Loooong Week


It’s Friday and I couldn’t be happier!! Chris has been gone all week on business in Atlanta – so I’ve had no one keeping tabs on me around here. He’s always good for making sure I do things like eat, sleep, drink…. basic life stuff. Sleeping has been at a minimum around here lately – – as has eating . . . drinking is another story. As you know, coffee is my life-blood.

I’m just about to make the upgrade to WordPress 1.5 on this blog. So if you notice anything wonky – it’s just me breaking stuff.


I guess the upgrade went ok. I’m not crazy about 1.5 – – I don’t hate it, but I’m not going to rave about it either. I’m not crazy about multiple templates – – that drove me nuts in MT. I liked the simplicity of one template in WP. I guess you could probably still use just one – – but I seperated them out into the different templates because I felt like I had to. Oh the pressure! The admin panel SAYS main, header, footer, sidebar, stylesheet, etc, etc – – I’d feel like I was missing something if I didn’t use it!

I was hoping the auto-thumbnail feature in the image upload area would work in this version. I was disapointed – it doesn’t. The option is there – but it doesn’t work. Yes, yes – I have all the necessary image libraries on the server – that’s not the issue. Actually – I don’t know what the issue is. I haven’t talked to one person yet who has it working – do you?

It does have a nice ability to make easy pages within the site – that’s a nice feature.

I’ll have to dig around a bit more before I cast my final verdict – – but, really – so far, I could have lived without the upgrade – – it ain’t all that.

  1. i was going to use WPv1.5 for the index page at splashhall.org but now after reading your review not sure if its worth all the file changing ..can ya tell i’m getting coding lazy? LOL

  2. Not being technical in the least most of what you said went right over my head, but it did start me thinking. Wouldn’t it be nice to just put in a request for what you for your blog and someone would come up with it for you. I really need to do more reading 😉

  3. surfed thru from blog explosion – and you’re right: when someone else is out of town, it’s nuts just getting the basics done. in the summer, my wife the teacher will take our kids to her mom’s beach house or something, and it’s just me & the animals – i remember to eat, and try to stay occupied with movies, but that’s about it ’til they get home.

    good post! glad the MT stuff is working out for you – at least as much as it’s cooperating.
