Since it has been released on On June 10, 2009, so far no problem and I like its new features where the major for my liking are; it support IIS 7.0 URL Rewrite Module and I found it's much faster loading of admin pages via script compression and concatenation. These two (2) which I like most to have for my blogging activity.

hi michaeldadona, Thanks for you comment. Lucky for you. You don't face any problem with this wp2.8 version. Mine is worst. First, all my background images didn't show up using firefox. Yesterday, my pages start messing up. All the alignment went out of the box. They already come out with beta version 2.8.1. I don't know weather this one can solve all the problem or not. Hopefully they can come out with very stable one this time. Happy mylotting.

yeas akuler, last time me too. Having problems like what you said. But, after I followed the instruction given in FAQ - Support - http://wordpress.org/support/topic/279132?replies=18 ; it resolved most of the problems. Before you start all of the rectification works, you must ensure two (2) things done - 1. backup your file. - 2. backup your Database. Without doing that both it will gives you big troubles. In fact, there is an option, placing it back on before you activate WP2.8. Some more clues to it; http://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_Backups http://codex.wordpress.org/Backing_Up_Your_Database http://codex.wordpress.org/Restoring_Your_Database_From_Backup

Wow, I didn't know 2.8 was even out yet. I may try it but it took me so long to get my blog the way I wanted it with the template that I am using, I don't know if I want to chance messing it up. I wonder if I can back it up and restore 2.7 if it doesn't work. I use Hostgator so upgrading to 2.8 is easy. I just don't know how I would restore it.

Hi Vancollins, Actually they already come out with 2.8.1 version yesterday or 2 days ago. There are a few problem with version 2.8 and in easy words it is not stable. I, myself, already install 2.8 version and since then I got headache. All my theme background images can't be seen when using Firefox but ok if I use IE. I don't really know where is wrong. If you are just like me, with no knowledge of all this coding, I suggest you to stick with what you have now. Wait until this new version totally stable. Unless you are willingly spend more of your time in front of your computer. You better back up all your file before you try this new version. If you find something wrong then you can restore back your old version. Actually there is a lot of advantage for using this new version. I like the new look of the dashboard. They improve a lot there. I can easily install plug-in now without have to unzip the file. Enjoy your blogging and happy mylotting.

Installing plug-ins without unzipping files would be a huge plus. I have a few blogs so maybe I will try it on one that I don't use often. Thanks again.

That a good idea. Maybe you can try that. If you don't want to use your establish blog maybe you can open up one new blog then try there. Experiencing the new features in version 2.8 before you try on your establish one. Happy mylotting and have a great day.
