  • Hello,

    It’s always good to run the WordPress updates for security purposes among other things but it is not essential, though highly recommended.

    One thing to consider though before updating is checking to see if your plugins work fine with the new version of WordPress. If they don’t, things can ‘break’ although most of the time, everything runs fine and goes smoothly so don’t let it put you off. = )

    Before you update, do a back up.

    I am new to WordPress and have just updated for the very first time. Since doing so the Revolution Slider on my homepage seems to have disappeared and also, today when trying to add a new product, I am unable to add any product tags. Please help!

    Thank you
    Sarah

    Thanks Seanheather, if I do a backup and things go wrong when I update can I reinstall the backup and will the old wordpress reappear or is it not that easy? Thanks
