    Please feel free to use the whole of the Beta forum :)

    There's plenty of room and a good title for your post will help you and the devs.

    > "Fatal error: Call to undefined function: glob()"
    This is due to the version of PHP installed by your hosting company being too old. Glob() was introduced in PHP 4.3 onwards.

    Plugins working for me are:

    Extended Live Archives
    CSS Compress

    There are many "success" stories going around of people "upgrading". Two points:

    1. You are not 'upgrading', you are TESTING.

    2. There are people for whom it has not gone right, who did not do complete backups of absolutely everything and who are now having problems getting a working blog.

    Yes.... really folks, do NOT use this on a "LIVE" blog yet! Set up a testsite blog, or don't GO THERE. Don't you think it would be seriously scary to lose your whole blog?

    AT LEAST make sure you have a complete backup of your whole installation, themes, plugins, etc. AND your database. TWICE!

    Great! I've been waiting for this. I plan to try it out somewhere far far away from my actual blog. I'm excited to see the new features in action that I've been hearing about so long.

    So what are the new features of WordPress 2.0? Anything worth bragging about?

  13. Why don't you download it and try installing it somewhere? ;)

    Something very strange: all the images in the directory, including the ones that accompany the installation process as well as theme screenshots, don't show up during the install process or when browsing the admin pages. I'm using Safari and Firefox on OS X, and their activity monitors tell me the images are "forbidden." Is there some kind of permissions issue going on with the latest beta download? I've tried playing around with permissions on a few directories and files, but I can't seem to fix the issue. Any thoughts are appreciated!

    TH1CK:

    did you try and run the Maintenance Tasks from within G2's Site Admin? did you try another g2 theme and see if the issue was still there? matrix perhaps?

    i have a sandbox that uses g2 nightly & wordpress beta and i don't see the issue at all. it's probably because it's g2 nightly.

    When I try other themes, I get the missing theme error.

    Beta-2 looks very good. I now have a test blog running under xampp/Linux. Why risk the live blog?!

    Hi there,
    I'm testing a new release of Lazyest Gallery plug-in (0.7.2, that is actually under development) with the new WP 2.0 rc1 and I found a strange issue with imagecreatetruecolor().
    Image creations are broken somewhere, but trying with WP 1.5.2 this php lib function is working pretty well...

    Am I doing something wrong or did I find a bug?

    greets

    BTW: the link to WP 2.0-beta-2 is broken... it ends up pointing to the RC1 candidate. Is there a Beta 2?

    Does the RC1 candidate get a nightky build? I have the Nov 29 version. Is that the most recent?

    WP is now onto RC1. Any bugs should have their own thread, noting version number. I'm locking this thread so as to prevent anything getting lost in it. Links for RC1
