Aahh … it’s April. The weather is getting warmer … well, I think it is – my house is very cold since the heat is turned off for the season. Apparently that builds character or so I’m told. And while I’m happy that Spring is here/coming April is not one of my favorite months. I’m not sure why but November and April are the saddest times of the year for me – maybe it has something to do with the change from one season to another. It also rains an awful lot in April. I don’t mind rain but since I walk everywhere and half the time I’m with a 6 year old, it can get a little annoying. Anyway, on to the links …
It seems that Spring may finally be on the way. At the beginning of this week it was 15 degrees and snowing. Now at the end, it is sunny and 60. Seems a bit extreme. Anyway, this week I have information about twitter, fun with photos, threaded comments in Thesis, content theft, and happiness.
WordPress 2.7 comes with an auto-upgrade feature, which makes upgrading much easier but is not without it’s potential problems. So far, I have come across three issues that seem to be the ones most frequently encountered.
The three issues are related to losing theme customizations, the upgrade won’t occur because of a plugin incompatibility, and lack of core support from your webhost.
Well, it’s already been another week. It’s hard to believe – they just seem to be flying by. This week I feature more about how WordPress has changed lives, a gorgeous site redesign, giant dolls, the blogging process, working with photos and creepy ads.
- WordCamp Portland – How WordPress Changes Lives – Lorelle Van Fossen gave a presentation at WordCamp Portland about how WordPress changes lives. This was part of the same presentation that involved Glenda Hyatt Watson. This part of the presentation, however, is about regular people like you and me. If you don’t want to watch the entire video, please watch for about 30 seconds starting at the 6th minute ;-)
- Redesign at Perishable Press – Jeff at Perishable Press redesigned his site. Please visit his site and marvel at the beauty of the design and at his design skills. I used to visit the site to learn advanced WordPress hacks – now I just site there and stare at the design.
I have finally finished the redesign and am ready to start posting again. I have a few tweaks to do and pages to add but overall I am done.
