Due to my habit of using WP for CMS, I often find in necessary to use PHP code within a post. I was having some issues with an old, no longer supported version of the plugin I used before this last upgrade, so yet again went searching.
I found a new version of the PHP in a post plugin, and it worked without any issues. The only thing you have to remember (and in most cases I’ve done this for you already when I installed your WordPress) that you must have turned off the “visual rich editor” that comes with WP now. This is found under your Users tab, at the very bottom of the page. Make sure the little box next to “Use the visual rich editor when writing” is NOT checked!
