I sat down to the computer tonight to take care of some quick tasks. What a cool surprise in that one of by blog run projects, the NMC Virtual Worlds site got included in a list of “Truly Unique and Outstanding Blogs” (Ouch, sounds a bit like a 5% Point thang).
Taking a peek at the site to make sure it was okay, I was surprised to see the public one was running WP 2.0.6 as I thought I had done a 2.1 upgrade… well I had done it on my local test machine, but never got to updating the main site. And a good thing I dawdled since my local copy was the dangerous 2.1.1 version.
And than I got fuzzy on the template changes I had to wrangle due to a few database changes in the new code. And I forgot my custom function I bury in the wp-includes/functions.php (I know, bad form). Then I realized a few of my custom database queries were pulling weird things for getting all of the pages, as I was also getting artifacts for the uploaded images (had to add a “AND post_type=’page'” into my SQL).
Now to make up for lost time…. what should I do?
