I just went thru the emergency upgrade instructions and changed from 2.1.1 to 2.1.2. The instructions were clear; I got it done in 10 minutes; no problems.
I've tried other blog CMSs; WordPress has been by far the easiest to work with and the user information is the most complete and best written. It doesn't assume that we know what we're doing but addresses questions that new users and newbies to the entire thing will need to have answered.
Thanks to all of you who have put into this. Your work is appreciated.
