Updating WordPress

The old days of a scary update have pretty much gone thankfully. WordPress is an extremely stable framework, and extremely well supported with regular updates. Some updates are more important than others, but I strongly recommend that all Redback Graphics clients with WordPress sites update their WordPress to Version 4.0.1 as soon as possible.

Make sure to do a backup of your site prior to updating.

See article creating a website backup.

To update your WordPress is very simple. Login to your Dashboard, and at the top centre of the Dashboard home screen you will see “WordPress 4.x.x is available! Please update now.”

Click on “Please update now”.
The next screen will offer the opportunity to “Update Plugins” and “Update Themes”. DO NOT update these at this time, only choose “Update Now” button to update the WordPress.
Importantly, WAIT and watch as the WordPress enables Maintenance mode (site offline for a few seconds), then disables maintenance mode and your site is back online. Dashboard will then log you out and ask you to login again, to use the updated Dashboard.

If you have any problems please let me know asap.

Community Announcement

We did NOT vote for one world government. The fact is "Politicians" work for a corporation, NOT The Will of the People, as they are supposed to under our Constitution.

Where is the Governor General? MIA over citizenship chaos and abuse of our Constitution. The Governor General is SUPPOSED to be looking out for The People to ensure all laws created by the "government" are in the best interests of The People, and in accordance with the Constitution. The Parliament has abused the Constitution, yet the Governor General is MIA - why? Because he has no power under the corporation. Australia is run by a corporation, of which the Governor General is useless to The People who are supposed to be protected by our Constitution.
For more information, please research the Lima Declaration and the unlawful changing of the Constitution by the Whitlam government in 1973, or visit Facebook groups #UNexit,
