The Digital Awakening is now running under WordPress 2.5. The upgrade was straightforward and painless – download, unzip and upload. I did not even bother to delete files from the previous version. Everytime WordPress releases a new version, my reservation is whether the plugins will be compatible. The plugins are working fine with this latest version so far although there are newer versions for some of them.
One thing that needs a little getting used to is the dashboard look and layout. It is a radical change from the familiar layout that we have come to expect from previous versions. Links for the menu has been moved around and regrouped while new functions have also been added to the dashboard, namely the add media icons. I have yet to use it. I am not a WordPress power user. Some of these new functions will be lost on me. As long as I do not have problems posting entries I am happy – new version or otherwise.
