Support » Fixing WordPress » Um, WordPress 2.8 auto upgrade non existant?

  • Hi Guys,

    I have been waiting for the stable version of WordPress 2.8 to be released. Seeing as it has been, why am I not being asked or prompted to upgrade automatically from the backend of WordPress as in previous versions? If you need me to provide screenshots to prove there is no prompt to do so I can. Please enlighten me.

    Oh, I understand I can do it manually, but why should I have to if it was offered in previous versions?

    Best Regards,

  • Why was this closed and who closed it? Why am I being censored for asking a question

    EDIT-I am amazed this post went through. I want to know exactly why this thread was locked for over 14 hours? Which moderator locked it and please give your exact reason for doing so? Much thanks.

    Hey Drew,

    If you’re using 3.7.1 already, try looking at the top of the page in your admin dashboard… Mine had a yellow strip that said:

    “WordPress 2.8 is available!

      Please update now.

    When I clicked the link, it auto-upgraded me to 2.8 so smoothly It brought a tear to my eye.

    Hope that helps,

    Hi Luke,

    I should have mentioned that I did in fact get it working about 20 hours after this thread. I think it had something to do with the RSS or DB cache, as I cleared my browser cache to no avail.

    Anyway, why I am upset is because this thread was locked about 10 minutes after it was posted. I have no proof of it being locked, i just promise you it was (if you look at my twitter account you can see me mention this shortly after it happend). I have contributed over 15 video tutorials supporting WordPress for an extremely large blog and I really just don’t appreciate being censored with no explanation. I was just asking for help.

    Anyway, I know this has nothing to do with you, Luke. And I do very much appreciate your reply and advice. Stay well.

    Best Regards,


    P.S. I still would appreciate a response from whoever locked this thread. I think I am owed that at least.
