WordPress is the blog software chosen by most Internet marketers. Once installed, it’s easy to use, has a lot of capability and all kinds of plugins to increase its usefulness. On the down side, it can be tricky to upgrade.
Apparently, upgrading to a newer version of WordPress is simply a matter of click, read instructions, click, click, and you’re done. But for some reason, both times I have tried to do it myself, it’s been more like click, click and I’m done ’cause my blog had a fatal error and disappeared.
After the first time, I learned to make sure I did a full backup before I started. And it’s a good idea to know a WordPress expert you can call on to fix the errors. Which is what I’m off to do now.
Next time, I will hire my expert to do the whole thing, rather than clean up after me. Sigh.
