WordPress 3.0 CMS is just awesome with the loaded features and amazing stuff which were added in this new version. The backend ie the WordPress Dashboard located at Wp-Admin now loads faster and has better color theme. Except all of this stuff there is only 1 feature which i seriously hate because it made me loose severals hours finding out a fix for the bug. The Bug was actually with Images which were uploaded using the Upload Media option, which was not displaying Images within the blog posts and when i contacted my host and the server techie they too had a hard time finding a solution for this.
WordPress Founder ‘Matt Mullenweg‘ wrote a code which would make sure that the word WordPress would be replaced with WordPress because he wants the former word to be eliminated from the planet. The code automatically implements the changes in the Blog content, the post title, and comment text section and replace everything if there is a change found. If you have a Image on your blog with the name ‘WordPress-Logo.png’, then it would be automatically replaced if you upgraded your copy to ‘WordPress-Logo.png’ making the image disappear from the blog posts because the original URL is unchanged and its different from what is being served in the blog post, breaking the article.
One solution for this would be to either change all the URL’s in your media folder for the Images to make sure that you implemented the Capital P in all the file names. A better option WordPress should have implemented in that this feature should have been implemented only in the posts which are written or published after the 3.0 upgrade but by default its implemented on the whole blog content because of which everything gets broken without a fix.
Another solution would be installing a WordPress Plugin called as ‘Remove WordPress to WordPress filter’ which can be downloaded from here, which would replace the new changes and functions implemented in the blog. Even though this kind of fix is going to be a temporary one but there is no other option available except either implementing a manual change in the URL’s of the Images or else continuing with this WordPress plugin.
There should have been a better fix available for the WordPress users because automatically changing this way is going to give everyone a lot of time waste and all of this burden just for converting the “Wordpress” to “WordPress”.
PS : Make sure that from now on you don’t call this Blogging CMS WordPress, Word Press, wordPress, WORDPRESS, or WoRdPrEsS because its WordPress!
