I finally upgraded to 2.8 from 2.2. I have new sitemap generators in, my various social networks plugged in, my syndication (almost) fixed again now that feedburner is no longer blocked in China. Most of my widgets, jeromes keywords tags and the like came over OK. Just need to work on the fonts and colours and add in a few more front page and back end stuff. And I will be with the times.
Also put in the new header that I made along with the old one 3 years ago – but never used. Good spring clean!
