    Default Wordpress 2.7 Issues

    I'm wondering if any of you are having issues with wordpress 2.7. Currently on one of my blogs I'm having a problem uploading images. I am able to upload the image but when clicking on insert into post the screen goes blank.

    It also does this when adding an image from another program like flickr.

    Well I just figured out my answer but hopefully this might help someone else.

    What worked for me was deactivating a plugin, testing, then reactivating. Thankfully this is a new blog and there weren't very many plugins. It was a real estate plugin that was causing image failure.

    Good to know it was a plugin. I haven't seen or heard about that issue being in WP 2.7 itself. Sometimes plugins do conflict with other plugins or WordPress itself. Sounds like in your case something went wrong during the original activation.

    I have had the occasional issue with one plugin causing conflict with another. Usually it means having to decide which plugin I want more and then deactivating the other.

    Glad you got this sorted out.

    Yes. There are a lot of plug ins that I had been used to using, that were not compatible with 2.7, and many that it seems just said screw it and stopped providing support.

    For some it's just a matter of waiting for the developer to have time to update. For others the developer will have stopped supporting the plugin, though it's still possible someone else will pick it up and start maintaining it. If the functionality of the plugin was popular enough someone will end up supporting the plugin or developing a new one that does mostly the same thing.

    I also read some people were having problems because of the template they were using. I did find a website listing templates that work best with 2.7 but I really don't think the majority that have upgraded have seen many problems.

    I have taken my 3 blogs to 2.7 and have had little problems, well actually none.

    I also have started work on another information site which is going to run on wordpress and had no issue there as yet either, even with trying a few different things on themes and plugins.

    Jody, most themes should work fine, but it's possible that some used old code that WordPress is no longer supporting. I don't know all the changes that happened with 2.7, but it's possible that some very old WordPress tags no longer work. Recent themes should have been using newer code for awhile now.

    There is a functions.php file in themes, which is essentially a way for theme developers to add plugin functionality directly into the theme. Most are left as the default functions.php, but more and more themes will be adding some custom code to it.

    I have had one problem with one theme I use. The archive calendar in the sidebar will not work, it seems like it is way to wide or something.

    Would anyone happen to know where the code for the width of the calendar is located. I have looked everywhere.
