There were a couple of features I was looking for (such as being able to schedule upcoming posts), but the real reason is that I want to be able to use MySQL 5.7 DMR3 against a tool that I interact with almost every day.
Or as this is more informally known, I wanted to eat my own dogfood:
I now have:
- WordPress 3.8.1
- MySQL 5.7 DMR3
- All InnoDB Storage Engine
- Disqus comment engine (comment if you think this is cheating)
- "Markdown on Save Improved" plugin.
I apologize for broken images and URLs changing slightly (which will break comments). I plan to fix them as I spot them.
Do you have any other suggestions I should try?
