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.
