WordPress MU 2.7

After a lengthy delay, WordPress MU 2.7 is now available. WordPress MU is the software that runs on and many other sites.

This is a sync of the code from WordPress 2.7 released last December. It’s taken a while but I think it’s worth the wait as there are many bugs fixed. Besides the merge with WordPress 2.7 there are also a few new features, including Viper007bond’s admin bar which is the most user visible addition.
Check the timeline for further info.

Upgrading from WordPress MU 2.6.5 should be as easy as copying over your existing install but please backup everything. Blog databases must be upgraded but that will occur in the background as usual.

I would really like to thank everyone who helped me bring this release out and offered me encouragement along the way. I’d name names but I’m bound to miss someone! It’s great hearing what everyone is doing with WordPress MU. There’s quite a community out there!

Hey Donncha,

Great work, I downloaded and upgraded to the purportedly 2.7 version, but my WPMu is back at 2.6.5 –are you sure the files are right?


I think the “Add User from Community” option under Users is missing. Also, there is no space to see your numerous blogs in the header of the admin section.

Well done mate!! I can’t wait to get it working on our MU sites (with WP e-Commerce running too I might add)… I love the new interface and I think it will make a massive difference to the general morale of our users 🙂

Ciao 🙂

Hey donncha

this is one of the most wonderful release so far and i have been waiting for it since long

thanks for the great release
its truly superb 😉

Thanks for all the hard work on this code! I keep loving this code more each year and I have been using it for 5 or 6 years now.

Great Job!

1. the plugin upgrade only works once then the upgrade links disappear but the number of plugin update alerts stay the same. This has been a problem since wp 2.7 was released.

2. There is no way to select all users which is essential for deleting 30+ spam registrations.

Is it me or ZIP file was not updated as Donncha had been claiming on Jan 28, 2009 @10:05 pm? Am I getting package from some mirror?

I downloaded ZIP just a few minutes ago and it still has 2.6.5 in it. The TAR.GZ seems to have 2.7 (judging by new admin icons and version # in version.php).

Installing distribution from TAR.GZ now…
