MT Upgrade Almost Flawless

Well, I upgraded Movable Type 2.62 and the upgrade was near flawless. I say near flawless because I gave my sidebar and my sidebar info files the same template name over at BiblioBlog, thus overwriting all of the sidebar information I had so carefully crafted.

If by any chance you go over there and see all the correct info (currently you'll see multiple calendars. Obviously not the right info), do me a favor and send the html pretty please. :-)

Otherwise, painless upgrade and all should be functioning properly. Please send me an e-mail if you notice anything wonky.

Update: It seems to be taking a long time processing comments. Anyone else have the Scripty Goddess Subscribe to Comments on their site having the same issue?

Thanks for the MT info. I'm not too techie that way and haven't even attempted the upgrade. That will have to wait for the proverbial rainy day with nothing much else to do. Enjoyed my read as always!

I upgraded today. I also had to re-install all of my smilie hacks, so I tested them out, in both my comments and posts.

I'm not using that *subscribe to comments* script or anything, but I still noticed that it took longer than usual to submit a comment.

Anyway, the upgrade was almost painless!
