    Is there a document about what's new and known issues somewhere? I'm searching around but can't seem to find anything. the readme in the zip is for 2.0.

    thanks,
    will

    Not as far as I know.
    This will have some pointers, but not all:

    You'd have to check the bugs people have posted. I haven't come across too many issues beyond a couple of plugins no longer working and the db backup plugin not backing up files on my Windoze box - a 150Kb gz file containing a 107 byte sql file with just the header in it.

    Plug ins might not work right now. The development team has done their best try for backward compatibility, but sometimes things doesn't go well always.

    I've tested the plug in, and I could download the file (FYI, I'm using Apache 2 and MySQL 4.1.11 on Windows)

    Y'know, there's gonna be some squirrely-ness due to some hosts upgrading to the 5+ versions of php etc. too.... be nice if they could have waited on that, huh?

    Anyone wanna test SK2 with it? :)

    Ah.... sorry, not I. Never had any luck with it, I'll stick with other plugins, thanks.

    SK2 seems to work just fine for me.

    Attached images are linking to "page" rather than image even when I change the option to link to image. I even edited the link manually, but when I publish, it links to http://site.com/2005/11/post-title/image.jpg (which gives no picture, of course) rather than /wp-content/uploads... Have I missed something?

    Following along with poil11's post above, these plugins are working perfectly for me:

    A Different Monthly Archive
    Adhesive
    AutoLinks
    Bad Behavior
    CA-Stardate
    CJB QuickPost
    CollapseIt
    Countdown
    McMike's RandomQOTD
    PJW WordPress Version Check (loads but shows "failed")
    Referrer Bouncer
    Ryan Boren's Theme Switcher (needs two selects to load theme)
    Sem Frame-Buster
    Shire Reckoning 2
    WP-Dash (except for the recent posts and recent comments portions, which depend on some user info no longer included)
    WP-Dash World Time
    WP SpamAssassin
    Weather Icon (and the WP-Dash widget of the same name)

    CA-ColorPicker shows the quicktag button but doesn't actually display the picker; Enhanced Post List is borking on the user_level call....

    Out of 25+ plugins I use, only one (Live+Press) doesn't work, and it almost works...shouldn't be too much to get it working.

    After playing around with SK2 it appears that the comment count for posts is not increased if a comment is made while SK2 is activated with WP2B1. Disabling SK2 and commenting "fixes" this so there does seem to be some form of incompatibility.

    Anyone else experience this?

    Everything seems to work fine so far! The addition of Akismet and WP Database Backup is a good plus, I was just going to cite them in a post about essential plugins for WP. This will save me some typing ;o)

    The only minor gripe is an error spit out when using the K2 Theme on top of every post:
    WordPress database error: [Unknown column 'user_level' in 'where clause']
    SELECT COUNT(*) FROM wp_almaren_users WHERE user_level > 1

    This must probably be corrected in K2, not in WP, so I'm going to cross-post this on their support forums.

    I'm going to test it out this week-end, and let you know if anything else comes out, but for now thank you for your great work!

    citizenk: AFAIK, if you run wp-admin/upgrade.php then that should fix your problems.

  19. PJW WordPress Version Check (loads but shows "failed")

    Fixed! The Webservice didn't recognise the new version string yet!

    I do need to update the CSS though as the text plonks itself over the top of the "Sign Out/ Profile" links!

    Jark, no it shouldn't, that table has been removed in 1.6 in favor of capabilities.

    squible works for me, so that includes:

    wp_cats_as_tags(builtin)
    limit-post (builtin and modified)
    customizable-post-listings (builtin and modified)
    gravatars(builtin)
    Subscribe to comments
    Extended Live Archives
    Scrobbles

    Yes, jark - any plugin which relies on the user_level call is going to bork until it's rewritten. The plugin may remain at least partially usable (for instance, Enhanced Post Lists will display posts by month but obviously not by author or category), but the error message will always be present.

    I seem to be getting an error on my admin dashboard.

    WordPress database error: [Unknown column 'user_idmode' in 'field list']
    SELECT user_idmode, user_nickname, user_login, user_firstname, user_lastname FROM wp_users WHERE ID = '1'

    So far I've checked the User and Options and updated them accordingly and I'm still having the problem. Any help here on it?

    Another bug so it would seem. For some reason, the expandable/movable bars in "Write" seems to have disappeared. It was there when I first loaded the page, when I checked back at it, it's now gone. I've enabled and disabled the Rich Text Editor to see if that helps and it's still gone. I'm using Firefox 1.5rc3 if that helps.

    Any clues?

    I've set up a testbed site for WP 2.0 here:

    http://mytestbed.com/wordpress-beta/

    And am going through, favorite plugin by favorite plugin, to see what works and what doesn't. I have a WPMU-driven site elsewhere and it's interesting that some of the plugins that don't work on WPMU so far seem fine here.

    Am having trouble with the WP 2.0 image uploader, though.

    I'm wondering if a "broken plugins" thread would be easier for authors and users to sift through than a generic "beta released thread"?

    I don't have a huge number of plugins installed, but I'll test it out anyway (hey, what are site backups for? :P)

    Kamigoroshi, I just did a refresh and that worked on mine. See if it works for you.

    I'm using an old test server and I get the following:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function: glob() in c:\ibserver\www\wordpress\wp-includes\cache.php on line 225

    Could it be apache, php or mysql being too old? WP 1.5.2 works fine.

    Tnx,
    Loauc
