Things to Consider Before Updating to WordPress 5.0

  1. Not all plugins will be Gutenberg compatible  01:31
    • You’ll need to test every single functionality of your site in a staging environment.
    • You should test everything anytime you make a WordPress update, but updating to WordPress 5.0 is going to be a major update that could impact your site.
    • Don’t update right away if you’re in the midst of major sales or promotions. Test first!
  2. Always backup, backup, backup 03:18
    • Even though you’ve done testing, still do a backup of your site!
    • “Pull the backup before you pull the trigger.” – David
