It’s time to Upgrade and Modify Your Self-hosted WordPress CMS

  1. 1. <ul><li>It's time to upgrade and </li></ul><ul><li>modify your self-hosted WordPress CMS </li></ul>
  2. 2. <ul><li>With the release of WordPress 3.3 comes many new features that help streamline the WordPress experience, none more so than the permalink changes, which means you are not penalised for using the custom structure anymore. </li></ul><ul><li>Pre-WordPress 3.3 as the blog posts mounted up the website's slowed down, essentially meaning if you were over 50 posts, your website's performance was hit. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>So if you are using the %postname% structure it is time to make the upgrade! </li></ul><ul><li>Permalinks are when you've decided to use rather than the non-SEO friendly url structure. </li></ul><ul><li>Regardless of whether you are using custom permalinks, there are enough updates to in the latest WordPress release to warrant an upgrade ASAP. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>WordPress updates often get put on the back burner, but the reality is you should move quickly to update your CMS. </li></ul><ul><li>You need to make sure you have the latest WordPress CMS installed to help you maximise your website. </li></ul><ul><li>From the complex updates in the latest build, to the simple little touches such as drag and drop on file uploads, the whole administration experience has been given a much needed make-over. </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Does your web server stop you from being able to automatically upgrade? </li></ul><ul><li>Some WordPress users unfortunately can't quickly perform a WordPress update, due to their web host's server configuration. This isn't unusually as all servers are not the same, but this means that a manual upgrade is required. This is a time consuming process, that if not handled correctly will result in data loss. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>We've already discussed on our website before how to manually upgrade a WordPress website, which is always worth the time and effort. </li></ul><ul><li>However if it isn't a plugin preventing you from performing an automatic upgrade, you properly should migrate to a server that doesn't restrict automatic upgrades. </li></ul><ul><li>Hire WordPress experts who can help you! </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>Having a smooth running WordPress website isn't all about staying up-to-date with the latest WordPress version, but also making sure the database is well maintained, not unnecessarily bloated and the website has been designed and developed by an experienced team. </li></ul><ul><li>Our team at Neogain based in Hull, UK can help you!
