Moving Into A New Home

All boxes are unpacked and the sofa has now been moved six or seven times. I have also recategorised all my books and put a picture frame over the unsightly hole in the wall. I have now moved from lostaddress.org over to here at lostaddress.wordpress.com – time to put my feet up, I think.

Obviously, I couldn’t bring over all my old stuff and so I had to leave it behind, but the new home is comfortable enough and I’ll probably stick around for a while longer….

More details can be found at the old home for this site, but hopefully my usual visitors will find me here. Or I’ll have some new ones, who knows?

WordPress.org 2.6.1

Quick Note: WordPress 2.6.1 is out.  If you are running an older version, especially if you haven’t even

WordPress.org

WordPress.org

gone to 2.6.0 yet, you should upgrade – you’re missing out on new functionality and you may be at risk of having your site taken over.

Things to remember when upgrading: deactivate your plugins first, not all plugins work with all versions and you may need to find alternates.  Check that your themes will support the latest versions and that any custom code you may have inserted (you did comment the code, didn’t you?) won’t produce conflicts.

Finally, read the documentation for upgrading.  If you are new to WordPress.org and need to know how to install it, there is documentation for that, too.  If you get stuck, the WordPress.org forums are a source of knowledge and help – search first and then ask your question in the right sub-forum.
