WP 2.2.1 is out

June 22, 2007

Before I could upgrade all my sites to 2.2 latest upgrade to 2.2.1 is out.    I found at my site here everything is perfect there is no character display problem.   However at my main blog there are some funny character, e.g. apostrophe has turned into funny characters!    I didn’t do anything at the config.php file to fix that since I have no ftp access from here.    I just edited the post again and it turned OK now, just wondered why?

Upgrade to WP2.2

June 21, 2007

I have just upgraded sites that I maintain including this one to 2.2, that one for sister Karen has no problem.    The one for my Professor was having problem displaying Chinese.    The solution is here.

My main blog doesn’t use Chinese except for one category name so I don’t bother doing anything with it.    I’ll wait and see for a while.
