Learn from my stupidity – don’t upgrade less than a month from BlogHer


When I realized that my blog had been eating comments and I couldn’t figure out the reason, I thought:
“Well it is far beyond time to upgrade my WordPress anyway.”

The upgrade did not play nice with my old customized theme and I have been pulling my hair out for the last two weeks trying to clean it all up.

I’ve now got something manageable but my archives are gone (I’ve got a back up but I can’t see them) as are all the comments (The few I had were precious to me).

I’ve given up trying to make it all perfect before BlogHer and I’m just going to go forward and continue to try to fill in the history.

Thanks to the DePo Skinny Theme I’ve made it look the way I want.

I’m sure I haven’t found all the wonky-ness there is to find, so if you come across crazy errors or 404s please let me know at cheeky[dot]attitude[at]gmail[dot]com.
