No plugins but some talking around WP 3.5 upgrading and what I found.

I waited a few days this time to start the upgrade process and I am glad I did since from the time 3.5 dropped to when I started updating several of my most used plugins were updated and I have one plugin I raved about a couple of shows back SlideDeck seems to have some issue with 3.5 so on that site I had to revert back to 3.4.

You have to love WordPress for ease of reverting back a version when all you have to do is re upload the previous version files and it drops back.

Talk about having to revise my top 10 plugins seems that a couple of my fav top ten plugins have been incorporated into others and one has aged beyond showing in repository meaning they are over 2 years old, this is interesting to note a way that Automatic is trying to prevent people from using older plugins..

My specialty is helping people help themselves. I get their WordPress website up and running after a catastrophe such as being hacked or a plugin malfunction. My focus is on fixing the problem rather than scrapping the site and rebuilding it from the bottom up. Although this may be tempting to do, the costs associated with this are much more than you may think. The loss of time spent on the site, posts, data and images that may have been forgotten or no longer accessible. With a bit of time I can get your site cleaned up, functioning, and re-establish its presence on the web.


Moving forward..
