Boy, I'm frustrated. There are a few things in my wordpress blogs 1.5 that I needed to get a little bit more educated on, like perma-links and the such. However, the new codex has a number of problems:
1) Like other have commented- the general layout is too spread out, there's too much whitespace. I used to be able to look at the main screen and pretty much find what I was looking for.
1b) You tell me to log into the codex, well- I have an account. When I log in, I get a blank screen. Even the source is blank. I delete my cookie and try again. Same problem. Also, you shouldn't have to create an account and log in to have a functional codex. The old codex was just fine. THis new reliance on the wordpress stylesheet is kind of cumbersome when you're trying to parse a lot of information.
2) The codex can't be searched from within the codex, nor from the support forums.
3) I don't know if what's in the codex applies to 1.5 or 2.0... I'm concerned that the support I'll be looking for will not apply to the version I'm running.
I want to upgrade to wordpress 2.0, but I'm not confident that I'll be able to adequately get the support I need, mainly because the search functions in support and codex don't work.
I was originally going to do this upgrade a month ago and noticed these problems. I figured I'd hold off until they got sorted out, I konw a new lauch of anything takes time to get the wrinkles out, but how long do I have to wait before I can get support on either the old or the new version of wordpress?
