WordPress 3.1.2 – Update Information

Remember to back up your WordPress installation before you update. This is what the WordPress update will be like. If this is your first update, prepare to be amazed. It’s super easy!

Once you’ve completed the update, take a look at your site and make sure that everything still works. Sometimes plugins may have problems with the new WordPress software. Don’t worry though, most of the time things will be just fine. If you do discover a problem turn off the plugin and email the developer of the plugin about the issue. They should be able to update their plugin to work with the new software.
