Upgrade Downtime Feb 27, 2007 – 19:00 – 21:00 EST

February 26th, 2007 by May

Taking the step to upgrade to WordPress version 2.11 Ella with security upgrade tomorrow night. I’ve been putting off upgrading to Ella, but now that there’s a security upgrade, it’s time. I suspect that the work will take less time than the 2 hours I’m allotting. But years of web work in corporate america has taught me to be conservative in time estimates.

Looking forward to some of the new features especially the improved database performance.


Update

20:24 EST

Upgrade has been completed. It took longer than expected but still came in under the allotted time.

Most of the upgrade was successful except for that I lost one flicker badge widget (I’ll have to find something else.) and I had to do a last minute theme upgrade. That’s totally my bad judgment not to have previously checked the Cutline theme to see if it would have problems. I’m glad I had put off the upgrade until now since all the problem has been addressed by Chris and all I had to do was download the new version of Cutline.

Since I have been modifying cutline all along, I had a lot of files to fix up. But I do like some of the things he did to the theme to make future upgrades easier. The broken out IE6 and IE7 css files are a good touch. As is the customized custom.css file for tweakers like myself.

I still have to go back to make sure everything is okay, I already see a little styling fixes that I need to make. But nothing that cannot be done at a later time.

Please let me know if you see any problems. Thanks.
