Here’s the download link to RC 1:
RC 1 should be fully compatible with WordPress 3.1.x through 3.3.
It is strongly advised that you backup the current four Connections tables in the db before the upgrade because the db structure has been changed significantly.
After the upgrade is completed, validate the data for as many entries as you feel appropriate. The suggested method is, while on the Connections : Manage admin page, click “Show Details” for an entry and then click “Edit” to make sure that data is exactly as expected on both the “Show Details” and the “Edit” page. Why? The data on the “Edit” page is pulled from the new db tables whereas the data shown on the Manage page and the front end is pulled from a cache which stored with the entry specific details. These two sources are kept in sync when edits are made. The reason for this data structure is so that a large amount of entries can be displayed without bombarding the db with queries.
At this time, there are no known bugs, but if you find one, please submit it here:
Could you give me a link for the proper procedures for performing an update correctly? I’m fairly new to WordPress and I don’t want to mess things up in any serious way. (Since I’ve only put three entries into Connections so far, I’m not worried about messing things up in a minor way!)
Sure, here you go…
I have a database with 316 connections and it seems to work fine. I’m only testing on my localhost, not the live server but everything looks great.
Thanks for the feedback!
The only issue I see in the “templates” screen is a little funky on larger monitors. I’m using FF 3.6.2. You have your class “.subsubsub” floating left, so the table #availablethemes is floating to the right of it when there is enough room.
Maybe change .subsubsub to “float:none”, or make the width of that class 100%.
Which WP version are you testing against? The newly released 3.3? I noticed this past weekend I need to address the template admin page styling.
Thanks for the feedback!
Yep. Just installed the new RC plus WP 3.3
What is RC 1?
Does it differ from the current version?
‘RC’ means release candidate. This is actually an old post. The current released version is much newer than this RC1.
Ah OK – I am familiar with Release Candidates and Beta’s, but usually associate them with the ‘next’ version, so thought it might be an early version of a new ‘Connections’ !!
It was … the new version of Connections for this RC was Jan 1st. I’m already working on the next version. Expecting to release in June.
