This morning I updated my blog to WordPress Version 2. The upgrade was easy, but you do need some basic website management skills, such as FTP and CPanel. The instructions were clear.
I was interested in this version for the improved spam controls and the easy backup option. The spam controls require that you register with WordPress, in order to access their API. I felt that it was worth it, as spam takes a lot of the enjoyment out of blogging.
One last note. I was on Version 1.2 and in the upgrade, lost my theme. I decided to get a fresh theme, so that did not bother me too much. My only caution is that if you want to preserve your theme from Version 1.2, then do your research, on how to do it, prior to upgrading.
