Blog Updated to WordPress v4.7

A quick note to say I just finished updating my blog to WordPress v4.7 which contained a number of behind the scenes changes. As always, I backed up my files and database first. The update seems to have gone smooth and this is a test post to make sure everything else on this side is still working.

An update of the Twenty Twelve theme that I use was also available. I used WinDiff to compare the current 2.2 version with the previous one and determined there was nothing I needed to do with my child theme. They also introduced a new Twenty Seventeen default theme which I might have a look at later. The update doesn’t install it. You have to install is separately, which I think is the correct approach. :)

Galleries Updated to Zenphoto v1.4.13

Updated both of my galleries (mine, Mysstie’s) to Zenphoto v1.4.13. Followed their upgrade instructions and backed up the themes and zp-core directories as well as the database before copying over the new files.  I then used Windiff and code comparisons in PSPad to integrate any new changes in the default Garland theme into my custom Garland theme. The gallery.php and themeoptions.php files were the only modified files in this version from the previous.  So far everything seems to work great! :)

Blog Updated to WordPress v4.6

Just finished updating my blog to WordPress v4.6 which contained numerous enhancements and bug fixes. As always, I backed up my files and database first. The update seems to have gone smooth and this is a test post to make sure everything else on this side is still working. :)

Oh, one thing I did notice is that creating embeds of my own blog actually works now.

Been watching a lot of the Olympics. Go Team USA!!!
