If you visited earlier you might have seen a screen blank with an error message. I took the plunge and upgrade WordPress from 1.5 to 2.0.2. Fingers (and toes) crossed, it all seems to be working well.
I can’t recommend the following tutorials highly enough, I followed them step by step and apart from a few hair-raising moments (mea culpa, I missed a paragraph), it all went swimmingly.
One small problem and I’ve scratched my head but can’t figure it out yet – why the background image (middle.gif) doesn’t display since the upgrade.
Here’s the css:
background: transparent url(images/middle.gif) repeat-y top center;
margin: 0 auto;
Any ideas oh wise ones?
Before I got the chance to put that excellent advice from Gordon and Lyle into practice, I found that just saving the .css file and uploading it over the “old” (but identical) file was enough to solve the problem.
So if you’ve upgraded to WordPress 2.0.2 and find that some of your css styling isn’t working any more, it’s worth trying that before giving yourself more grey hairs fixing a (possibly) unfixable problem.
