WordPress 3.0 version released

A quick post to let you guys know that WordPress 3.0 was just released today. I went ahead and upgraded this site and am in the process of testing it out. If you’re a subscriber or a past client, you probably received some bogus subscription emails. I was testing out the new menu creation feature and for some reason 3.0 thought it was a new post and sent out the email update. Weird! According to this page, it’s considered a post type, but I have no idea why. So just be aware that if you have a subscription plugin and want to play around with the new menu feature, an email will be sent out to your subscribers. I’m going to email the developers of the Subscribe2 plugin to see what they can do about turning that off.
REMINDER: If you want to upgrade to 3.0, be sure to backup your database first. Many of you might already have the WordPress Database Backup installed, so just go ahead and run it before clicking on the upgrade button. You may want to wait until you hear back from me on my thoughts of the upgrade.Learn More
Changes…they are a-comin’

Wow, only a couple weeks left of the year! I’m sure everyone is frantically rushing around finishing up print orders, delivering to clients, and of course doing their personal holiday shopping. The inevitable is in sight though; a New Year is coming and a lot of us will be asking ourselves how we can freshen up and improve our presentation to clients.
Well here are a couple ideas for you to chew on while you’re also munching on those Christmas cookies:
- Pricing structure for custom blogs and blogsites will change in January, so from now until January 5th, they are on sale for $350 and $450 respectively. Save $50 off the old pricing!
- Custom horizontal layouts are coming soon! The design is at the testing stage right now, but if you want to volunteer to be a guinea pig (your current layout would be intact), please contact me. Get a sneak peek of it here: http://blogsforphotogs.com/horizontal
- Flash logos coming soon! I am currently in talks with a graphic designer who is interested in collaborating with me to provide this service. Prices for flash animated logos start at $300.
- Lastly, but not least, WordPress has release version 2.9, with some outstanding new features. I will be test driving the new version this week hopefully, so if you’re in dire need of an upgrade, I would start thinking about this right away.
Hopefully that will get your creative juices flowing and get you thinking about changes you want to make for your business’ internet presence. Cheers and Happy Holidays to all!Learn More
WordPress 2.8.6 released

I’m going to try and post any time there is a new WordPress version release, just so I can keep you guys up to date and on the ball when it comes to making sure your blogs run smoothly.
Here is what WordPress.org says about 2.8.6:
“2.8.6 fixes two security problems that can be exploited by registered, logged in users who have posting privileges. If you have untrusted authors on your blog, upgrading to 2.8.6 is recommended.”
This may or may not apply to most of you, but it’s better to be safe than sorry, especially with all the hacking going on these days. I know some of you (yeah, you know who you are) are in dire need of an upgrade and probably don’t know it. The best way to find the version you have installed is to look at the footer section of your admin panel. If you have anything below 2.7, you really need to upgrade but may not have the built-in upgrade utility or plugin to do so. If that’s the case, you can request an upgrade from me.Learn More
