I’d like to say it’s been a “quiet week here in…Lake WordPress”, but that’s never quite true. There is always something going on. New WordPress Plugins are coming out so fast, fans can hardly keep up with them. Old ones are being updated for WordPress 2.x compatibility, and the new WordPress Plugin Directory is on fire with new and updated Plugins. The next version of WordPress is due out in less than a month, so developers are heating up the net as they get bugs fixed and new features added and old ones improved. And news should be out any day on WordCamp 2007.
WordCamp 2007 – July 21-22: WordCamp 2007 will be July 21-22 in San Fransisco and there is now a Meetup page for the event, with no information. If you are interested in attending, why not start signing up. That will help give the planners an idea of attendance.
Number One Reason For Not Upgrading: While you might think that the time and effort to upgrade your WordPress blog is the main reason people don’t upgrade, the number one reason is the fear that their WordPress Plugins and Themes won’t work with the upgrade. While this might be true for major version upgrades, security upgrades rarely impact WordPress Plugins and Themes. Don’t risk your blog by not upgrading security releases. There is evil floating out there looking for suckers like you.
