WordPress v2.0 Comments Bug

I upgraded my weblogs to WordPress v2.0 a couple of weeks ago and just noticed that the link at the bottom of each post read “No comments”, even if there were comments. Here’s the fix for that. I’m running the wonderful Spam Karma plugin. It has been updated to v2.1 recently and there is a […]

WordPress v2.0 Login Fix

I upgraded this and two other weblogs to WordPress v2.0 the other day.  There was a minor issue with the login script that wouldn’t keep me logged into the administration panel.  The cookie didn’t seem to be “sticking”, so I had to log in just about every time I jumped to the panel.

WordPress Upgrade Display Goofiness

I’m in the process of upgrading my weblogs to WordPress v1.5. When I upgraded the first one, the display on the WordPress control panel was very strange, with the weblog title overlapping a WordPress logo. It turns out that the WordPress logo was from the old version, the weblog title from the new version, and […]
