Maybe I will try downgrading. Originally I had tried out 1.3 in hopes that the password protection feature would work properly (it didn’t in 1.2 until earlier today), but it was (still is, with the new cookiehash stuff?) broken in 1.3 as well. At that point I was already committed to my apparently foolish course. Now that 1.2.1 is fixed, I was hoping to get back to that point.
If not, no big loss to the blogging world. I’m just a stupid user, I guess. Thanks for the friendly, helpful atmosphere.
if you’re not prepared to deal with problems, do not use an alpha build of 1.3 on a production blog. if you want to see what 1.3 is offering, set up a test blog with a separate installation and separate db, so that you won’t have to deal with all this downgrading nonsense when you realize 1.3 is not what you expected.
