Upgraded to WordPress 1.5

WordPress 1.5 was released this week, and I’ve only just found the time to upgrade. The upgrade process was a breeze.

I’m still running the default theme, so all I need to do now is to apply re-apply the PaperCut Software template. I’m wondering whether it’s worth creating a PaperCut theme, or just hack the template like we did previously. The themes seem to be a more manageable solution, but it’s probably a bit more work too. I guess it’s something to investigate over the next few days.


  • I’ve also installed WP1.5 and I intend to move my MT blog over to it, because I’ve had all sorts of problems with MT, like spam, and I’ve had friends say they won’t touch MT now because of this. The only problem I’ve found is the links to the RSS feeds at the bottom – the link begins “feed:http://“, which my browser (Mozilla Camino) doesn’t recognise as a protocol (and I’m not sure how many others do, either). I recorded my first impressions of it here.
