I just updated this WordPress installation to 2.7.1—finally. I was all prepared to carefully follow the instructions until I remembered that my web host uses Fantastico, so I decided to try it that way. It’s almost frightening to report how dead-simple it was. Pretty much a single click and it was done.
BAM! (with apologies to Emeril)
If you see anything wonky, please let me know, but upon my own cursory browse, everything appears to be fine.
