I’ve spent the day updating the software that drives the blog. It is now up to date, and running the latest version of WordPress, version 2.0.2. Thankfully the upgrade went really smoothly, it taking more time to actually back up the existing configuration than do the update.
At the same time, I thought I’d try and change the theme which we were using, this proved to be a lot more tedious and frustrating, mainly because the various themes I tried, and the Flickr photo albums didn’t play nicely together. I’ve tried various themes, and also both FAlbum and Flickr Photo Album, and neither of the album plugins seem to get on with certain themes, in particular wp-andreas09 which looks really good with the rest of the blog, but places the FAlbum content level with the bottom of whichever sidebar is longest. It misbehaves in a similar way with Flickr Photo Album, except the first part of the photo page is correctly placed, with the rest of the content on the page in a similar location to FAlbum.
I guess what I’ll have to do at some point is to sit down with one of the non-working themes, and compare it with the integration in Tiga, to try and fathom out what is going wrong.
