WordPress MU merged with WordPress 2.5 (55 posts)

    http://trac.mu.wordpress.org/browser/trunk now holds the just merged WordPress 2.5 and WordPress MU code. It's not complete and it's probably unstable, and it's certainly not suitable for the faint at heart.

    Nevertheless, if you're willing to test it, you'll get:
    1. All new WordPress 2.5 admin backend including media uploader.
    2. Salted passwords.
    3. Bug and security fixes.
    4. Shiny new blog switcher created by Michael Adams

    I've tested creating a new blog from wpmu-blogs, writing posts and watched that kses stripped out class, id and style attributes. Installation works of course, hopping from blog to blog does too.

    If you're upgrading your test server you should open wp-config-sample.php and copy the SECRET_SALT and SECRET_KEY lines into your wp-config.php and set them to some random string.
    I will need to check that those constants are defined but they may end up being site options to make it easier on people upgrading.

    Let me repeat my previous warning. This is not to be used on a live server! Please only on test servers.

    I just installed it fresh on a spare domain and it went okay. I'll try an upgrade on another spare domain later. :)

    Uh, it's gonna be quite a change.

    Went ahead and upgraded geekdc.com to 1.5 since it's not very active at the moment anyway.

    1.5 seems sllloooooowwwwww to me.

    Just the backend? I am sure you have to load "everything" new again for the first time, but 2.5 backend was crazy fast for me, so I don't expect much change for 1.5 WPMU.

    Upgrade seems to be working. The wp-admin areas are going kind of slow now--slower than normal. But still working. Not sure what the cause of this is.

    So... where's this shiny new blog switcher, and what does it do?

    ... nevermind I see the it's a replacement for the old switcher.

    How long WordPress MU 1.5 is out ?

    It's not out yet. This is just an announcement about updates to include WordPress 2.5 being committed to the repository so that we can try it out if we want.

    Crap, I'm getting 404 errors on all my posts now. I think I need to try to upgrade the db again, but it's very very slow... hope there isn't some script timeout problem.

    Seems a bit faster for me then when i first upgraded; I found out my boss was uploading some large files so it may have been slowing our network. Faster, but still slower than before.

    It's purty though. Definitely going to upgrade my personal blog.

    Hmmm, no upgrade site doesn't work for me: it just sits there waiting for a response forever.

    Okay, I thought the slowness was just me. Brand new install too, no users.

    I have installed it in a test server and everything has been okay by now:

    - created one blog from the admin menu
    - created another blog as a regular user
    - deleted a created blog
    - made a few posts and included images.

    So far not a single error, except this one in my php log when creating a new blog:

    [04-Apr-2008 17:46:55] WordPress database error Table 'dev_wpmu.wp_2_posts' doesn't exist for query SELECT * FROM wp_2_posts made by install_blog

    I believe this is because it looks for that table before it creates it.

    Great job donncha!

    Having just installed WP2.5 for someone I was surprised at how fast and clean the backend seemed to be. I've always found WPMU to be a bit sluggish so lets hope that the 2.5 code merge makes WMPU a bit sleeker.

    I'm going to play around with it on a spare domain

    Silly question but what about Mu plugins?

    I got a pile of SQL errors but I'm not sure if they are expected errors caused by creating a new blog or...

    Also its not handling apostrophes in things well - so "Steve's Ramblings" comes out as "Steve\'s Ramblings"

    Another oddity - I've created the initial blog. I then create a second.

    If I then login as the owner of the second blog and click on my name where it says "Howdy" it reports "You do not have permission to edit this user."

    As SteveAtty reports, it seems users cannot be edited within user accounts. Also from a regula user acount I am able to see all other users registered at the site and their email addresses, including the admin. However no edit access.

    This would be a bad thing as an spammer could just signup for a blog and get a bunch of email addresses from the user list...

    Why don't you report over at http://trac.mu.wordpress.org/ ? That way Donncha knows more about the errors and the problems.

    As its so very "experimental" at this stage I wasn't sure if Donncha would want us piling stuff into trac at this time.

    He may not as he's gone ahead and closed tickets that were filed concerning the release.

    thanks...I will have to install it when I get a chance. the cleaner interface will be welcome!

    Any idea if integrating BBPress was an option??

    The version I got from track had no plugins or wpmu-plugins so I think its early days yet but its looking good

  28. andrea_r

    Those folders are missing because there's nothing in them, so the archive doesn't create them.

    I doubt an auto-integrate with BBpress will ever be a default option. (no, it was not there.)

    with the latest version of BBPress the integration is practically spoon fed to you. As long as this tracs wordpress 2.5, generates the right codes in your wp-config file, you should be all set to jet.
