WordPress 2.6 Update Completed

The CWF Game Cast has completed its update from its 2.5.1 version of WordPress to 2.6. Why do this, you may ask. Instead of trying to explain it all to you, the WordPress people did a great job of it already.

Please read WordPress 2.6 at the official WordPress blog. That explains all the reasons why we are updating.

The upgrade was performed using the automatic upgrade plugin.  We used this opportunity to update all our plugins once 2.6 was fully installed.  The only problem was with our Date Countdown plugin resulting from its update.  We have removed the plugin for the time being as it is more trouble than it is worth.

We also installed and activated Gears that should result in speedier blogging.  If you have a user account and use either Internet Explorer or Firefox please do the following.  Sign into your account.  Go to Site Admin.  At the top right of the screen you’ll see your username, Log Out, Help, Forums, and Turbo.  Click on Turbo and then install and activate Gears.  If you are on a dial-up connection (i.e. AOL) you’ll receive a speedier user experience on the blog.
