Alex King’s competition came out with the WP Themes winners last month, and I just discovered that my theme, Rin, won as Plain Ol’ Poobah. The Grand Poobah winner, Connections looks so tempting to use, that I really could consider it as an alternate theme. It’s really purty.
The WP Plugins being released recently are very promising, but I was tormented by random SQL errors when posting, moderating comments, etc. after I installed some. This only happened after installing the plugins, so it took me a couple of days to figure out what was causing the issue, and I was in denial that it had to be the plugin I really wanted to keep: a Miniblog feature, which was nicely situated on my sidebar for the last 2 days or so.
