WordPress 2.5 upgrade

Sunday, March 30, 2008

WordPress logo Today spiral::notepad was upgraded to WordPress 2.5 (released yesterday). The basic design of my custom theme has stayed the same, but I took this opportunity to add some features and widgets I had wanted to implement in my theme for awhile.

WordPress 2.5 improvements include “multi-file uploading, one-click plugin upgrades, built-in galleries, customizable dashboard, salted passwords and cookie encryption, media library, a WYSIWYG that doesn’t mess with your code, concurrent post editing protection, full-screen writing, and search that covers posts and pages.”

I still haven’t added most of those old pre-WordPress entries, from June 2002 to February 2007. Oh well.

I have a couple of random notes to add: All South Park episodes are now available to watch online (legally). As to why they’re now streaming full episodes of all 12 seasons for free, Matt Stone says: “Basically, we just got really sick of having to download our own show illegally all the time. So we gave ourselves a legal alternative.”

Also, a friend sent me this McSweeney’s guide: “The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Meeting People More Famous Than You.” It’s amusing.
