Finally upgraded to WordPress 2.0.2

I’ve been holding off upgrading due to partial laziness and fear of change. Also, I knew it’d take awhile for me since I have a page worth of plugins I had to check out. But, I’m pretty much liking how my WordPress.com blog feels, so I figured I should upgrade. (Plus, since WordPress 2.0.2 came out, I didn’t want to be prone to any bugs with 1.5.2.)

So far, all the big plugins work. However, I’m struggling with:

  • Ultimate Tag Warrior – I’m fearing it’s power
  • Running PHP within pages, because RunPHP didn’t work for me like I was hoping it would
  • Re-tweaking the theme to the way it was before, such as the header and sidebar

Thanks to Podz for his “Upgrade to 2.0” guide, and to Matt for his 2.0 Plugin Compatibility page.

I’ll update this post as things progress and get back to normal (whatever that means).

Update 1: I’m not going through my list from top to bottom, so I picked the easiest project – re-tweaking the theme. 20 minutes later, that’s crossed off and finished. Whee!

Update 2: I can’t get SRG Clean Archives to work with Exec-PHP. Viper007Bond got it to work, so hopefully he can help me out. I don’t think it’s the PHP plugin because myStatus 0.5 works. Also, I don’t think I’ll be seeing asides anytime soon.
