wp-logo-stackedWordPress 3.6.1 is now available and fixes 3 security issues.  Please update your WordPress site as soon as possible.  Keeping your site’s software updated is an extremely important part of your security strategy.

How to Update Your Site

First, log in to the admin screen.

Before updating, you should always backup your site first.  Hopefully you already have a backup plugin you can use to create a quick backup.  I have used Duplicator and BackWPup and both work well.  See the WordPress site for detailed backup instructions.

  • There will be a message at the top of the admin screen “WordPress 3.6.1 is available!  Please update now.”
Please Update Now link
Click “Please update now” link
  • Next you’ll see the WordPress Updates screen.
  • Click the “Update Now” button.
