I'm hesitant to upgrade to WP2 because of error posts I've read on the support forum, and uncertain if the advantages of WP2 outweigh any imagined risks. Should I attempt it?
Background: I keep backups of my database but have never reinstalled it. I have worked with WordPress for 1 year and know my way around the files in the FTP, but I am novice at the theme and MySQL.
My site only uses a modified Kubrick theme (should be simple right, it's the default - but I have read about errors), with about 15 plugins, and I'm afraid it will break in the upgrade and how will I pinpoint what's to blame? Yes, I can check the list for compatible plugins, and can delete any plugins that won't work in the upgrade. But what about the theme? Should I expect to start-over on my theme?
Also, I am satisfied with WP 1.5.x, except that I want to use Gallery 2.1.x and WP-G2, and they recommend strongly WP 2.x. Is it worth upgrading for this situation?
