Why You Shouldn’t Upgrade To Wordpress 2.8.2
Every Wordpress user knows how important it is to update a blog to the latest version of Wordpress to avoid being hacked by some authorised users. However, if you are using the following plugins, I would advise you to stick with it until a stable version of Wordpress is release in the future because of the following glitches :
1. Slow Speed When Creating Sitemap
It took 16 seconds to create a sitemap using the Google XML sitemap plugin. Unless Wordpress 2.6, it only requires 5 seconds to notify Google, Yahoo, Bing and Ask.
2. Couldn’t Upload Image Using Flash Uploader
I can only upload images using browser uploader. Not sure if anyone is facing the problem though.
3. WP emoticons showed up in comments section
Why would they show up above my comments when they are supposed to be in the new post section??
If you have not upgrade to Wordpress 2.8.2 please be patient and wait until further release of Wordpress. You will be better off with the one that you are using right now.
I have upgraded to latest Wordpress 2.8.2 So far no problem for me except it didn’t show wordpress version when view source Need to check the plugin compatibility before upgrade. For the image uploader, I have encounter this problem, it can be other plugin which causes the error. This plugin could be related to image or photo. Good luck!
XML sitemap is probably the only plugin that can automatically generate sitemap. I am so frustrated when it takes such a long time to notify those search engines. Luckily I can still upload images using browser uploader
