Forthcoming Site CMS Upgrade

Hope everyone has enjoyed watching the Beijing 2008 Olympics! :) I watched the entire closing ceremony (with some sadness) and was quite impressed by some of the performances, even though I was completely bowled-over by the opening ceremony. Now that the Olympics are coming to London, there’s so much to look forward to – I can hardly wait! :)

Back to the original topic of this post: as you maybe aware, BOO uses the excellent WordPress as our Content Management System (CMS) It’s fast, open source, and incredibly easy to use.

In the past few months, WordPress have released 2 major versions of the system, each sporting new features (one or two not quite as welcome) and lots of optimised code. In the interests of stability (and bug problems) we haven’t upgraded at all, but as we are falling quite far behind in terms of functionality as a result, now seems like a good time to upgrade the entire site, especially after our successful upgrade of the BOO Forums just last week.

Upgrading WordPress on Back-on Online this weekend

This is a bit of a short notice, but seeing as I have a little bit more time now, it seems like a good idea to upgrade the back-end system of Back-on Online, which runs behind the scenes and is also known as WordPress.

It will be a major leap to upgrade from the current version 2.1 to 2.3, as there have been a lot of changes to the database and tag system. If the site goes down during the upgrade process, I expect it to be back up and running again within 2 hours, so hope this does not inconvenience visitors too much!

After the upgrade is completed, some areas of the site may not be functioning as some files will need to be edited, so hope no one minds too much.

Thank you all for your continual support! :D
