WORDPRESS 2.3.3 IS AVAILABLE!!!!

  • This latest upgrade (2.3.3) doesn’t even let us know what the upgrade is for. For all we know, the upgrade does nothing more than fix a bug that allows the possibility someone might see draft versions of posts. I, for one, wouldn’t even care about that, as even my drafts are profound.

    Honestly, if you cannot be bothered to read, how can you be bothered to write?

    1. Your reference to the draft bug, wasnt a bug, thats a security issue, and it was fixed in 2.3.2. They’ve moved on to 2.3.3. Furthermore, how can you possibly say that they dont tell you what it;s for:

    I told you, in this thread. I mimic’d almost verbatim whats on the developers blog, here:

    http://wordpress.org/development/

    where, guess, what, they tell you what was changed, and even link to trac tickets.

    It’s a FIVE file upgrade. It takes 2 minutes, 1 whole minute to unzip the files, (if youre intellectually challenged) and one minute to upload the files (if youre on a dialup). For fuck sake, what is the fricken problem with the whiners?

    Honest to God, its a wonder anyone develops free software with the attitudes of some people. You bitch if youre hacked, you bitch when youre told you MIGHT be hacked, and you bitch when youre told to change FIVE files.

    I really do pity Matt, et al, sometimes. No wonder they hardly read this forum.

    I helped a guy over the phone two nights ago, upgrade his blog from v2.1.x to 2.3.2.. hes hosted on bluehost. We followed, nearly verbatim, the extended upgrade instructions on the codex. He did ALL the work. He backed up his databse inside phpmyadmin. he backed up his blog site. He did it all…

    He didnt have an ftp client when we started, he barely knew how to use one once installed, and he managed to do an upgrade with NOT one single problem.

    He upgraded to 2.3.3 last night: he went to my site, he downloaded the zip with the 5 files, he unpacked it, and uploaded the changed files. It took him, maybe, 4 minutes.

    I emailed him after he was done last night, and said this:

    “You managed to do what 100 ppl cant seem to get, pat yourself on the back”

    This guy is still on aol, and he’s a genius compared to some of you.

    Thanks for the change file list!!!!!

    Moving on, Skolo,

    you did not upload wp-includes/compat.php

    Hello, after upgrading I´m not able to click ANY links in my “presentation”-area. I´m not able to edit ANY theme.

    Can anybody help me please?

    After 2.3.3 upgrade, my web displays some text before header, i’m using WP-Multiflex3 theme:
    GET /complete/search?output=firefox&client=firefox&qu=multi HTTP/1.1 Host: suggestqueries.google.com User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; cs; rv:1.8.1.11) Gecko/20071127 Firefox/2.0.0.11 Accept: text/xml,application/xml,application/xhtml+xml,text/html;q=0.9,text/plain;q=0.8,image/png,*/*;q=0.5 Accept-Language: cs,en-us;q=0.7,en;q=0.3 Accept-Encoding: gzip,deflate Accept-Charset: windows-1250,utf-8;q=0.7,*;q=0.7 Keep-Alive: 300 Connection: keep-alive Cookie: PREF=ID=e1c2b99ee9293ddf:TM=1201951385:LM=1201951385:S=onOZpNMWtabq3V8P

    So i’m going back to 2.3.2 only updating xmlrpc.php.

    EDIT: I apologize, that error was caused by error in ftp transfer, i reupped whole thing and it’s working. Thanks for your excellent work.

    14words, at least you didn’t install the ‘old’ version only to have the new version come out a few hours later like i did. lol.

    Well, I’ve tried everything I can think of, including deleting the header image from the theme file then reuploading it to the theme file again. It’s showing exactly as it did before, but just not being recognized for some reason. I did get the sidebar image to come back by deleting it and then re-adding it. Unfortunately that did not work for the header image. However, I’ve discovered that the image will come up in IE but not in Firefox.

    LisaRenee777,

    I’m looking at both those sites in Firefox and I see the same header image in both.

    Thanks for the files whooami. Made it much easier to upgrade.

    whooami – it was not showing in my Firefox until I deleted the image again, refreshed then put the image again back into the theme file. Now, it is working for both. I still don’t understand what happened as far as why it quit appearing in Firefox but that seems to have resolved it.

