Unfolding Neurons will be down this weekend

Source: WikipediaApparently my webhost is opening a brand new datacenter and is moving all my websites onto the new servers there. I’ve been told that the move will begin at midnight on Friday, March 28th (i.e. early Saturday morning) and so everything will go black for up to 48 hours.

So if you get this before things happen you’ll know not to panic when you can’t access UnfoldingNeurons.com 😉 (not that anybody would panic anyway…)

Organize Series 2.0 Final Release

It’s out. I decided I’m happy enough with the current codebase to put a final release of Organize Series 2.0 out. Thanks to all the people who gave feedback on the Organize Series 2.0 Beta forums:

With their help I was able to address some things I might have missed. As it is, there is still the possibility that I may miss some bugs so if you come across any please post here.

With the release of Organize Series 2.0 I’ve decided to stop supporting all earlier versions (I just don’t have the time). I’ve completely rewritten the Organize Series Page and have also started a Organize Series Usage Tips series.

Oh, one more thing…OrgSeries 2.0 is all spiffed and ready for WordPress 2.5 too 🙂

Happy Easter!

Be careful using the Automatic Plugins upgrades in WordPress 2.5

Well the long awaited sequel to the 2.3 branch of WordPress is almost out the door. Release Candidate 1 of WordPress 2.5 is now available for those brave souls who want to do some testing before the final release. WordPress 2.5 has been covered pretty well on the blogosphere so I’m not going to go into all the details here but I did want to write a post about one new feature that could cause some problems with users upgrading.

WordPress 2.5 comes with the ability for blog owners to upgrade their plugins automatically via the Plugins Page. “Automatic Upgrade” means that instead of having to download the plugin and then ftp it to your server, you can simply click the “upgrade automatically” link and WordPress will take care of everything for you. (click the picture below to see what it looks like)

Example of Upgrade Automatically Link

It’s a great idea and definitely one that will work okay with most basic plugins but here’s the problem(s):

Organize Series 2.0 Beta 1 Release

UPDATE: Organize Series 2.0 Final has been released. You can get it here.

Finally, I’ve reached the point where I can release a beta version of the Organize Series 2.0! It’s been a long time in the making and I’m glad to finally have reached this stage. UnfoldingNeurons.com is now running on WordPress 2.3.3 and I’ve installed OrgSeries and all seems well.

I’m still going through the code and cleaning it up, adding internal documentation, and structuring the files so it’s a bit more intuitive. I also want to get OrgSeries 2.0 ready for WordPress 2.5 before I do a final release. However, since I know so many people have been patiently waiting for me to get this version out the door I decided to release the Beta for those brave souls who want to give it a go. REMEMBER though, that this is a BETA release and I take no responsibility for any problems you may have with it. I’m hoping that releasing this BETA will also lead to some great feedback from users, helping me to improve it in time for the big release.
