there was a new version of wordpress out, so i (finally) upgraded. the layout of the admin area completely changed; i already heard about that before. i don’t know if it’s better or worse than the old one, but i stumbled over one thing which is really annoying: in case you write private articles (like me) to ensure that in case the role scoper plugin stops working (or is simply disabled due to upgrades), nobody can see the private stuff (instead of everyone), you will find out that the new version of wordpress automatically publishes articles as soon as the visibility is set to private! this is pretty annoying, as i usually do that as one of the first things before writing (most of) the post itself.
another thing which got worse is the size of the tags field (for the simple tags plugin), which now resides in the right (narrow) column. before, it was prominently seated directly below the area where the post content itself is written (which is rather wide). as i often use a long list of tags, this makes things more confusing than they have to be.

And this post reminded me that you have private articles and I have to log on to read them. :-)

hehe :) i know that very well — if there isn’t something new regulary enough (so you have to check every few days anyway) you quickly forget about stuff. it would be really good if blogs and rss would support different users and user-specific content which is only available on authentification.
if ruby ever ends up having a decent unicode/utf-8 support, i might start hacking a better blog system in there (i will never use php again), or at least rewrite blackness. well, if i ever find time for that…
