It’s Time to Upgrade to WordPress 2.3.2
December 30, 2007
WordPress just recently released a new version, WordPress 2.3.2, which fixes a security bug that can allow people to see your drafts. This can be pretty bad for some who save their best articles in drafts, or keep important information stored in draft files. Either way, if you don’t want anyone to have access to your drafts or to be able to read what they contain, then it’s best that you upgrade to 2.3.2. The folks at WordPress call this an “urgent security release”, so maybe you shouldn’t skip this one!
However, upgrading to 2.3.3 also allows you to customize DB error pages. According to WordPress:
“As a little bonus, 2.3.2 allows you to define a custom DB error page. Place your custom template at wp-content/db-error.php. If WP has a problem connecting to your database, this page will displayed rather than the default error message.”
If you’re currently using WordPress 2.3.1, then you can see the differences between it and the newest release, 2.3.2. Or you can go ahead and download the latest WordPress upgrade, staying on top of the game and keeping your blog safe!
