FlowingData Upgrades to WordPress 2.7.1, Plus Threaded Comments

I finally upgraded to the most recent WordPress, and everything seems to have succeeded without any hitches. I always get a little nervous when I upgrade. I backup everything nightly, but it’s a hassle when something goes cukoo. Please do let me know if you see anything weird.

Threaded Comments

One significant change you should notice is threaded comments. You can now directly reply to others’ comments at the end of posts. I’m really happy with the results.
