Hi, this is Brad with Firstsiteguide.com, and in this video, I’ll be explaining the “Update” section of WordPress. So we’re here at the dashboard and you’re going to go over to the left and click on “Updates.”
WordPress, like any other popular content management system, releases both minor and major updates to their platform to introduce new features, fix bugs, and increase security. In the past, you would be given the choice to update to the latest version of WordPress through your dashboard using a one-click install process, or by downloading the latest version and installing it yourself.
For anyone who has WordPress 3.7 and above, the updates to the core of the WordPress platform will now be automatically installed. In this section here you’ll still receive notifications for updating your plugins and your themes.
I hope you found this quick demo useful. For more videos and how-to guides, please visit us at Firstsiteguide.com. Take care.
