Blog Updated to WordPress v4.9

I just updated my blog to WordPress v4.9 which contains a number of updated features. As always, I backed up my files and database first. I have automatic updates disabled so I can do this beforehand. While the Twenty Twelve theme was updated to version 2.4, I didn’t have to change anything in my child theme. So far it seems this update has gone smoothly. :)

Blog Updated to WordPress v4.8.2

I just updated my blog to WordPress v4.8.2 which was primarily a security patch with some additional changes. As always, I backed up my files and database first. I have automatic updates disabled so I can do this beforehand. Nothing changed with the Twenty Twelve theme so I didn’t have to worry about anything there. So far it seems this update has gone smoothly. :)

Blog Updated to WordPress v4.8.1

I just updated my blog to WordPress v4.8.1 which contained a number of maintenance fixes and enhancements. As always, I backed up my files and database first. I have automatic updates disabled so I can do this beforehand. Nothing changed with the Twenty Twelve theme so I didn’t have to worry about anything there. So far it seems this update has gone smoothly. :)

Blog Updated to WordPress v4.8

I just updated my blog to WordPress 4.8, which contains a number of feature updates mostly to do with widgets. As always, I backed up my files and database first. I have automatic updates disabled so I can do this beforehand. The TwentyTwelve theme was updated but the only file that was changed was the style.css that contained rules related to the new widgets. I did not have to change my child theme since it loads the parent’s style.css automatically.

The only quirk I noticed was in the post editor I am using right now. The line-height did not match that of the theme and it bugged me. After inspecting the CSS, I discovered I needed to add the following to the my child theme’s editor-style.css to override some other styles:

.mce-content-body p, p {
   line-height: 1.714285714 !important;
}

After this, I then had to clear my browser cache to actually see the changes. Other than this, everything seems to be working fine. :)
