I’ve updated the site to the latest release of WordPress. 2.8.1 fixes many bug found in 2.8 and I finally was ready for the update. While everything went smoothly, I did have to update my theme a bit to run some of the additional widget area.

Using the old style dynamic_sidebar( 'Utility: Header' ); didn’t work any more, while just replacing the Title of the widget area with the ID fixed this problem: dynamic_sidebar( 'utilityheader' );.

I also came across a major error with one of my plugins. AsideShop just doesn’t work with and version WordPress greater than or equal to 2.8. Hopefully the author will come up with a fix, but since the plugin page only shows the plugin to be compatible with 2.5.1, I doubt it. I may try my luck at this fix.

You’ll notice some posts in full view for the time being, with out the simple “aside” styling.

    Funny enough, I’ve had asideshop installed on my blog for months and months, but never activated it. Wasn’t ready for it just yet.

    So today I upgraded to wp 2.8.1 and then began using asideshop and couldn’t get it to work properly.

    Glad to see I haven’t lost my mind
