Blog Updated to WordPress v5.1.1

I just updated my blog to WordPress v5.1.1 which contains a couple security updates and several bug fixes. As always, I backed up my files and database first. I have automatic updates disabled so I can do this beforehand. As I usually do, I updated the local copy on my PC before updating my blog here. The update seems to have gone fine so far. 🙂

Blog Updated to WordPress v5.1

I just updated my blog to WordPress v5.1 which contains several bug fixes and feature updates. As always, I backed up my files and database first. I have automatic updates disabled so I can do this beforehand. It included an update to the TwentyTwelve theme which I incorporated into my child theme. I only needed to modify the header.php and comments.php files this time. As I always do, I updated the local copy on my PC before updating my blog here. The update seems to have gone fine so far. 🙂

Blog Updated to WordPress v5.0.3

I just updated my blog to WordPress v5.0.3 which contains several bug fixes. As always, I backed up my files and database first. I have automatic updates disabled so I can do this beforehand. It included an update to the TwentyTwelve theme which I incorporated into my child theme. They were mainly just formatting and indention changes. As I always do, I updated the local copy on my PC before updating my blog here. The update seems to have gone fine. 🙂

Blog Updated to WordPress v5.0.2

I just updated my blog to WordPress v5.0.2 which contains many bug fixes. As always, I backed up my files and database first. I have automatic updates disabled so I can do this beforehand. It did include an update to the TwentyTwelve theme but nothing required me to modify my child theme. As I always do, I updated the local copy on my PC before updating my blog here. The update seems to have gone fine. 🙂

Blog Updated to WordPress v5.0.1

Well, I just updated my blog to WordPress 5.0.1 which seems to be some kind of hotfix. (Further reading shows it to be a Security Release.) As always, I backed up my files and database first. I have automatic updates disabled so I can do this beforehand. As I always do, I updated the local copy on my PC before updating my blog here.

At the same time, I noticed that the TinyMCE Advanced plugin I use also had an update to version 4.8.1. It now has a Hybrid Mode where it replaces the normal Paragraph block with a Classic Paragraph block. This allows the use of the classic interface while having access to all the newer Gutenberg block editor features. I’m playing with it now. So far, the update seems to have gone smoothly. 🙂
