Notable changes to this version of WordPress include a Wiki-like tracking of edits, word count, theme preview and image captioning. For a full list of changes and more detail about the update, visit the WordPress blog here.

Does this 1-click WordPress installation function still work? Your support guys say “no”.

Who’s right?

Hello Warren,

I just tested out our Wordpress application installer and it works like a charm. My site was up and running within minutes and I was able to make posts immediately.

Could you clarify in what context they said “no”?

Nice, last time I tried installing Wordpress I had some issues. I’m going to give this a try again and see how it all goes. Looks pretty good.

Wordpress is one of my favorite things! It’s a tremendous feature to offer with every account.

I’d had the same question as Girish, and I found the link to be just as helpful! I will send this to some friends of mine as well.
