Before You Install the WordPress 3.3 Sonny Update…

Before you install the WordPress 3.3 Sonny Update

This is just a quick post…

WordPress released v3.3… the “Sonny” update.

You can read more about it here…


I’ve installed it on some of my test sites and will have a video out shortly.  It looks great!

One note of caution…

This goes for ANY major update (which WordPress 3.3 is).

DON’T IMMEDIATELY INSTALL this update if you are using any 3rd party (premium)
themes or are using premium plugins.

WordPress does their best to test all aspects before they release the final version, but it’s still not going to work perfectly with all things WordPress.

As you read this, someone is panicking because their theme stopped working, or their plug-in isn’t functioning… they are putting in helpdesk/support requests and the developers are working overtime to fix any issues.

If you are running anything other than the basic WordPress site… give it a week or so before you update.  Then check with your theme developer and plug-in developer to verify that all is well.  If they’ve fixed anything, they’ll have an update available.  Install their updates, then install the WordPress update and you *should* be good to go!

That being said… BACKUP your WordPress site before you update… just in case!
