WordPress 3.0 “Thelonious” Update

WordPress 3.0 “Thelonious” was released on June 17. I did not have time until yesterday to update The Digital Awakening blog engine. WordPress has made this process painless and fuss-free. It was accomplished with just two clicks, the first the “Update to 3.0” button in the Dashboard and the second the “Upgrade Automatically” button at the Upgrade page. I also updated all plugins to the latest version with another click of the button.

Everything seems to be working fine except “CG-Archive by Year” plugin. This displays the blog archive by month and categorised under year at the sidebar. I turned it off and reverted to using template tag. Although the latter does not group the monthly archives by year, it shall do for now until I can find another plugin that does something similar.

The update includes a new default template called the Twenty Ten. It has a nice and clean layout, a template that I would want to use for this blog. This theme is also very configurable. However, I am holding back because I am not ready to work on it to suit my needs at the moment.
