  2. Wow, thanks for this info. I have just upgraded mine a while ago.. and now this. I just realized about the browse interface broken in the upload section. This affects pictures uploaded B4 wp2.3

    thanks thanks.

  3. can u add a option that all Old post get Tag automatically thorough their Titles ??

    that would be awesome

  4. On an unrelated issue what is 2.2.3 still doing on Trac? uncompleted? this should be taken off because it might cause confusion.

    Good thing 2.3.1 is in beta, 2.3 is a bit quirky and so I hope these are fixed since one of my blogs is still on 2.2.3 for the time being.

  5. Ah, good deal! Answers to a few issues I’ve been having and explains a great deal. Glad the update will be out soon. Good work all!

  6. I posted this even in the WordPress support forum, and nobody has seen fit to mention it.

    Here’s the title and the post, which refers to a WP bug long ago resolved (but one I never encountered till now):

    #3857 (TinyGoogleSpell fails) — Still Fails for Me!

    Despite the report that this is resolved, following an Apache 2.2.6 update on my dedicated server, I cannot get this feature to run. I get the error described in the bug listed above [on the WordPress site].

    I’m using WP 2.3.

    One more symptom: The SQSidebar plugin, which worked prior to the update, now hangs the page when it’s called.

    Everything else seems to work normally, on all my sites, which includes three MyBB forums and some regular sites.

    Any help here?

    I’m using cPanel 11’s Easy::Apache feature, and it’s possible I left something out, but I’m going to need solid hand-holding to figure this out.

    Basic installation info:

    Apache/2.2.6 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.2.6 OpenSSL/0.9.7a mod_bwlimited/1.4 mod_auth_passthrough/2.1 FrontPage/
