The new version which was announced on wordpress.org 13 hours ago brings a lot of new features to the wordpress family and is named after the tenor saxophonist Stan Getz

Download Getz

You can download Getz from WordPress Download Center.

JohnChow has reported some bugs in Getz so its a better decision not to upgrade to the new version right away. I myself will wait for some days to see how the upgrade goes on other blogs and then I will myself go for an upgrade.

However its a great job by all WordPress Developers. Keep Rock’ing

    I just came across your great site. I love the tiga theme and had no idea that anyone else had developed a theme using the tigerator. I’m excited to try it out. I’m posting the comment here because I found your site looking to see if anyone had found a way to get tiga to work with the new 2.2 release. The widgets do not work with tiga and apparently not with your theme either so it likely has something to do with the tigerator. The theme works and the widgets can be set up but after saving the widget setup, it has no effect on the blog.

    I am also going to hold off on 2.2 because of several problems I’ve come across including a few of my favorite widgets no longer working. But I hope that tiga and your tigopedia will be working soon when it’s time to make the move. Thanks for the great theme. And I really like the look of your site!

    I absolutely adored the Tigopedia Reloaded 1.0 theme when I came across it and have happily changed my favourite blog over to it . Well done!

    However, all is not well in my blogging camp as of wordpress 2.2 release. Using fantastico I upgraded wordpress as I have always done. Only to find the site disappeared and an error message saying it was due to a translation plugin that I was using. After deleting the plugin via file manager (only way I could get at it) the wordpress admin was again operational complete with all my previous posts etc. These I can see in all their glory within your theme if I view the posts separately, that is, within their category files. The problem is with the blogs index page – its just got your background blue and NOTHING else. No layout, no posts, no stickys, just blue. Any ideas?

    Phill I am not sure here but are you using Wordpress 2.2 widgets? because if you are then you will likely face the problem as Tigopedia Reloaded 1.0 is not widget compatible for wordpress 2.2 but I am working on that and Tigopedia Reloaded 2 should be out anytime this month.

    I just saw your blog and its weird to see that the theme is acting in such a way. I assume it has something to do with your wordpress installation because I have seen hundreds of wordpress 2.2 blogs using Tigopedia Reloaded 1.0 in a fine and happy manner.

    In case you are using widgets in wordpress 2.2 do inform me. Rest I find myself lost at this situation.

    Does the blog homepage go blank with other themes too?

    I’m not using widgets and yes the result is exactly the same with a different theme. (Just checked after reading your message.) I’m at a complete loss what to do next, as you rightly guessed, the fault seems to lie with the wordpress installation. Basically I’ve got hundreds of pages of content archived over more than a year which can’t be accessed unless you know the exact page that a post is on 🙁

    Any ideas would be welcome. Do you know if its possible to go back to the previous wordpress version? If it is, the how would be appreciated.

    Sir very unfortunately I have no clue what might be causing the problem as its not related to the theme rather the wordpress system and more unfortunately you cannot downgrade to previous version.

    I suggest you post a thread about your problem at official Wordpress Support Forums. Someone will definitely be able to help you there.

  • Phill @ ISI Systems July 10, 2007, 2:34 am

    I’ve already posted to Wordpress forum and the advise was to deactivate any plugins that were installed. I did this and the index page came back. I then reactivated the plugins with no adverse effects.

    Hopefully this post will give guidance to anybody else that experiences similar problems.

    Thank you for trying to help,

    You are always welcome 🙂 and do check back soon because I will be releasing Tigopedia Reloaded 2.0 somewhere near the end of this month 😀
