Using WordPress 2.7 ‘s add plug in featureBy
I usually am not happy when I have to navigate my way around a new version of any software application. However. WordPress 2.7 has so many great new features I feel like a girl in a candy shop everyday since upgrading to WordPress 2.7.
Today I finally used the Add New Plugin feature. I have been wanting to test out a plug in to help me organize my Blog Post Ideas and decided to get it uploaded this evening.
The plug in was already downloaded onto my desktop, though I wanted to try out the integrated page that allowed you to search for a plug in.
My attempt to search by author did not locate the plug in at Word Press, so I stopped by the Official WordPress Plugins Repository to locate the plug in myself to locate the tags used to describe the plug in.
Once the plug in was located within the search result, a quick click to ‘install’ the WordPress Plugin resulted in an error.
I quickly discovered that if you are having errors when using any of the ad a plug in features. You likely need to disable and remove the Word Press Automatic Upgrade Plug in. So once deactivated I gave it another try ….
The window popped up, I clicked install and the plug in was uploaded unpacked and installed within seconds.
I am ecstatic about the fact that I do not have to open my FTP program to upload plugins ! This is one of the BEST new features of WordPress 2.7.
So if you have a list of plug ins you planned to upload. You may want to bump the task up your To do list. The process is faster, easier, and a snap with WordPress 2.7′s new plugin management features.
