HOW-TO, WordPress FAQs, WordPress Hack

I tried to help a co-worker with a professional blog for a TV channel yesterday and ran into some weird issues. We host the blog on a Windows 2008 server with IIS and Plesk. The WordPress install from within the Plesk worked fine but ours did not. The “white screen of death” on the install screen was perplexing (more on that at the bottom of this article), but every time he tried to either upgrade WordPress or install or upgrade a plugin or theme, he would receive warnings or failures stating that WordPress was unable to find the wp-content directory. This warning can take various forms but circle around the fact that WordPress did not find the right directory in the expected place. The obvious and painless solution is to upload the files directly to the server using FTP and then control the blog from within wp-admin. In this case, […]

WordPress 2.9 Feature Focus Batch Plug-in Updates

WordPress 2.9 (Carmen) has been officially released and has quite a few new features.  Some are visible and right on the page while many others are under the hood.  One of the features that I really like is the ability to bulk update my plug-ins.  In previous versions of WordPress you had to update each plug-in individually by clicking on the automatic upgrade link in the WordPress plug-in, entering your FTP credentials and then waiting for the update to happen. If you had a lot of plug-ins this process could take a while to do. To utilize the new bulk update process go to the Tools>Upgrade menu in the admin panel:    There you will find a screen that looks something like this": Select the check boxes for all the plug-ins you want to update and then press the Upgrade Plug-in button at the bottom and you will then be […]

Mark Jaquith recently posted over at the WordPress.org blog that the  WordPress 2.0.x Legacy Branch is Deprecated – in other words retired and no longer supported for the most important aspect – security updates. It had gotten a little long in the tooth as it was published back in late December 2005. However, WordPress 2.0 was revolutionary in many ways.  Think back to WordPress 2.0 and how that changed WordPress as we knew it at the time. Some of those changes we now take for granted included: Completely Redesigned Backend Included Spam and Backup Plugins Inline Uploading Faster Posting Post Preview User Roles labelled Header Customization WordPress 2.0 certainly set us on the path to the WordPress we know and love today.  Congratulations 2.0 on a terrific service life – rest in peace “Duke”. Time For An Upgrade? What does this mean for you as an individual blogger, website developer […]

Blogging News, WordPress

WordPress 2.8.1 is now available for download or upgrade according to the WordPress Development Blog. This release includes a bunch of bug fixes and security updates, including an important one that affects a few plugins (details here). The update highlights are listed on the dev blog post and all the changes since 2.8 are on the Trac. I don’t see the upgrade bar on this blog yet, but it should be soon. Since 2.8.1 is now released, I wish Dev4Press would redo their benchmarks.

WordPress 2.6.2.: This release is in response to a recent warning to developers from Stefan Esser about the dangers of SQL Column Truncation and weaknesses of mt_rand(). The issue at hand that forced the release is discussed in detail on the WordPress.org blog post linked above. Basically the attack is complex, is dependent on open registration being turned on in your blog, but can be executed in theory and turns out to be more of an annoyance than an actual exploit. If you have open registration on your blog, the WordPress.org team recommends that you upgrade your install to WordPress 2.6.2 A handful of other fixes are also included in this upgrade. Here is a list of changed files.
