I’ve activated the Akismet plugin to automate spam comment checking. I’m still looking at everything myself, so there shouldn’t be false positives that get lost; merely delayed a bit.
And had some difficulty with the “maintenance mode” plugin, so I was down longer than I had expected. Sorry if anybody hit that window!
Just for tracking, here’s the record of my upgrade to WordPress 2.6.
The .1 release came out pretty fast, but I haven’t gone looking to see what made it necessary.
(I make entries for this to make it easier to keep track of when upgrades happened, in case you’ve forgotten.)
And it seems to have gone pretty cleanly (this is a big upgrade, looks like, including database change). And the new visual editor respects my page width, and generally looks like a lot less trouble (version 3.0 of tinyMCE).
So I’m heading out of town in a couple of hours after doing the upgrade; I guess we’ll see how that works out.
