WordPress 1.5 (Strayhorn)

I upgraded to WordPress 1.5 !

It took me just a few minutes to upgrade WordPress and few more to get the CleanBreeze theme configured. I’d forgotten to disable the 1.2 plugins before doing the upgrade and when I finally got to the upgrade script, it spat a few errors. Add to that a few minor modifications I’d done to the original DB… I was ready to see the whole site go down but hey, the upgrade script took care of it all!

There are a lot of enhancements in 1.5. You can see a few of them in the announcement. The feature that I like most?

Another thing we observed and heard was that you wanted to use the elegant WordPress interface to manage more of your content than just your blog. In other systems people would get around limitations by making everything a post and playing with templates in bizarre ways, which you can do with WordPress too, but sometimes you don’t want a template or another post — you want a page. In 1.5 we added the “pages” feature which allows you to run your entire site through WordPress, if you want. For example, you could create a page called “About” and it would be automatically added to your sidebar and the link would be example.com/about/ and then you could create a sub-page of that called “My Dog” which would live at /about/my-dog/. You can have two pages or a thousand, manage your blog and a few photo pages or an entire corporate intranet 20 levels deep.

If you use WordPress, I highly recommend upgrading to 1.5.
