I’m going to try once again to upgrade to WordPress 2.0. Last time I tried this, there were cataclysmic results that threw me into a parallel Earth in which everyone wore eyepatches. I only barely escaped.
The problem is, the little design I have going on here with my legos and my quotes and my photos and what-not are crudely cobbled together from the remains of the “classic” theme. And whereas WordPress 1.5 doesn’t mind it so much, 2.0 shrieked with outrage at my corruption of the fine, fine code. Everything broke.
Since then, I have made strides towards fixing my code so that it won’t break in version 2.0. Ha! Not really, I’ve barely done anything. And when I upgrade, it’s probably going to break again. But the thing is, I don’t know how to fix it beforehand because I don’t know what the problem is! So I need to go ahead and let it break and then repair the damage afterwards.
How does this affect you, the reader? Well, the site’s probably going to look different for a couple of days. So as not to subject you to weirdly arranged text, I’ll just be using a standard, 2.0-approved theme with the site. It’ll look different, but it won’t look awful, which is what I’m expecting my current theme will look like. I’ll then put on my gloves, apply my magnifying goggles, prepare my instruments, and begin banging on anything that looks like it might be wrong until it at least appears to work correctly. Expect the same problem when WordPress 3.0 is released.
I appreciate your patience and assure you that you will be pleased with the results.
UPDATE: Holy cow it worked! I have no explanation for that. So disregard most of the above. I just have some minor issues to fix. Thanks to Kurt for holding my hand through all of this!
