I took the plunge and installed WordPress 2.3. For the most part, it was pretty straight forward. Do follow the standard upgrade instructions (including deactivating your plugins). I didn’t do that and left the Ultimate Tag Warrior enabled. After running the upgrade.php, I had issues still, referencing UTW. So I went to the plugin directory and deleted the plugin manually. Once deleted, I was able to view through most of my blog.

A word to the wise, if you used any tagging plugins (like UTW), take a look at the IMPORT tab under Manage. There, you can get many of your old tags into the new tag system. Doing this fixed a bunch of errors I was having on click-throughs on my tags.

I currently only have one issues (that I have found thus far) which probably has to do with the new Category/Tagging process. There is an error that says:

WordPress database error: [Table ‘weblog_td.wp_categories’ doesn’t exist]
SELECT cat_ID FROM wp_categories WHERE cat_name=’Asides’

Which looks like an easy fix once I understand the new DB structure.

More later as I dig through this upgrade. If you find any other issues, drop me a note or comment.

  1. Fixed my issue with the theme and the Asides category. Had to identify where the issue was and correct the DB query. Things were really changed in the DB structure to handle the new tagging system.
    Yeah!
