WordPress 2.9.2 Released

CONNECT WITH HBB ON SOCIAL MEDIA

On 5th January, WordPress released 2.9.1 version and now it’s time to upgrade. It is available for download at the official WordPress site.

Any idea why this upgrade is for?

WP 2.9.2As quoted on the WordPress blog, the previous version 2.9.1 allows logged in users to read trashed blog posts that belong to other authors. That means your personal crush to professional blueprint might be seen by your colleagues and blogging partner. That’s too risky right?

And I also came across this quote,

“Thomas Mackenzie alerted us to a problem where logged in users can peek at trashed posts belonging to other authors. If you have untrusted users signed up on your blog and sensitive posts in the trash, you should upgrade to 2.9.2.”

I recommend all my readers to upgrade quickly. It has lot of security fixes too.

      WordPress is a content management system that was used mostly for blogs in the past few years. The popularity of WordPress comes from blogs. People moved their blogs from blog hosting services like blogspot to self hosted wordpress blogs for the features that was offered. Blogspot was not open to plugins or to third party themes. The customization is very bad and you can only post and change the basic look of your blog.

      As we (at TechChunks.com) don’t share the login credentials with our guest bloggers, I’ve chose not to upgrade to WP 2.9.2 and actually waiting for 2.9.3!

      Thomas Mackenzie alerted us to a problem where logged in users can peek at trashed posts belonging to other authors. If you have untrusted users signed up on your blog and sensitive posts in the trash, you should upgrade to 2.9.2. As always, you can visit the Tools->Upgrade menu to upgrade.

      I recently Started blogging and when I install WordPress my hosting installed 2.9.1 instead of 2.9.2.
      And I had to manually upgrade the wordpress to the latest version. though it was not tough though initially I thought of it as quite scary.

      Sometimes, I feel that WP have upgrades so often that I can’t keep up anymore! But if I don’t upgrade, I don’t know what I may be missing, right? 🙁

      • S.Pradeep Kumar

      • Hami

        dude never ever upgrade or make any changes to your server side blog installations without doing a backup.

        But for that read tutorials online, from WordPress Help and from the Pro users as well.

        Even if you think you know a lot after so much reading.. try to setup and local wordpress installations and try to import/export/etc to your that local setup 😀

      • Anish K.S
