being able to see the _structure_ of my database? Some people might have reason to be concerned about people seeing their drafts, but I'm not. Do I need to upgrade?

    (This will be my first upgrade since I made several edits to files that I think will get replaced, so I will need to spend more time than I want to planning and tinkering.)

    P.S. Should there be a "comment" link on the 2.3.2 announcement page?

    I will upgrade because I see that the list of changes includes:

    * Performance improvements for post sanitization when raw content is required (#5325).
    * Suppression of database errors unless WP_DEBUG is true (#5473).
    * Changes to wp-mail.php to escape the error messages when displaying them to avoid a possible XSS attack (#5484).
    * Changes to the information exposed the wp.getAuthors xmlrpc method to reduce the information exposed and add a capabilites check (#5534).

    If those mean what I think they mean, it's good for me to upgrade.

    I asked my question "Why upgrade ...?" because I expect lots of people will think the announcement is not relevant to them.

    I upgraded and when I log in I still get a message telling me to upgrade...

    The upgrade announcement says this:

    As a little bonus, 2.3.2 allows you to define a custom DB error page. Place your custom template at wp-content/db-error.php. If WP has a problem connecting to your database, this page will displayed rather than the default error message.

    I see no option in the Admnin CP after upgrading to define or create such a page.

    I have not given up hope. It may still be there, but hosting service is looking onto the prob, which may be on their end.

    Bang right imagiscapeca - no doubt I could do it manually using ftp, but chose to follow WordPress's recommended route...

    I've edited numerous files/images in my wordpress 2.3.1 to custom brand it to my site.

    It says the following files were modified, none of these have any custom branded content for my site.

    Could I just keep my original 2.3.1 installed and copy over the below files?

    wp-admin\admin.php
    wp-admin\includes\file.php
    wp-admin\install.php
    wp-admin\setup-config.php
    wp-app.php
    wp-content\plugins\akismet\akismet.php
    wp-includes\formatting.php
    wp-includes\functions.php
    wp-includes\pluggable.php
    wp-includes\post.php
    wp-includes\query.php
    wp-includes\taxonomy.php
    wp-includes\version.php
    wp-includes\wp-db.php
    wp-mail.php
    wp-settings.php
    xmlrpc.php

    thanks!

    Just ran a new installation of 2.3.2 and noticed a bug with that "categories" section.

    As someone stated above, there seems to be a problem with this.

    The problem I found, is different to the one stated above, so this brings the count to # 2 problems with the categories section. The problem I found was that for example if have the following as main cats:

    Chevy
    Ford
    Cars

    I cannot add the category "Cars" under any of the other like Ford or Chevy, because the software is only allowing "one" instance of each name. So cars, chevy, ford, etc etc... can only be listed in the categories section once. Now, wordpress overwrites what I type.

    Now, this might not be a problem to many, but to me it is and to many others I am sure.

    Why you might ask?

    1st, it was an old option that was available and NOW is not.

    2nd,
    Well, look

    Chevy (Main Cat)
    >Concepts (Sub Cat)
    >Press Releases (Sub Cat)

    Ford (Main Cat)
    >Concepts (Sub Cat)
    >Press Releases (Sub Cat)

    In examples like the one above, I wont be able to have such a category structure/layout because I need to repeat several titles and at this time wordpress is not allowing to add them.

    Very interested to know a solution to this problem.

    Thanks!

    Just a short note to say that the upgrade went fine. I don't even have to deactivate plugins or use upgrade.php. There are some large pictures in the folder /tinymce/themes/advanced and beside an 'unwanted' links.htm (I believe) (which I had 'to FTP' a few times on one site, with the other ones things went "smooth like shit from a duck's ass" as mr. Eddie says in "Lost Highway".
    (Just so people like me who immediately begin to scan the forums when they hear of a new version won't just see the problems.)

    The upgrade doesn't work, like many people we have the duplicate entry problem. i have found many posts about that problem but no solution.

    WordPress database error: [Duplicate entry '1' for key 1]
    INSERT INTO wp_terms (term_id, name, slug, term_group) VALUES ('1', 'Uncategorized', 'uncategorized-2', '1')

    WordPress database error: [Duplicate entry '1-category' for key 2]
    INSERT INTO wp_term_taxonomy (term_id, taxonomy, description, parent, count) VALUES ('1', 'category', '', '0', '0')

    etc. etc..

    What can we do ?

    Did you backup your database and then reload it? It shouldn't have to. You basically have to just copy over the WP files overwriting the old ones. The database backup is just to be safe.

    If and ONLY if you did do a backup, I'd drop the data from the database and reload it back in. That should get rid of the duplicate data and put it back to its original state.

    If you did not backup and reload it then I'm not sure what could have caused the problem.

    Do you mean a backup via phpadmin ? or is there a backup integrated in wordpress ?

    So far i only did full cpanel backups. and just overwrote my wordpress everytime there was an update, but since 2.3.0 we have that bug, so we had to revert to 2.2.x , hoping the next update fixed it, but no luck so far...

    use phpadmin and backup/export your database but always check drop table

    This way you never have duplicated entries when restoring/overwriting the database

    Tried that, no luck, the same problem remains.

    What else can we try ?

    @patrox--assuming you have a good backup before you started the upgrade:
    1. drop all the current tables--meaning drop every table in your database (that is related to WordPress)
    2. restore the backups--using phpMyAdmin import/restore the backup you made before beginning the backup process
    3. check/rebuild all those tables--use the phpMyAdmin Check/Rebuild ability to make sure your tables are clean (no corrupt data/indexes)
    4. do the upgrade.php again

    At least three people (including myself) having the following issue

    "No Upgrade Required
    Your WordPress database is already up-to-date!"

    These are referenced in the following two support threads:

    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/149610 and http://wordpress.org/support/topic/149529

    I personally have deleted old files instead of the overwrite method after trying the overwrite method.

    Today I upgrade to 2.3.2 and now, when I want to "write a post" there is a warning for a Trojan Horse. Coincedence?

    Greetings,

    I recently upgraded to 2.3.2 and in doing so everything seemed okay until i got an email from the site owner saying that he as getting an 404 error for the Articles. When I checked this out I found that for some reason the address had been changed for all the articles. i.e. http://webtaxcpa.com/wpcategory/articles/ instead of http://webtaxcpa.com/wp/category/articles/.
    It seems the forward slash between wp and category has been deleted for some reason. This has been applied to all the articles or posts so everyone of them comes up with a 404 error. Is there a fix for this?
    Also another strange thing is that when I check the server there is no directory named category. Is this some kind of hidden directory. Is weird because when I put in the correct address, with the / between wp and category, the articles appear. Can someone explain this? Matt if your reading this please look into same.
