I just wanted to let everyone know that the latest and greatest WordPress is now out. WordPress 1.0.1 takes all the amazing features of 1.0 (including real search-engine friendly permalinks, multiple categories, trackback on edit, comment moderation, and more) and fixes all the bugs and makes it faster.

If you're feeling adventurous the nightly builds of version 1.1 has sub-categories and a few other improvements underway.

I am just curious. Do I need to drop/remove all the b2 tables in database before upgrading from b2?

forgive the obvious question:

What is the relationship/difference between b2 and wordpress ? I'm confused...

I like both b2 and WordPress. I used b2 before, and now some of my friends use b2. b2 is more simple, more customisable, so if you want minimalistic blog, probably u can choose b2. Also there are many hacks for it.

Though, you CAN upgrade from b2 to wordpress without losing any data. I described here the correct way (it is also written very good in the wordpress readme.html included):

I have two computers: one is a tower, and one is a laptop. I am signed in to my b2 blog on my tower, but sometimes my tower is attacked with a virus or freezes, and I have to use my laptop in order to go online. When I try to sign in on my laptop, it doesn't work. It doesn't give me a reason for why it won't work, either. Is it because of some settings on my laptop? Or is it because I'm allready signed in on my other computer, and I am not allowed to sign in twice during the same time?

In my templates page, something apears at the bottom of the edit frame. it says: (you cannot update that file/ template: must make it writable, e.g. CHMOD 766). What does that mean?

Why don't you ask that on the support forums instead?

What do I need wordpress or b2?
11.03.04 @ 12:27:48 894


gave up on b2 a loooong time ago. The Blogger-to-WordPress tool broke everything. Asked for help and got no reply. I am sure this willbe deleted, but try pMachine if you want a really good php-based blog app.
12.03.04 @ 15:46:38 032


Sorry, but why did you use blogger-to-wordpress and not b2-to-wordpress if your blog was b2?
No wonder it broke...
@andrea: depends. b2 isn't developped any longer, but still works. wp is the successor and has new features (though you won't need all of them). See wordpress.org for more info.

What is b2 ?
A classy news/weblog tool (aka logware).

How does it work ?
You type something and hit "blog this" and in the next second it's on your page(s). You can write extended entries, or even entries that span multiple pages. You can also use BloggerAPI clients to post to your b2 weblog.
What's original in b2 ? Pages are generated dynamically from the MySQL database, so no clumsy 'rebuilding' is involved. It also means faster search/display capabilities, and the ability to serve your news in different 'templates' without any hassle.

Requirements ?
A server that can run PHP4, and a MySQL database (you can install b2 in an already existing database, and you can put several b2's in one database).

Where can I download it ?
b2 0.6 is the latest public release.
You can also visit the CVS server for the latest code, at your own risks.
See the ReadMe file for requirements and installation instructions.

Contact info ?
E-mail: m@tidakada.com
Forums: over there. :)
