Disclaimer: I've grown up a bit and learned a lot since this blog was started. In the beginning I took tips from the likes of John Chow and Shoemoney and tried to write titles and content for Digg and Reddit. In the end it didn't do me much good and most of it just seems silly looking back. If you're interested anyway, here's what I wrote back then, but take it with a grain of salt.
Since I found out that HappyCog redid the admin for WordPress 2.5 I’ve been interested to see what it looks like. This morning I decided it was time. I originally used the DreamHost one-click install to setup my initial install, and although it is a nice feature, I decided that SVN was more my thing. Going through the steps provided was pretty simple, and my upgrade was complete in about five minutes total.
As far as compatibility, all of my existing plugins “worked” but the XML Sitemap plug-in looks a little funny thanks to the new admin design. While I was at it I added the ClickPass plugin as a follow-up to my recent foray into OpenID. I’m not sure it’s working correctly, I can login with my ClickPass account (which I’m assuming is cookie based), but have been unsuccessful merging my preferred OpenID, or even the one Technorati provides. I will have to look into that one a little further, but until then, no ClickPass for me.
