That’s one of my chief guiding principals. If something does the job, go with it until it doesn’t.
So, turns out there was something I wanted to do on this blog that my ole WordPress v1.5 install wouldn’t support, so I’ve just upgraded it to v2.
It went fairly painless. I disabled plugins, copied the directory over to a backup spot, dumped out the database as a backup and hit the upgrade via Fantastico (I use Bluehost which supports it).
After that it was just a matter of seeing what wasn’t there and filling in the blanks by copy/pasting from backup styles and my heavily modified theme.
There’s a couple little things I’ll need to follow up re sxore comments but generally everything seems to be going fine.
Now, on with the show.
