So you’ve just updated to WordPress 6.4 “Shirley”! But what’s this? Something broke? Or maybe you just have some questions you want to ask? This will help guide you through both troubleshooting, and common questions after the new update.
If your site broke, don’t panic!
Before you go any further, make sure you’ve updated your plugins and themes to the latest versions, clear your browser’s cache and cookies and re-log in to your WordPress dashboard.
Still having problems? Okay, read on!
Follow the link above to see a list of known issues with plugins and themes found in the latest release. Please check if your issue is outlined there first, and feel free to check back, it may change over time.
Also keep in mind that not liking the direction of WordPress’s design is not a bug. If you don’t like a feature, please don’t make a series of posts complaining about it. Look and see if someone already did, and post there, or consider joining the process earlier on (like in Beta or even test via SVN). What you’re seeing today is the result of thousands of hours of work and testing, and unless something is outright broken, it’s highly unlikely to be changed.
Again, before you post:
Make sure you’ve read this entire thread and New Features in 6.4 Article.
Go to your own install’s about page – `example.com/wp-admin/about.php` (or click the WordPress logo in the top corner) – to see what’s new.
And checked out the common troubleshooting steps.
