  1. Nice, but are scheduled posts possible in this release already? That’s quite an essential feature that was said to have issues before.

  2. Is there a way of disabling the built in sidebar widgets? My theme doesn’t like it. My dynamic sidebar no longer works.

    I can’t reactivate the old sidebar widgets plugin.

  3. The bit that allows you to upload pictures and place them into the edit window seems to have disappeared.

    It it just my installation?

  4. Prolly OT, but how long after 2.2 goes GA will WP-MU get the code folded in. I ask because I have an MU project imminent, and I can hold off if necessary.


  5. And I place my question once more, which remains unanswered each and every time: are we going to have to fight our way through new themes, or will the themes from previous versions work this time?

    I asked this on the last post for 2.2, I asked it on the postings for 2.1 and I daresay I’ll be asking it for the 2.3 version when it comes. But the answers ….

  6. I read on Dougal Campbell’s blog that the page preview would no longer appear at the bottom…substituted for a page preview button (to open a new window) for quicker page loads? I could get used to that.

  7. I upgraded my blog and all was just fine and then… ohhh no, looks like sidebar widgets plugin don’t works anymore 🙁

  8. I tried this version and there seems to be an issue with “Restore Original Header” button under the Custom Image Header.
    When you click on that button, it throws up an error like “Cannot modify header information – headers already sent by (output started at path\wp-admin\admin-header.php:16) in path\wp-includes\functions.php on line 1348”

    Please see if you happen to reproduce it.


  9. Sadish, this should fix restore original header.

    LadyMoon, make sure you copy over wp-includes/widgets.php and not wp-admin/widgets.php.

  10. Hopefully this will have scheduled posts and something built in that allows you to easily change the order of the categories in the blogroll as they are listed on the page. I can’t seem to get the php to work to do that.
