We’ll I just upgraded my WordPress installation from 2.0.4 to 2.0.5 and it was very easy and without any problems. This is something I’ve come to expect from this program, everything is done right and made as simple as possible. I definitely recommend the software.
So I haven’t posted anything in a while. I’ve been busy. I have spent several weeks working on Mambo, trying to make a site similar to myfamily.com, but I think I have pretty much given up at this point. It just doesn’t have everything I need. I also tried Joomla, a split off of Mambo, and although it appears that it will be a better program in the long wrong, there’s nothing more there then what I have already been fighting with. As always the biggest problem with Open Source software is the lack of documentation. Unfortunately, there are more programmers then writers out there apparently.
I’ve also been keeping up with a website for my son with pictures from his birth. The site has been completely manual, creating each page every time I posted new pictures. Consequently, only I could update the site, which just made it harder on me since my wife would love to be able to update it. So I installed WordPress and we use that to upload and show off our pictures. So much easier! Now to find a good template…. :)
