Partial success.

Partial success.

After many hours of frustrating work, the good technical support of BlueHost host and some luck, WE were able to save my previous posts, and the comments. Unfortunately the Tags and Categories I used on prior posts were lost, BUT I know now how to save them for future moves.

American and Proud is back, and on 2.6.

So far 2.6 seems stable. Those of you looking to switch should make sure your server is compatible with the new version.

Some advantages of the new version:

* Word count! Never guess how many words are in your post anymore.
* Image captions, so you can add captions under your images.
* Bulk management of plugins.
* A completely revamped image control to allow for easier inserting, floating, and resizing. It’s now fully integrated with the WYSIWYG.
* Drag-and-drop reordering of Galleries.
* Plugin update notification bubble. Lets you know when a plugin needs to be upgraded.
* Customizable default avatars.
* You can now upload media when in full-screen mode.
* Remote publishing via XML-RPC and APP is now secure (off) by default, but you can turn it on easily through the options screen. (Don’t think I’m going to use this feature but who knows).
* Full SSL support in the core, and the ability to force SSL for security.
* You can now have many thousands of pages or categories with no interface issues.
* Ability to move your wp-config file and wp-content directories to a custom location, for “clean” SVN checkouts.
* Select a range of checkboxes with “shift-click.”
* You can toggle between the Flash uploader (when uploading images or any media objects) and the classic one.
* A number of proactive security enhancements, including cookies and database interactions.
* Stronger better faster versions of TinyMCE, jQuery, and jQuery UI (which were the primary sources of errors in the Beta 3 I’ve tested)
* Version 2.6 fixes approximately 194 bugs.

In addition to this, I like the “Insert Gallery” function of WordPress 2.6 I like to post pictures with posts so this is an added goody.
