Upgraded to WordPress 2.2

I upgraded my blogging software to WordPress 2.2 this weekend. Except for a few little things I think it went fairly well. I waited to do this until I could see some of the problems that people had and then benefit from their solutions. Some things on the back end are a bit wonky but for the most part it all seems OK.

For those of you on my mailing list the notifications of the latest posts were sent out and appeared to be a jumbled mess. I was able to improve this and I believe it has been corrected. Please let me know via the contact for or email if you see anything that needs my attention (thanks to Wayfarer for the heads up).

Speaking of notifications, are you a subscriber? Why not consider subscribing and you will know when new items are posted. There is a per post option, a newsletter options that notifies you in a newsletter after every 5 posts and there is Feedblitz which sends a notification once a day (and only if something was posted). Consider having the Big Dog’s posts delivered to your mailbox and you can select those you think are worth the read.

Our Democratic Leadership Could Learn from Albania
– Posted by Big Dog

President Bush was in Albania where he was greeted by enthusiastic crowds
who love him and his stance on independence for that country. They look
at him as a friend and they admire the US and our way of life. This
interesting item from the piece shows that Albanians get it much more

Jefferson Believes in Gun Ownership, but not for You
– Posted by Big Dog

William Jefferson, that is. Thomas Jefferson believed in the right of all
citizens to own and carry firearms.

This past week has focused on the folly of Paris Hilton and her great jail

Must Keep Pressure On Senate Against Amnesty

The Senate bill that would have made millions of ILLEGALS legal with the

Sharpton is Race Baiting Again
– Posted by Big Dog

Al Sharpton is pretty much a low class race baiting poverty pimp who sees
racism in every aspect of life. Why shouldn’t he? After all, it provides
him with a great source of income and as long as he can extort money while
oppressing his own race, the much the better. I […]

    Glad the upgrade went ok for you. This gives me a little more courage to finish my new site design that I installed on my test blog (I am using WP 2.2 on the test blog but WP 2.13 on my main site.)

    Big Dog something that might be interesting for you to do a post about are the plugins you use here at your site and why. I have been searching for plugins all weekend long for the new site design. Love to hear what you suggest.

    I upgraded to 2.2 during my template change….it went well and thanks for the heads up on the instant upgrade plug in. I’m still having issues with ajaxing, and a few others but I like it so far.

    BD – I’m glad to know it works OK now, but do I may need to call on you for help to do the upgrade, so is that OK?
