    From what I'm reading in a few tabs, people are having issues with WP 3.0. I'm guessing its better to wait out the storm then to install it or will there always be problems when you're upgrading?

    less than .1% ?

    I would like to know where is the new features' documentation?

    I cannot find any "official" doc about Custom Menus, headers and background.

    Is this what you're looking for?


    If you're looking for more in-depth documentation, most of it has yet to be written (as you can probably see from the red (broken) links). The Codex is volunteer-powered and anyone with a support forum login is welcome to contribute to it.

    Personally, I've found 3.0 to be a complete pleasure to upgrade to.

    The only isolated incidents I've experienced relate to outdated plugins or installations that weren't on 2.9.2 prior to upgrade.

    If you backup properly before attempting an upgrade there's really no reason to be scared.

    PS - Comparing WP 3.0 to Vista is just plain wrong : P

    like has been pointed out before.... people come to this forum solely to ask for help. So the only thing you will see on here is help requests, you will only read posts from people having issues.

    We have not had millions of new support requests since 3.0 came out... so draw your own conclusions.

    I am not a Dev, Programmer or a Pro.

    I am playing with 3.0 since it came out to get the feel of it before switching my personal blog from 2.92 to 3.0.

    Like any new thing, learning to use it properly takes time.

    The more I learn about 3.0, the more I like it!!

    My laptop also has vista pre-installed on it.

    After having used both Vista and WP 3.0, In my opinion there is no comparison between the both.

    Is Version 3.0 WordPress's "Vista"

    Nope - WP3.0 works and is a pleasure to use. (in my experience).

    Is it the case that a lot of the people reporting problems are installing it on cheapo hosting and not following the recommendations to do a full backup & disable plugins before upgrading? In other words "maybe they're holding it wrong." ;o)
