If you get this message when upgrading WordPress, no worries.
WordPress put a .maintenance file on your blog’s root directory when you use automatic upgrade. This was meant to protect your blog visitors to see the ugly face of your blog while upgrading. However, when the upgrade fail (happen at times), WordPress don’t delete the files automatically.

Lifestream is a very cool WordPress plugins. It shows your’ lifestream’ throughout your social networking account feeds.
Weirdly enough, i experience this several times, the plugin gone after updates. And if you use WordPress 2.7. and up, there’s a chance that, if your not techie enough to know about PHP/MySql like me, you’re going to try re-install the plugin through WordPress’ own automatic installs.

WordPress 2.7 currently running in my local server is Beta 3 and i’m starting to enjoy the version more. I missed the RC1 but now WordPress Development blog had announced that 2.7 release candidate two is ready for download.
I’m pretty excited to see the visual design of WordPress 2.7. admin, although, learnt from the last several major upgrades, I will need to wait before upgrading all my WordPress powered sites. This blog is usually where I do the upgrade first and find what works and what not in the new version. Heck, with a small tactic even inexperienced WP developer like me can make it simple to do upgrades. So, stop whinning on upgrades 😀
I had a bad headache on one of my client site.
They manage professional surf competitions and a lot of those events are multi days events. So they often updating their site every day on certain event and since the post in WordPress is chronological, their homepage was full of same events. Somehow, they’ll need to have one post for the whole event report but not taking all the spaces in their homepage for 1st, 2nd etc day report of the event.
My current webhost is just another overselling web hosting company. It’s dissapointing when you get your promises at pre-sign up then in the end find your site hosted with almost other 1.000 websites!!! Downtimes are like having meals. Sometimes 3 times a day, sometimes it’s more. It’s just a true endless dissapointment for the past 9 months.
If you ever search through WordPress’ Plugin Repository you’ll know the search suck. It’s easier to search from Google than from the Wp’s extend site.

WordPress team has just announced that their support team will be available to assist users 24/7 (mind you their hosted solution is a free service). I remember when i started to use WordPress.com, i was confused and emailed the support complaining about their service. In about 4 hours, one of their staff name Mark immediately replied to my complaints. That was the time when their service can only serve users for 5 days a week.
