Upgrading to WooCommerce 3.0.x

WooCommerce came out with a major new release earlier this month – and that almost always means problems and conflicts are in your future!

I’ve been upgrading WP Minder clients all week with not too many issues, mostly template updates and adding support for the new gallery functionality. If you’re tackling this process on your own, though, you might find this guide to updating to WooCommerce 3.0 useful.

Please make sure you have a fresh backup ready to go before you do this – it is likely to cause problems with your site. If you have access to a staging area, make a copy of your site and test the update there first. If your host doesn’t offer staging, you can try this plugin (read the fine print first). Or, get a copy of WP Rollback installed before you upgrade.
