Menardconnect.com upgrade to WordPress 2.7


Its been less than a month since this site was initially setup and now I need to upgrade to WordPress 2.7???
Honestly that was my initial reaction. But upon reading wordpress.org posts on the 2.7 upgrade instructions, visiting top blog posts on the topic and knowing the importance of patching systems in a timely manner, I decided to give it a try.
The learning process was fun!!! Creating a backup for your WordPress files and DB, testing the backup, using tools provided in cpanel, following instructions, finalizing setup, checking that your site is really running 2.7 already, reactivating plugins, and finally doing the first post using 2.7… officially.

The admin console look and feel is refreshing 🙂 I will try the new features in the coming days. Thanks WordPress!
