#4813 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Upgrade from 2.0.x to 2.3 breaks links

Reported by: mattyrob Owned by:
Milestone: 2.3 Priority: high
Severity: major Version: 2.3
Component: Administration Keywords: blogroll upgrade
Focuses: Cc:


Current users of WordPress in the 2.0.x branch will loose the content of their Blogroll following an upgrade to the 2.3 trunk (and therefore presumably the final release too).

Entering Manage Blogroll, clicking Edit and Save for each link populates the blank Category field but I can see no changes in the links table (the link_category filed is populated and does not change).

I chose not to upgrade from 2.0.x to the 2.1.x and 2.2.x branches because of changes to the category structure - I would guess that other users will be in the same situation, but maybe for different reasons.

Manually editing all of my links is not something I'd look forward to in upgrading to 2.3.

[If it would prove helpful I can provide a 2.0.x database but off this list please]

Try that out. If you still have problems, reopen and send your DB to ryan at boren dot nu

Fix works great for me - just repeated all my previous steps and the links now import perfectly.
