Las week the final version of WordPress MU 2.6 was released. I’ve made two diff files this time, one for upgrading from the previous stable release (1.5.1) and one from the RC1:
I’ve just upgraded the blog to WordPress MU 1.5.1. For a couple of days some features may not work as expected, due to plugin incompatibilities, new options, etc.
I’ve made a .diff patch file to make the upgrade process from the release I was using before (1.3.3) a little bit easier. It’s available here in case anyone finds it useful. If you may find any problems after the upgrade, be sure to disable and remove all plugins, specially from the mu-plugins folder, and proceed to install them one by one.
One thing I always missed in WordPress is the ability to select the size of the thumbnail that’s generated every time you upload a picture to your blog. The default size is quite small, sometimes you may want it, for example, to be as wide as the page, without needing to scale the original pic down in HTML with width=”xx”.
I’ve found today the imagesControlSize plugin by aNieto2k, that allows you to select the thumbnail’s width when uploading an image (the height is calculated automatically, maintaining the aspect ratio). Works great.
