WordPress 2.6 installed

If all went well, you won’t see any difference.

However, it seems to have blown away all of my categories. Hmm.

EDIT: Fixed my categories, what a pain. I fixed them by following steps at this article. If you happen to have this problem with your blog when updating from 2.0x to 2.6, only the last step is actually needed (you don’t need to mess around in your phpMyAdmin page) — but you do have to repeat the step for each category. I have 30 categories, so this was annoying, but it’s done now. If you see anything else about the blog acting funky, please let me know.

EDIT THE SECOND: I’ve switched on avatars and converted from the default permalink structure to a month-and-name-based structure. (Old links will still work.)

EDIT THE THIRD: I’ve installed a plugin to make it easier to read this blog on an iPhone/iPod Touch.

If none of the above makes any sense to you, ignore it. 🙂

    By default does WordPress keep old permalinks in place or do they redirect to the new names? Been thinking of streamlining mine.

    By default it does redirect to the new names. For example, see the “First entry” link under “The Beginning” in the sidebar to the right. The original permalink was with the post id, 3, but now it automatically shows the new URL after you click it.

    However, if that’s not what you want, I bet there’s a way to write the .htaccess file so that it knows not to rewrite the URLs for your old-style permalinks.
