- Sitewide Comment Tracking Revisited: I’ve had to deactivate a personal favorite plugin “Sitewide Comment Tracking Revisited” (my-comments.php) by dsader. A plugin that allowed you to track all your comments across the install from the comments field. Deleted it from the mu-plugins folder because it was causing ugly PHP errors when folks tried to comment on any blog. And while I’d like to look into an updated version, it’s nowhere to be found thanks to the vampires at wpmudev PREMIUM.
- Akismet: Another small bug I had was with Akismet. I keep akismet.php in the mu-plugins directory, as a result I hadn’t upgraded that plugin for a little bit—which in turn caused some issues with php error messages when people tried to comment. So a small tip to anyone doing this: upgrade Akismet to latest version ASAP if you keep it in mu-plugins and are using WP 3.0.
- Role Scoper: Got rid of it, no one really used it, and while I liked it for one project we are working on, overall it is ugly, runs very slow, and there seemed to be some compatibility issues with 3.0.
That’s it for now, but I am sure there will be many more 🙂 I’ll try and update this post with them as a running tally.
- Google XML Sitemaps: This one’s a no-go. From the WP repository page for this plugin:
This latest release is not compatible with the new multisite feature of WordPress 3.0 yet. The plugin will remain inactive as long as this feature is enabled.
- Advanced Category Excluder: This is a definite no-no, and it gets rid of all your pages. I’d deactivate this until there is an upgrade. We learned this thanks to the great LibGuides blog work of Paul Boger.