    Thanks for your time and I’ve learned something new, when at first you don’t figure it out delete and upload again.

    🙂

    It’s a FIVE file upgrade. It takes 2 minutes, 1 whole minute to unzip the files, (if youre intellectually challenged) and one minute to upload the files (if youre on a dialup). For fuck sake, what is the fricken problem with the whiners?

    Whoa, whooami, talk about a big bucket of cold water on the warm feelings I have for WordPress.

    In my post, I offered a friendly suggestion, and noted it as such: if there is a choice between more and less frequent upgrades, I opt for the latter—or, perhaps, there could be the option of turning off the “upgrade available” notices if the upgrade isn’t something we feel we need.

    Does that warrant being cursed out by you?

    I know that the upgrade to prevent someone reading one’s drafts was 2.3.2. and not 2.3.3. That’s why I used that example. It spoke to my point and, I thought, was obviously tongue-in-cheek. (I acknowledge, however, that I did refer to the “security issue” as a “bug,” and I will try very hard from here on out never to use the term “bug” to describe a “security issue” again.)

    When I click on the “upgrade available” link in my control panel, it takes me to the WP download page, which does NOT contain any sort of information describing what, in fact, this latest upgrade actually does.

    Perhaps others are born knowing that,

    “in this thread. [you] mimic’d almost verbatim whats on the developers blog, here:

    http://wordpress.org/development/

    where, guess, what, they tell you what was changed, and even link to trac tickets.

    but I have no such congenital knowledge. And, in fact, that you mimicked something on a thread somewhere doesn’t mean that there is an explanation of the upgrade on the download page anyway.

    But I was hardly “whining.” As I said, in my post, “In any case, WordPress is not only awesome, it’s free, so please take this only as a friendly suggestion, and thanks for a great product and all y’all’s hard work.”

    Incidentally, I have no problem ftp-ing files between any of the dozen or so domains I run sites on, I haven’t used AOL since 1997, and I actually leave in WordPress links and attributions where I use it.

    And, in fact, that you mimicked something on a thread somewhere doesn’t mean that there is an explanation of the upgrade on the download page anyway.

    That you would even say that, proves whatever point I was making, since I mimic’d it in this thread, the thread you saw fit to add to, the thread you didnt read apparently, before adding to, or you would have seen my mimic.

    Further to that, whatever you might think about MY reply, I dont and have never have represented WordPress, I represent myself — someone that spends a LOT of time here helping people that dont read or cant read, people like you that register, leave, and come back 2 months later to post, people that dont bother to look at their dashboard, and dont read the links at the top of E V E R Y page on this site.

    Its a thankless hobby, I assure you.

    When I click on the “upgrade available” link in my control panel, it takes me to the WP download page, which does NOT contain any sort of information describing what, in fact, this latest upgrade actually does.

    For future reference, on your main WordPress dashboard page (yes, on your own site), you’ll find a section that says “WordPress Development Blog”. This links to all relevant information about WordPress and its development. It is always up-to-date.

    The current item at the top of that list is as follows:

    WordPress 2.3.3 — 3 days ago
    WordPress 2.3.3 is an urgent security release. If you have registration enabled a flaw was found in the XML-RPC implementation such that a specially crafted request would allow a user to edit posts of other users on that blog. In addition to fixing this security flaw, 2.3.3 fixes a few minor bugs. […]

    Check there next time, any relevant information will be right there on your main dashboard page.

    going back to wackedmarketers question (top of page 2) about load times… I have discovered that my site (www.jenleheny.com) is loading very slowly and I’m not sure what is causing it. I doubt it is this upgrade but I thought I would check so that I can look at other things instead and work it out.

    thanks! 🙂

    Are any of you having issues with using $_SESSIONS with this upgrade? It seems that my WordPress pages can write to them okay. I have some external php scripts that also write to them. They seem to write to them successfully. But then when I open the next word press page, the session variables written by the php are now empty.

    My website was working 2 weeks ago without any problems.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
