    Just a note for those of you who live on the forums. :)

  2. Is this for just the root directory, or in addition to the wp- subdirectories?

    "all you need to do is overwrite the wp-* files"
    I think you mean 'all wordpress files', not just those files that begin with 'wp-' ? Or do you ?

    I've updated it to say "files and folders." Basically you should overwrite it all.

    OK, so there is no need to run the upgrade script in this one?

    how important is it to upgrade the wp-login.php file? I'm currently using a modified admin section which changed my wp-login.php file.

    lawtai -
    did you figure out what was causing the error with the "users online" plugin? I am having errors now too.

    yea, you gotta go into your wp-settings.php file and add the table references.

    No need to run the upgrade script, but don't make that a habit!
    Replacing your old wp-login.php is fairly important.

    sorry for being so dense... can you tell me what I'm adding in the wp-settings file?
    thanks :)

    I found my plugin documentation and see what you were referring to.
    Thanks!

    this is assuming you're using both wp-useronline and wp-polls which were released on this forum.
    you'll need to add:
    $tablepollsa = $table_prefix . 'pollsa';
    $tablepollsq = $table_prefix . 'pollsq';
    $tableuseronline = $table_prefix . 'useronline';
    and this is also assuming you didn't do anything other than install these plugins. You'll want to open up wp-settings.php (the 1.2.1 version) and add these to where you see it say //Table names
    Hope this helps.

    Nothing has changed in index.php.

    I think it's ok to not upgrade your index/css since Matt did say that we should be careful to not overwrite our existing index files.

    If index.php and wp-layout.css weren't included in the file then the update can be applied with virtually no effort by anyone.
    I unzipped, removed index.php and wp-layout.css, created a tar file of the "rest of the files"
    and happily did a simple tar xf wp-update.tar whilst positioned in each of the WordPress directories that I have (only 11 blogs)

  20. Thanks Matt and podz. :)
