Testing WPMU 2.7
I thought it would be prudent to test the plugins, mu-plugins and themes I run at ucalgaryblogs.ca on the latest prerelease snapshot of WordPress Multiuser 2.7, to check for any incompatibilities or strangenesses. I grabbed the .zip archive from the SVN repository, dropped it onto my desktop, and installed a new site. I then grabbed the contents of my mu-plugins and plugins directories, and a subset of the themes that are used. After farting around repairing some file permission errors (caused by FTPing the files from the server to my desktop under a different user than apache runs under...) it looks like everything Just Worksâ„¢.
It wasn't an exhaustive test - I didn't try upgrading the databases for the sites that are running on ucalgaryblogs.ca - all I really needed to know was if the plugins needed some love before thinking of upgrading to 2.7. The good news is that they appear to be fine. Woohoo.
got a blog?
UCalgaryBlogs.ca now protected by Akismet
akismet for ucalgaryblogs.ca
I just got confirmation from Akismet that I can use the antispam service for free on UCalgaryBlogs.ca - early next week I'll figure out how to mu-plugin ify it, and hardcode the keys and links so everyone's covered automatically by Akismet. Sweet.
