WordPress 3.8 update is available.

Last Update: December 12, 2013

The new WP update to version 3.8 is out. And boy does it look different!

Very modern and extremely colourful. In fact there are 8 colour schemes to choose from. It is very inviting and I'm sure it will cheer some of us up working with the new look.

They have added a new theme Twenty Fourteen as well.

BTW - don't forget to do a backup of your site BEFORE you do updates - including to any new Wordpress versions.. A backup should be part of your site maintenance on a regular basis

Here's a link to Kyle's vid showing you how - http://goo.gl/YshpIM

Ken, after you did the update you just scroll down the page telling you what the update is about and you'll see the colour schemes to choose from. I tried 4 as I didn't like the black one either, and then chose the red sunset colour one. Maybe you clicked away from the page and can't get back to it?

Can you scroll down and see the colour schemes you can change it to?

Thanks Annie. I saw that there was a new update, but was wondering if it would throw current content out of kilter. From your comments expressing delight, I guess not.
Oh, yes, I certainly do backup - too much hard work has gone in for it to be lost.

No, so far what I've checked on my site is OK. The dashboard is looking so refreshing now. BTW I will PM you later re the government dumping near the Barrier Reef. Can you believe it?! Last gov. banned it this ones, says yeah go for it.
