WooCommerce 3.5 and WordPress 5.0

WooCommerce? Read This Before WordPress 5.0 Release

If you’ve been keeping up with the new WordPress 5.0 version, scheduled for release on November 19th 2018, you’ll know there are a ton of changes.

One massive change is how it integrates with WooCommerce. The integration is a full rewrite of code and if you upgrade WordPress and fail to update WooCommerce ahead of time, you’ll likely end up with a broken site!

WooCommerce has been pushing out notices to people advising them to upgrade WooCommerce prior to the new WordPress release. In their latest notice, they underlined “your site needs to be running WooCommerce 3.5.1+ to avoid breaking changes” so head their warning.

Please make a backup of your website prior to November 19th to avoid any possible issues with your hosting company and webmasters.

Backups are a critical lifeline and believe me, you’ll thank me later should something go horribly wrong!
