Upgraded WordPress to the latest and the greatest 2.1 version “Ella”. Relative painless upgrade but the Category Exclusion plugin I was using is broken. It was causing query_posts to return duplicate records for posts which have multiple categories. No biggie to fix; just remove the plugin and use the exclude parameter when calling the list categories function. Incidentally, while patching the theme, I found out that wp_list_cats is deprecated and is replaced by wp_list_categories in WP2.1.
What’s harder to fix is the problem WP Tiger Admin has with the tabbed Tiny MCE interface. Toggling between the Visual and Code modes causes the UI to go a little crazy. I regularly switch between both modes when editing a post, so this a bummer.
Other than, “Ella” seems to be working well. What I like most:
- Ability to toggle between WYSIWYG and code mode in the editor
- Improved upload manager – it’s a whole lot more intuitive now
I still prefer the Tiger Admin interface though, and I hope it gets fixed soon…
A duck in the US state of Florida has survived gunshot wounds and a two-day stint in a refrigerator.
A hunter shot the duck, wounding it in the wing and leg. Believing the bird was dead, he left it in his fridge at his home in Tallahassee.
The hunter’s wife got a fright when she opened the fridge and the duck lifted its head, a local veterinarian said.
