Will it still update my website if I'm using an old version? (9 posts)

    It tells me to "please" download 3.01.

    I'm using 2.9.2

    It also hasn't showed my newer entries in 2 days?

    Is this why?

  2. Go ahead and upgrade straight to 3.0.1 like it wants (it'll work just fine), then let us know if you're still having trouble with your new posts not displaying.

    Thanks. My problem is that I have a jump drive/flash drive, but don't know how to save my Word Press files on it. Could you help please?

    It recommends saving everything before trying to upgrade.

    On a side note, Word Press has never worked for me yet. My website is new. It sure didn't take long for Word Press to completely stop working. Only a few months. This is odd! I'm hesitant to download a new version already. :)

  9. That's all the more reason to upgrade. You probably ran into a bug that was fixed by the more recent releases.
