I’ve upgraded our blog to WordPress 2.8.2 without any glitches and issues. I used the core update feature of WordPress, after I noticed that due to one XSS vulnerability one could get redirected from the admin dashboard to URL mentioned in the comment forms. I would strongly suggest everyone to update their WordPress installation as it hardly takes a minute to upgrade.
Apart from that, Jeff Chandler posted the idea of having bbPress as WordPress plugin. I would definitely love to see a bbPress plugin for WordPress or a bbPress lite plugin with WordPress. The plugin should allow bloggers to create small forums along with the blog and should allow those forums posts to be displayed in the blog as blog posts based on the blogger’s discretion. There are few other bloggers who appreciated the idea; however, Chip Bennett and few others are not happy with the idea as this kind of plugin will make database heavier.
What are your thoughts about having bbPress Lite as a plugin for WordPress? Do you think it’ll make life easier for those who are not technically sound – I’m sure we can have many ideas floating around this topic.
Note – There is no plugin in the making and this was just an idea that came in Jeff’s mind and I just think that it’s a wonderful idea. May be Movable Type community would be interested in such kind of suggestion.
