For Backword Dave and Timbeaux and any other 'Bloggers interested, here's my list of gripes/tips from my two weeks of using WordPress:

  • You can get yourself in a terrible mess if you forget who you are logged in as. Don't.
  • WP takes forever to timeout from pinging back URLs when you press Publish, so just disable pings beforehand if your entry's links won't point to responsive 'Blogs.
  • The absolute distinction between what you can do with draft posts and what you can do with published posts is maddening—you even have to Publish posts you aren't happy with so you can delete them easily.
