    I am running 3.6 and I am wondering if updating to 3.6.1 will mess up my current theme settings. Advice please:) Sorry if this is a stupid question.

  • Your theme settings are stored in your database, and the upgrade will not change them. The only thing the upgrade might do in the theme department would be to add or update one or more WordPress themes available at your Dashboard. Beyond that, nothing about your theme should change unless you have done modifications to a WordPress theme without using a Child Theme or your theme (either old or from somewhere else) might have some kind of compatibility issue. And to help make the upgrade smooth, be sure to deactivate all plugins beforehand.

    Your theme could potentially break and if it’s a commercial theme then you’ll need to discuss this with your theme’s vendors. Otherwise, which theme are you using?

    Thanks all, I updated and it worked just fine. We’re still using the free wordpress themes, so no worries there. I really appreciate the help, THANK YOU!
