    If you haven't updated the new version of Word Press, i don't recommend updating. I have seen from other posts that there are a few plug-in problems from the new update.

    For me, the new update disabled statpress and wiped all my stats out.

    That's why there is this thing called a "backup". ;)

    Yes 2.8 isn't a good update I believe. I read reviews before making any critical updates, though I have a backup too :)

    my google sitemap plugin is not working with 2.8

    if I hadn't migrated my hosting it wouldn't be like these. :(

    does anyone know how to downgrade a wordpress blog from 2.8 to 2.7 ???

    this happens often with WP updates. In time the plugin fixes will catch up.

    I didn't have to do anything with my plugins. They were all there and worked.

    disabled my redirect plugin and header coding. I was waving my dick in the wind for 2 days with zero conversions before I figured out what the hell happened.

    No more WP updates for me, if I can avoid them.

    I updated one of my sites "thinking" that it would be smooth and ended up having to do a whole lot of troublshooting and code modifying and all that. I don't even like the interface.

    For the rest of my sites, I'm keeping it at 7.1
