Support » Installing WordPress » Successful upgrades to WP 2.1!

  • As much as this is a support forum, I know some people scan these threads to decide whether or not to upgrade… so this is a topic for those of us who had a smooth transition! Despite having all kinds of customizations, everything went quite well for me. I upgraded from 2.0.4 to 2.1 without trouble. Kudos to the dev team for all the new goodies!

    Anyone else do well? 🙂

  • Mine went ok except for the code to call the links which are now under Blogroll.

    Agree with Xander perhaps some good news help. I tried few one-click upgrade from various old versions 1.5.2, 2.0.1….to 2.1 all without problem. I even didn’t deactivate plugins and kept my own theme during upgrade, see experience here

    Zero issues encountered, not even with links. I tested it on a local copy first and found 1 plugin (CJD Notepad) that didn’t work, which I really wasn’t using any way. Didn’t bother re-activating it when upgrading the live site. Hope this helps.

    No problem 2.0.5 to 2.1 – just the usual upgrade process.

    HOWEVER, I’m using Firefox on OSX and the spell checker (feature most excited about) doesn’t work!! It seems to run, but doesn’t find any mis-spellings. Pretty much all my clients use Internet Explorer so from their point of view it’s fine – any feedback from anyone on this or am I doing something wrong?

    I have Yahoo! Small Business web hosting and have heard about this mythical one-click upgrade to WordPress. I have never found this utility and wonder if there is a link, either in WordPress or Yahoo!, to more information.

    I don’t know about Yahoo small biz hosting (with them for 2 weeks then left) but most hosting offers cPanel with Fantastico which is an add-on software for hassle free automated installation/upgrade of open source software such as WordPress.

    You’ll have to ask Yahoo to find out if they offer that.
