Upgrades: WordPress 2.8 and CommentLuv

Category: Site News — By @ 9:49 am

A couple of brief site notes:

1. WordPress 2.8 is expected to come out today. I wanted to avoid a major upgrade the same day as Flash: Rebirth #3, and of course instead of taking the sensible approach and waiting until the weekend to upgrade, I installed the release candidate a few days ago. (It’s not quite that bad. I did test it on my other blog first. Or does that make it worse?) Just about everything seems to work so far, though I’m not sure about email notifications. Update: It’s running on 2.8 final now.

2. CommentLuv has just launched their new site and plugin. The service adds a link to your latest blog post when you make a comment. The new version has some additional features for registered users: not only can you choose from several recent posts, you can add up to 5 different sources, including multiple blogs and a Twitter account.

Update: 3. Bad Behavior has released a new version as well. With luck this will block the pill spammers who have been cluttering up the spam folder. Akismet has kept them from making it through to the site, but there’s just been too much junk to look through it for false positives.

If you encounter any problems with the site, please let me know here!
