Is it absolutely necessary to upgrade to 2.3?

  • I’ve read all the horror stories and I know I would end up having issues because I’m not really savvy at these technical things.

    I am using the Cutline theme and I made some adjustments to it, so I’m wondering if the upgrade would revert those adjustments back to default, where I would have to spend another week trying to get them back to where I had them.

    I really hate spending time sorting out fatal errors and coding issues and all that stuff that usually comes with these things.

  • WP 2.3.2 changes nothing in your theme files. Just make sure you do not write over your existing THEME folder.

    I think it is necessary as 2.3.2 fixes some security issues. Many, many people have upgraded (including myself) with no problems. It is just a matter of following instructions.

    You don’t here about the good on a support forum only the bad.

    Kmessinger,

    I know many people have switched with no problem, but some people are just more apt to these matters.

    I consider myself a smart man, but these things always do my head in. And I always find myself spending more time than I should.

    And I really haven’t found the WP’s instructions to be that clear, although I do know they are much clearer than other companies.

    I need Upgrading for Dummies. Maybe some visuals.

    Hee, hee – yes, I have been there on many projects, not just upgrading.

    Like mrkingid said don’t overwrite the themes folder – that is probably the most important. If you have a good copy of of your site (or maybe two copies) it is hard to be more prepared.

    And I always find myself spending more time than I should.

    That is the way it is with computers. They make life easier.

    There is a WP for Dummies book. It might explain upgrading more thoroughy.
