Just updated WordPress and plugins

I spent a good few hours last week updating my website from WordPress 2.1 to WordPress 2.3.1, the only bad thing about that, was that a fair number of my plugins were either out of date or no longer in active development. Here’s a list of some of the software that I upgraded.

  1. Lazyest Gallery is no longer being developed (basically left to die a death) so I decided on NextGen Gallery
  2. I upgraded Google XML site generator from 2.7.1 to 3.7.1 with no problems.
  3. I moved from WP lightbox 2 version 0.6.3 to Lightbox 2 WP plugin version 1.7 because the WP lightbox 2 plugin stopped working after I upgraded WordPress to version 2.3.1
  4. I’ve decided to disable Lightbox 2 WP plugin and give Shutter Reloaded a test run instead, the main selling point with this plugin is that I won’t have to go through all my posts and add the “rel=lightbox” html tag to all the images to get the lightbox plugin to work. Might switch back at some point if a problem arises, never say never

I’ll probably spend a little more time this week moving photos around on the website, and maybe tidying up the way it looks, hey maybe even a new theme 🙂
