Upgraded WordPress

I’ve finally gotten around to updating my wordpress install, and I’m going whole hog with SVN checkout. Everything went extremely smoothly aside from a weird configuration file issue. Used instructions here. Now that I’m above 2.3 I’m also going to start using tags. This is coolness.

I’ve also started using markdown. Not for any real reason, but just because it seems like the geeky thing to do.

I’ve updated my markup macros in Marsedit to reflect markdown syntax. Knowing that Jaikut probably has a google alert set up on Marsedit and his name, I’ll just put in a feature request here for him to include the option to switch the feature between markdown, texttile, html or whatever else the kids are using these days.

I’ve also gotten with the times and switched on the WordPress stats plugin. I tried to get Popularity Contest to work, but I got no love. Not that I tried all that hard though.

Aside: I love the Decemberists, “The Crane Wife” It’s just teh awesome.

Update: I had to replace the plugin I was using for my asides category. I chose this one, which seems to work reasonably well. But for some strange reason, despite supposedly having support for it, it won’t render my asides with markdown which makes me sad. So now I have to figure something else out.
