Just found the news…there goes the rest of my evening!
Yow, you guys/gals must have worked some long nights – wasn’t 2.5 released just a few months ago?!?
Just downloaded and installed it. LOVE IT SO MUCH! The ordering of the gallery is orgasmic.
Yay! Congratulations and thanks for the news! 🙂
[…] 2.6 and Cookies […]
Great news Matt!!!
I love the post revision feature. I’m anticipating all sorts of plugin development going on thanks to this new feature.
I guess it is time to start integrating this with all our plugins – I thought we’d have more time. Its going to be a late night in NZ!!! Time to put the coffee machine on…
Question… is it just me… but some reason images I upload are going to the default wp-content/uploads folder instead of the “images” folder that I declared.
just updated 2 mins ago, great job guys!!
BUT I’m having real problems playing any video hosted over at wordpress.org?
Could you post a YouTube alternative?
Congratulations on releasing early – a rare thing in software development!
I was coming by to read the post which was short and sweet, you have a beautiful page! I love the colors in your theme ~ they’re gorgeous
It looks cool. But have one problem..
I currently have 21 plugins active but in my dashboard, it shows as only 11 plugins are active. I will show you the exact problem with screenshots later.
Good job Matt! Was looking forward to SSL. Now I will go ahead and implement it since upgrading to WP is a piece of cake.
Ummm Matt, you may want to check the forums for a nasty re-direct bug as the result of upgrading to the new version.
OK – this made me smile:
Dolemite, any more details? Seems to be working well here.
Gabe, yep, and it was! 🙂
Sadly Matt, I’m not going to be able to sample all the new delights of 2.6 as I’ve had to revert to my WP2.5.1 backup.
I was hoping 2.6 would have resolved the TinyMCE editor bug that messes up the code when you have an iframe on the page.
Worse still the “work-around” I was using, that involves modifying the file ‘tiny_mce_config.php’ (http://wordpress.org/support/topic/156276?replies=12#post-804140)
doesn’t seem to work at all in 2.6.
Where can I find info on the specific cookies that are set? I’m trying to figure out how to fix an authentication plugin for 2.6 that relies on the old way of doing cookies in order to verify that a user is logged in.
Just upgrade my WP installation… everything looks great! Love the Gears and Press This feature! Great job!
I’ve updated a half hour ago. great job guys
Good job guys!
One problem you might want to check. When making a page (and maybe a post) slug in Greek (and maybe in another language with special characters) it throws a 404 error. Not a big problem, unless you have special characters in all your post/page slugs!..
Again, well done 🙂
Yet again a great job of the team
Congratulations, great job. wordpress in on his way to become a big cms!
This is some awesome release mate. congrats.
Dolemite: Do you refer to upgrade using WP Automatic Upgrade plugin and redirect fails? Yes, there is a issue about logging with Firefox 3. You need to clear private data (cookies, cache, etc.)… See this: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/188870
Dolemite, if you get the ‘infinite redirect’ error, try clearing your browser cookies for the site. That worked for me!
Had now completed 25 upgrades with no plugin or theme issuess / only 10 more to go – seems pretty good so far – thanks guys
is anyone else having problems uploading images?
