Upgrade to Wordpress 2.0.4

Upgrade to Wordpress 2.0.4

Of course, I'm not talking about upgrading this blog, since this blog uses Blogger. I'm talking about upgrading my Wordpress-based blogs, such as Minda Indra, Planet Indra and Planet Singapura. Wordpress version 2.0.4 has actually been released more than a month ago, but I only managed to find the time to do the upgrade last week. Furthermore, now there are 3 blogs I need to upgrade.

But fortunately, the upgrade process was quite easy, in fact, it's much easier than the upgrade from 2.0.2 to 2.0.3. There's a detailed specific instruction on how to upgrade from 2.0.3 to 2.0.4, so it's much easier. We just need to make a backup of these folders: wp-admin, wp-includes, wp-content/themes/default, as well as all the files on the Wordpress root directory, except wp-config.php file, and then replace all the folders and files with the ones from the new version.

Comments on Planet Indra

It seems that some of my Planet Indra visitors were misled by the "Comments Off" signs at the end of each post, causing them to think that they are not able to add comments to my posts. It's actually not true. Planet Indra is an aggregate/syndication of all my blogs and visitors can actually visit the original post on its source blog and add comments there. To avoid such confusion, I have re-enabled the comments on Planet Indra, and when you click the "Comments" link at the end of every post, you will be redirected to the post on its source blog and you can add comments there.


I also have added the feature from IP2Phrase.Com on all my blogs. With this feature, all my visitors can see from which IP address, country and ISP they are accessing from. This feature is provided by Hexasoft Development Sdn Bhd, a research and development company based in Penang, Malaysia. The installation is also very fast and painless, you just need to add one javascript line into your blog or website's template. More information can be found here.

Indo-Sing Blog Has Moved

Indo-Sing Blog, a blog (in Indonesian language) dedicated to the Indonesian community in Singapore, has moved to a new address. Thanks to Polar Bear, now Indo-Sing blog has a new home under the indo-sing.org official domain.

This blog still uses Wordpress, and is hosted together with Forum Indo-Sing and Wiki Indo-Sing. Its contents, as well as all its comments, have been migrated to the new place, thanks to Polar Bear and Renatha. As a result of this, the old Indo-Sing blog at Blogsome has been officially closed.
