  • This might be a dumb question; but if I have a fully custom theme, is it safe to perform a wordpress upgrade, or do I risk breaking my custom theme?

  • There are only two situations that I can think of in which you would want to consider not upgrading wordpress:

    If your custom theme is a modified version of one of the default themes (twentyeleven/twentyten).

    or if your theme is using out of date hooks/actions (which if you are upgrading from anything above 3.2 I’d be willing to be you’ll be fine) you can go here to double check.

    If you made the theme yourself or customized someone else’s theme (other than a default) and you are not upgrading from a very old version of WP I’d be willing to bet that you will be fine. I’m sure other’s will be able to voice their opinions if I missed anything here.

    But remember always backup! just in case.
