Site upgraded to WordPress 2.1 “Ella”

Just a quick note: this site was upgraded from WordPress version 2.0.4 to the latest version 2.1 “Ella” today. The most important features that prompted me to make this upgrade are

  • Security fixes.
  • Autosave makes sure you never lose a post again.
  • Our new tabbed editor allows you to switch between WYSIWYG and code editing instantly while writing a post.
  • The lossless XML import and export makes it easy for you to move your content between WordPress blogs.
  • Our completely redone visual editor also now includes spell checking.

The upgrade went fairly smoothly, other than the warning messages about the database error with the AquaFluid theme. That went away when I upgraded the theme from 1.0 to the 1.5 version.

Blog updates

I updated my blog theme from the “Very Plain Text 2.0” to the “Aquafluid 1.0″ theme on Oct 16, 2006. Hopefully everything looks fresher.

A Google search function was added for performing search on

  1. Indextown (this site),
  2. Morningstar’s forums (Vanguard Diehards forum),
  3. Www (the entire web).

I also created two content pages :

  1. Investing Resources – which is a library of various online resources related to investing.
  2. Popular Posts – which contains a list of the most popular posts with readers.

I hope these will be useful. As always, thanks for reading.
