Blog Updated to WordPress 5.8.3

I just updated my blog to WordPress v5.8.3 which contains mainly some security 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 the blog here.

Since none of the themes were updated I didn’t have to worry about any changes with them. So far, the update seems to have gone fine. 🙂

Blog Updated to WordPress 5.8.2

I just updated my blog to WordPress v5.8.2 which contains some security and bug fixes. Since I was on version 5.7.1 before, it also added several new features as well. 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 the blog here.

The Twenty Twelve theme I use was also updated to version 3.5. Doing a file comparison, no changes were needed in my child theme. I also needed to update around 8 plugins. So far, the update seems to have gone fine. 🙂

Blog Updated to WordPress v5.5

I just updated my blog to WordPress v5.5 which contains a number of feature updates and the usual security and 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 the blog here.

The Twenty Twelve theme I use was also updated to version 3.2. I only needed to make one change in my child theme’s header.php file to match the updates. So far, the update seems to have gone fine. 🙂
