Upgrade to WordPress 2.7 Coming This Week

As some of you might have guessed, Folaji.com uses the WordPress Blog platform as a background engine for all its content.  This platform is free, easy to use, requires little maintenance, and provides great functionality.

Now, about three weeks ago a new version of WordPress was launched: WordPress 2.7.  This new version contains cool new functions and features that I honestly can’t wait to try out, and I’m hoping to be able to take advantage of my holiday vacations to install it before the end of the week.  This means that the site may be unavailable or broken for most of Thursday and Friday (I expect to be drunk Wednesday :D ). 

Although the initial installation should be a breeze, I have done many customizations to the site, updating plugins and reinstalling customizations should take up the bulk of the work.  Content shouldn’t be affected, which is good, although I’m not 100% of the availability of the forums plugin (the minimum requirements demand an update to the site’s database engine, although I’ll try to set it up without…!)

So, hopefully, by the end of the week we’ll have a fresh new WordPress engine running the site.  In the meantime, I apologize for any issues during the update!
