WordPress 2.3.1 editing problems

I upgraded to WordPress 2.3.1 because it was a “security” upgrade, meaning that after the One True Upgrade was released, people found holes in it.

The Disappearing Right Column on FRL

It’s happened again; the right column on this blog no longer appears in IE, though I see it just fine in FireFox and can see it in the source code. Update: with this post, now it’s back. Wonder what the heck’n is goin’ on? Now, I know that a web page should validate, for a’ […]
