  • Meagan Hanes: Update Smart: Using a Staging Site!

    WordCamp Montreal 2019Speaker: Meagan Hanes

    December 24, 2019 — Performing theme, plugin and core updates on your site can be intimidating and overwhelming, especially for older and more complex sites with many interconnected plugins – WooCommerce, I’m looking at you!

    The solution is simple: use a staging site – a private copy of your site where you can safely test updates and resolve problems before your users ever experience an issue.

    I’ll guide you across a number of ways to create a staging site depending on your specific needs, performing these updates, and then applying these updates to your main site. You’ll leave with a concrete plan for how to set up your own staging site, and will fear the update process far less!

  • András Guseo: 4 Tips For A Safe WordPress And Plugin Update

    WordCamp Bern 2017Speaker: András Guseo

    September 23, 2017 — An update for WordPress, themes and plugins should fix things. Right. And it does. Sometimes, however, some new bugs crawl in despite the best efforts and thorough testing. The multitude of installations and different plugin setups makes it impossible to test any plugin in every situation that exists in the world. And sometimes an update produces an error unfortunately, and in some cases even a totally broken site. This is when angry users attack support forums demanding an immediate fix, asking for their money back, giving 1-star ratings, and sending the developers to hell and back. Rightfully so? I don’t think so. Maybe partially. But you can do a lot to prevent an update breaking your live site and putting you out of business.

    So here are my tips for never ever having a broken live website for more than 10 minutes, when doing an update on core WordPress, your theme or your plugins.
