We have breaking news! WordPress 4.6.1 is here and you need to update now!  This update addresses security issues found in WP versions 4.6 and earlier. Read more about the threats and why it is “strongly encouraged you to updated your sites immediately”

To upgrade your WordPress install follow this guideline and you will be just fine.

  1. BACKUP YOUR SITE FIRST – With a backup you can always revert back should something go wrong. (Note if you have KartHost™ hosting your sites yours is backed up every 4 hours)
  2. Upgrade all your plugins FIRST
  3. Then upgrade your theme (caution if you have customized by changing your themes php code without changing the themes name or creating a Child Theme do not upgrade your theme, you will overwrite your customizations.)
  4. Now you can upgrade WordPress Core, its simple to do.

Note: If you have Managed WordPress Hosting with KartHost™, we will be doing all this for you, with the exception of upgrading your theme. If you have the KartHost™ WordPress Maintenance Service plan with your Managed WordPress Hosting we will upgrade your theme on a per request basis.

I studied Journalism at Texas A&M, c/o 2005, where I wrote for the college newspaper, as well as the for the College of Architecture's various publications. Upon graduation, I owned a direct sales company and, as the author of my own webpage, press releases and overall public relations, I continuously realized the importance of building my company's brand and web presence. While I'm still learning the technical side of email, website building and web hosting, I have partnered with KartHost in order to bring Roy and Gail's extensive knowledge directly to you, making the information as relatable as possible.
