I host my blog in Hostgator and domain name from Godaddy. I tried to upgrade from admin menu of wordpress (after login to wordpress account). There is a plugin “One Click Updater” used to update all my plugin with just one click. It is better than replacing the new file in the plugin directory and extract it. I found WordPress 2.5.1 is much more better. There is one click on top of the plugin page. Any available updates will be shown there. You just need to click once to upgrade all your plugin to a new version. I would say WordPress 2.5.1 auto plugin updater is much more better than the One Click Plugin.
There are more to say about WordPress 2.5.1 like the main page changes. It is more simple and the admin template looks so amazing. I was worried and scared to install wordpress 2.5.1 to my existing blog. There are so many people complaint on the stability of the newer version. Some even said, it crashes their blog. So, I have safe my blog for a few weeks now.
Today, I log in to my cPanel account and just check out Fantastico to install new blog. I found out that the WordPress upgrade of version 2.5.1 is available at Fantastico itself. Considering the risk of getting crack my sweet running blog, I just click the upgrade button and guess what it don’t even take 1 second of time to upgrade. Then I checked again my blog main page, everything looks as normal as before. Nothing changed.
Then, I log in to blog admin panel and amazed of what has been changed. Let’s experiment these new exiting platform.
