Store URL: testserver localhost
WordPress version: 3.0
WP e-Commerce version: 188.8.131.52
Gold Cart version: 2.1
Theme: custom theme to customized Twenty Fourteen
I did this: Had to upgrade to the latest wpec version 184.108.40.206 and wp version 3.8.2. I installed the latest versions of wpec and wp (left out Goldcart for the time being) on a testserver and imported a database dump of the old install. Then activated wpec and the database got updated. No problems during the process.
But according to the step-by-step update-instructions from getshopped ( - step 1 - http://docs.getshopped.org/documentation/upgrading-from-3-7-to-3-8/) i had to first update from version
220.127.116.11 to versio 3.7.7. before proceeding to the 3.8 update. I obviously skipped this step.
I expected WP e-Commerce to do this: I don't know what to expect, see my question below.
Instead it did this: everything works fine.
But my main concern: is there a catch, since i skipped step 1. Can i expect problems because of this?
I know i seem scary, but it is for a customer and i want to be 100% shure.
