  1. I’m really looking forward to testing out this Beta. I’m an avid user of Opera, and if I can use WordPress without firing up FireFox, I’d absolutely love it 😀

    Thanks for all the work you and the team have put into this!


  2. If you have time, I would like to know from you why since 2.5 a giant number of tickets on trac are assigned to the next version of wordpress?

  4. Hello just installed wordpress 2.6 beta 2, over wordpress 2.5.1.

    Done the DB upgrade whituout problem, but now I CAN’T login with admin username.

    WP dosn’t accept my password. I have try also with a fresh password, generated by WP, without result 😦

    Any hints?


  5. This looks like being a significant improvement over 2.5, with some really good features and much-needed fixes. Thanks for listening to the user feedback and responding in this next release.


  6. Looks great – especially with the post/page revision build right into the core system.

    Constructive feedback: I am having difficulties using any of the Advanced Options sub menus like “Page parent” on the manage pages interface – it just does not seem to react anymore.

    Page revisions is impossible to collapse as well… maybe there is a connection?

    (Similar behavior in FF3 and Safari)


  7. Ale:

    you need to clear the cookies before trying to login…

    Does the “press this” uploads photos to any of you?? To me it doesnt… i wonder if it’s just de RC1 or it’s gonna be like that…


  8. @Ale I wouldn’t advise you to overwrite stable releases with betas.
    Try emailing a ‘lost password’ form to your email address. If that doesn’t work, try an MD5 Hasher. Type in your password, and paste it into the user_pass field in the users table of your database.
