This blog like all of my websites is powered by WordPress. I’ve been using the WordPress platform for about 7 years now. I’ve never rushed out to install the latest updates, since I have found that as much as I love the platform, a WordPress update can be buggy at times. Especially within the first few days of a new update release.
Case in point. The latest update, WordPress3.4 “Green” was released this week, and since I’m spending a lot of time in WordPress on another site I am working on I decided not to wait and upgrade to WordPress 3.4. Only I didn’t use the other site as my test bed. I used nwemediaMike instead.
After I updated the WordPress installation I found out that it broke the theme I was using. So I’m back to the Thrilling Theme. I like this theme and it is clean and intuitive. So Thrilling Theme it is.
So what is the Golden Rule of WordPress Updates?
Wait for the stable version, usually 3-5 business days after the initial release.
