WP-Blog and WordPress 3.1

WordPress 3.1 just saw the light of day. This is yet another major update to WordPress that adds a lot of new functionality.

But that is not why you are reading this post I guess. So i’m going to skip right to the point instead…

WP-Blog works fine with WordPress 3.1 :)

WP-Blog and WordPress 3.0

During the night (CET) WordPress 3.0 saw the light of day. This is a major update to WordPress that adds a lot of new functionality along with a much improved administration backend.

I’m not going to go into details about all the changes in WordPress 3.0. You can read about the release here. Or if you want to skip directly to the juicy new features you can go here.

But what about WP-Blog?
WP-Blog works fine with WordPress 3.0. There may be minor things that needs adjustments but WordPress 3.0 does not completely break WP-Blog :)

What about the inclusion of WordPress MU into WordPress 3.0?
WP-Blog did not work with WordPress MU before because it works in a very different way. I haven’t had time to look into this in WordPress 3.0 yet but I don’t expect this to have changed. So if you want to use WP-Blog you cannot use the MU feature in WordPress 3.0.

Problems?
If you discover something that is not working properly please contact me and don’t forget to include a link to your WP-Blog page so I can take a look at your page.

Backing up your blog with WP-DBManager

Working backups is a must in our modern life. And backups should be easy to make too.

But most of us that have a self-hosted WordPress blog doesn’t think of backups. Or we may think of it but we usually look in the control panel of our webserver only to discover that taking backups is way to difficult.

If your blog is hosted with a big hosting provider they probably have some kind of backup system. But don’t bet on it. They may have backups but maybe not for all of your stuff. And/Or maybe not as often as you would like, etc. It might also be difficult to restore such a backup in case something happens since you are not in control of your backup.

The most important part to backup is your database. Never mind the actual WordPress software or all the third-party plugins. They can easily be downloaded and installed again. But if you loose your database then all that really matters is lost.

So what can be done about this…

WP-DBManager, a simple, yet powerful, WordPress plugin that lets you set-and-forget backups of your WordPress database. Using this tool, and an email account that allows large emails you can have your blog backed up in no time.

Here is a tutorial on how to install and activate this plugin so that your database is backed up:
The Perfect Hands-Free Database Backup

PS: As a sideeffect you will almost get a phpMyAdmin tool inside WordPress using this plugin. DS.
