Thanks for the encouragement. Since we're newbies, we were apprehensive about clicking. We've now done it and everything is ok.!

Thanks again.

Hi Loes!

I just tried to update to that version and it just let me do it on a site where I don't have the SSL activated, do you think that could be the problem?

On my main site, where I just activated the SSL, it won't let me update neither the Wordpress nor the mailpoet plugin...

Weird... or not?

That's weird, indeed, all my sites are updated, ssl and siterubix

I just updated. You just go to your site and there's an UPDATE button to press. It's that simple
Reply
Loes Premium
Yes, very simple:)

Do we have to upgrade manually? or is it automatic?
Reply
Loes Premium
I think that depends on the theme, I always have to do 5 manually and 2 are doing it automatically

Bij de laastste update, waren er een aantal mensen wat laks, en zijn er nogal wat websites gehackt doordat ze de security update niet hadden geinstalleerd. De meeste updates zijn voor nieuwe veiligheid redenen. Niet elke website wordt automatisch ge-update

Wordpress emailed me to confirm they have automatically updated to Version 4.7.4, and there is nothing I need to do.
