Upgrading WordPress 3.0
Upgrading to Wordpress 3.0 thelonious and going back to the default wordpress theme
Our blog looks a bit plain vanilla currently . Yes, we know that and our designers are hard at work creating a brand new wordpress template. That’s just a minor setback, but being a web development company doing several open source customization, we like to change our blog design every few days.
The good news is that we have just over the weekend , upgraded to WordPress 3.0 version (named Thelonious). The new version, undoubtedly with several brand new features and a nice looking admin interface was not a critical update but with open source scripts like WordPress , it is always better to upgrade as quickly as possible to prevent / protect your blog / website against hacking attempts quite common with mysql / XSS exploits becoming more and more rampant. If you need your blog to be upgraded , feel free to drop us a line , as our php programmers are very efficient and can help you smartly .
Currently we are using the pre-installed twentyten template which now comes with wordpress .
One of the smartest new feature in WordPress 3.0, i liked was the menu builder / menu management system. Besides this there are many more advancement such as the custom taxonomy, dynamic header, and contextual help per page / screen ( which i used to notice more in magento previously … very handy thing to have).
