WordPress - Plug it in
Authored by: gatorparrots on Feb 15, '05 03:58:44PM
While the base install of WordPress is great, you may appreciate some of Alex King's plug-ins for it, making the overall user experience that much better and more feature-packed (while still maintaining the overall simplicity). I suggest installing his WP 1.2 Plugged In version, rather than the default install of WordPress. Grab it here.

WordPress - Plug it in
Authored by: robg on Feb 15, '05 04:50:34PM

I'm assuming he'll release a 1.5 version at some point in the (near?) future -- that's the one I'd suggest people wait for. The current one, at least as far as I can tell, is based on the older 1.2 WP version.

1.5 has some really nice new features; I'd hate to give those up to get the plug-ins pre-installed...

WordPress - v1.5 released
Authored by: MtnBiker on Feb 15, '05 10:01:36PM

http://wordpress.org/download/

which is linked from the main page shows v1.5, so I guess your good write up prompted them to release it.

WordPress - v1.5 released

You've jumped to a silly conclusion. WordPress was the talk of the blogging town long before this writeup and 1.5 was released late Valentine's Day night.

I'm sure they appreciate the positive press, but this hardly prompted them to release 1.5.

You are correct -- in fact, I didn't write this up until *after* 1.5 was released, because I didn't want to review a not-yet-done piece of software.
