OK, so far so good with our upgrade to WordPress 2.7. No fatal PHP errors or major incompatibility catastrophes. This is a good thing.
But we haven’t yet upgraded the theme which is probably why your saying, “What’s the big difference?” But with so many hard-coded theme template modifications, I may not upgrade Mandigo anytime soon. The new version does have some pretty cool new features, but I think I’ll just quit while I’m ahead here and get to work on Jerry’s site to see what can of worms I can open with the Discussion Forums upgrade.
You can consider this post just a test drive of the new WordPress 2.7 interface, which I must admit is pretty sweet. And a test of our NextGen gallery and TrackPing plugins.
The only other change you may notice – if you ever used it – is the missing “Email this Post” feature. Well, the WP-Email plugin didn’t play nice after the upgrade so we’ve eliminated it. No worries though, the new Sociable plugin lets you email this post using the first “Share This Link” icon below.
Please let us know if you experience any new technical difficulties, or if your subscription feed no longer works. But then, I guess you’d never get this if it didn’t! 😉

Wow, that is quite a big jump. Surprising that it went so well. Great to hear.
I figured that I would wait a little bit before I upgrade. I don’t usually run bleeding edge stuff. I am a liar, I have a couple of release candidate plugin versions running.
ugh, 4.0 is out? I just installed Version 3.1.4!
Sorry to hear that you had trouble with it.
By all means no, the new forum features rock. Just had some rather serious database issues upgrading from 2.1 … it’s supposedly much less painful upgrading from SimpleForum 3.x.
Congrats on the upgrade. Glad it went well. What version did you upgrade from?
Made the leap from WP 2.2.2 to 2.7. Went relatively easy here. Upgrading the tripawd discussion forums to SimplePress 4.0 from 2.1 at he same time, however, has been a different nightmare altogether.
