You know what, I am going to write a post about WordPress 2.0 again. The last time I did that I got 17 comments, which is close to a record, so I finally know how to please my readers.
No seriously, I have to write a post about WordPress 2.0 because I am incredibly stupid. There you go. I am not too afraid to admit it.
The thing is – I installed the new version of Ultimate Tag Warrior on my WordPress 2.0 Bill blog, And that doesn’t need to be a problem. It only is a problem if you are as stupid as I am. I was entering loads of tags, seperating them by spaces (where did I get that idea from ?) in stead of comma’s. Now this is again a “don’t try this at home kids” one (I soon am going to create a separate category for that) . Seperating tags with spaces messes things up. And the worst thing is that I was ignorant enough to post it as a bug on the UTW forum too. And that I blamed WordPress for it of course.
Seperating tags with spaces messes up the new post preview. Seperating tags with spaces makes your tags input field disappear. Separating tags with spaces causes minimized Ajax / AZ / Crystal Palace boxes to open up again next time you edit a post. Seperating tags with spaces nearly caused all the problems I was ranting about wednesday.
So I learned quite a bit today, not the least how high the level of my stupidity actually is. And by actually seperating my tags with comma’s, I am quite the happy WordPress 2.0 user again.
So my apologies to all the people I offended with my ignorance. I can live with the image uploader, and the overcrowded dashboard, well I solved that with a hack.
WordPress 2.0 is great – and the Girl soon wants to be top of the Bill too.

It’s not all your stupidity, since version 2.8: It?s getting closer to really-really having spaces in tags: tags are now a comma separated list, and any tags with spaces will automagically have spaces turned into underscores. So before version 2.8 it was seperated with spaces.
Well the thing were it went wrong for me was that the tags now have to be entered in a text area field with multiple lines. And I am so used to the fact that you have to seperate things in such a field with “Return” that I automatically assumed that this should be the case for tags too. But it wasn’t.
@Yak : I know :-) But believe me I have nothing better to write about at the moment :-)
I upgraded to the latest version of UTW, but now all my tags are shown double… But not in the editor. Maybe blogger wasn’t that bad ;)
Solved! (using tag management)
I had the same problem, and don’t remember how I solved it, but I did somehow :-)
