Updated wordpress

I just updated my wordpress installation from the 2.0 branch to the ‘new’ 2.5.1 version. So for the time being it will look a bit bland and boring, until I get time to find/make a new theme.

It seems that all the posts and comments migrated correctly, the permalinks seem to work, and most images and media files have been taken along. If there are any broken links or you find any issues, please report them as comments to this posting.

Update may 19: Switched to a different theme, don’t know how long I’ll keep this one, but it looks a lot nicer then the default, and it is different from default, so that’s good 😉

Update may 20: Added a Fring-me sidebar widget, you can now see if my phone is online, and if it is, chat (free) with me over my phone/fring.
Fixed the audio-files/flash-audio-player

SpamKarma2

Due to the Akismet advisory that was released today I had to disabled it. I installed SpamKarma2 as a replacement spam-filter (until akismet is fixed).

So far I’m really impressed by SpamKarma2. Installation is a breeze (unzip, done) and it already caugt a fair number of spams without blocking any legitimate comments. It also includes captcha‘s when it isn’t certain about a comment and checks if people actually visited the comment page and how long then spent there before submitting.

You can even see how much spam was eaten at the bottom of the blog, at the time of writing this post it’s at 13 🙂

Update: Akismet fixed, and re-enabled, now working besides SpamKarma2
