Blog upgrade to WordPress 2.6

I have been running my version of WordPress 2.3.3 for ages now and even when the new 2.5.1 version came out, I didn’t upgrade it. However, I thought it was due time to upgrade to the latest version now that 2.6 is out. I was most worried that the way my blog would look may change and I would spend an age trying to bring it back.

I backed up 22 megs of my blog and then performed the upgrade. It’s is a very simple process, you just drag the new WordPress version over the existing and it just updates the files which have changed.. the whole process takes about 5 mins. The next time you log into your admin pages, you get a note that the database needs upgrading.. you just click ok and it does it automatically.

The admin pages do look different and takes some getting used to.

However, my blog looks exactly the same to visitors.. in fact, I guess most people if I didn’t tell them wouldn’t even know that the blog has been updated at all.

Look at the video below for some features of the new 2.6 version:
