Upgrade download

Go to your blog administrator and you should see a button to let you run the automatic upgrade.

If for some reason you can't run the automatic updater and you are in version 1.3.1, you can download the update, unzip it and follow the instructions in the readme.txt file.


If you installed version 1.4.1, you will need to make sure your role has the "Manage system" permission. If you don't, you will not be able to download the update. Go to Users > Roles, and click on your role. The select the "Manage System" checkbox and click Submit. The logout and log back in.

    I'm running 1.2.4 but I don't see a button the admin to upgrade. Am I missing it somewhere?

    Hi Tim,
    It could be that your server is blocking web service calls. Do you know of any limitation like that in your server?

    I want to swap my wordpress site for the Mango blog software. Is there some sort of a conversion script available so that I can keep my posts, tags and categories?

  4. Laura
    You can import it while you are installing Mango.

    When are you going to add support for metadata? Sharing posts on services like Facebook is terrible since it doesn’t show any relevant post information in the description. Bad for SEO as well!

    @tom, you can use custom fields for metadata. It's pretty easy. Check out and look in the forums for examples.
