Updating WordPress


Back up WordPress

Before you get started, it’s a good idea to back up your website. This means if there are any issues you can easily restore your website.


Automatic Background Updates

For WordPress 3.7+, you don’t have to lift a finger to apply minor and security updates. Most sites are now able to automatically apply these updates in the background. If your site is capable of one-click updates without entering FTP credentials, then your site should be able to update from 3.7 to 3.7.1, 3.7.2, etc. (You’ll still need to click “Update Now” for major feature releases.)


We make sure our themes are compatible with the latest version of WordPress.
