Upgraded to WordPress 2.3

Seems to have worked, so far. The “Similar Posts” plugin borked, so I had to disable that. Everything else Just Seems To Work™.

So, what’s the difference between Categories and Tags now? I used to use Categories as tags. Are they both interfaces to the same table in the database? One way to find out…

Update: oh. they’re separate things. well, that’s silly. so, now all of my old /tag/tagname links that used to point to category pages now point to empty “tag” pages because none of my posts have actual tags. That’ll be fun to clean up…

Update 2: wasn’t so bad. just went into the permalink settings and had “tags” point to /tags and left my “categories” pointing at /tag. Not exactly what they had in mind, but whatever.

  1. I was wondering what was going on on that as well – I used categories as tags as well. I can’t see the tags anywhere on my theme, but thaet doesn’t mean that it’s not working.

    I was trying so hard not to post “it feels snappier”, but your blog certainly seems faster.

  2. I really like separating tags from categories. To me, they have totally different uses. Prior to 2.3, I’ve used GT Tag Cloud plug-in to do tags.

    Re: the data collection issue, there is reportedly a plug-in that disables it. (I haven’t tried it yet.) See here for more info.
