It just worked.
I clicked update then I clicked to update a plugin that’s part of the theme and it worked. The site was the same, the backend admin section is completely revamped and there are a bunch of new improvements and I didn’t have to restore a backup, fix things, find code, redo this and that and best of all: not know what happened and try to figure that out. For hours. Without joy.
Tech advice for clicking update: cross your fingers and back up your work (not in that order).
In our new role as “we don’t care how it works as long as it works,” we’re looking for products that Just Work. So far, so good.
Oh, and all of those updated features? Wow, big improvements on what was already a stellar product.
