This blog has been running on a customized 1.5–based WordPress for a few years now. As a result of my modifications, it has slowly showed its age and weaknesses in the backend. I’ve been unable to take advantage of the better plugins out there, though thinking about it now I still had all the features I needed in a functionally sound weblog publishing app.
A few weeks ago, I decided to finally move back to the latest version of WordPress and stop worrying about it. It took me a day to make my theme 2.x–compatible as I decided to wipe away some of the unnecessary code I already have forgotten about. I realized I’ve been using it even before WordPress had support for themes and pages. I overlooked one detail though, I forgot to revert my comment form and prevented new comments for a few days or so. The actual WordPress upgrade took all of five minutes.
Now all I need is a content upgrade.
