WordPress 3.8.3 – Auto Update

WordPress 3.8.3 came out yesterday. It’s a small maintenance release, with the downloads and changelog in the usual places. For many people, this update will happen automatically and they’ll just receive and email to say it has been applied. I’m still not sure what to make of the auto-update feature of WordPress. Part of me likes [...]




WordPress 3.8.1

WordPress 3.8.1 has been released. You can see the changelog here. Now that WordPress has a true auto-update feature, if you can’t be bothered to manually press the update button today, wait a little while and it will update itself automatically. Happy upgrading (or doing nothing). Cheers Tim…




WPtouch Mobile Plugin

If you have a WordPress blog, you may want to have a [...]

Happy upgrading, possibly for the last time… Cheers Tim…

WordPress Security…
