WordPress 3.0 – Have You Upgraded Yet?

The first stable release of WordPress 3.0 launched on June 17th.  Have you upgraded yet?

The new version of WordPress offers some cool new features like a new default theme (Twenty Ten), which has been getting a lot of buzz.  Also, the new multi-user functionality makes it easy for anyone to run multiple WordPress blogs from a single WordPress installation.  I’m sure I’m not the only WordPress user who is happy about that!

So there is no doubt that the new WordPress 3.0 is cool, but are you the type of blogger who jumps in as soon as a new version of WordPress is launched?  Or do you prefer to wait it out a few weeks (or longer) to see what kinds of bugs people experience before you upgrade?

Since upgrading became so easy when WordPress 2.7 came on the scene, even the least tech-savvy blogger can upgrade to the latest and greatest version of WordPress with a couple of clicks of the mouse (although you really should take the time to backup your WordPress database first — just in case).

So which are you — a Nervous Nellie or a Fearless Freddy?  Take the poll below and leave a comment to share your thoughts on upgrading to WordPress 3.0.

  1. I’m going to wait for a while before upgrading. From my experience, every new release – whether it’s WordPress, Microsoft, Firefox, etc. – has bugs. I’d rather wait while they get those kinks ironed out and the plug-ins made compatible.

  2. I’ve been in the computer field for many years and one thing that I’ve definitely learnt is to be patient. If I get the itch to try something really new, I’ll do it with a test system. With the bugs that have been found around themes, I’m sure I’d have at least 100 blogs that would have needed to be restored from backups because of themes issues.


  3. I always wait until all of my important plugins say they are compatible with the newest stable release. I’m still waiting on a couple and have contacted the authors so as soon as I get the go ahead from them I’ll upgrade.
