WordPress 6.4 is here, and it’s named Dolphy. We’ve covered the features of WordPress 6.4 in our recent blog. In this guide, learn how to update to the latest version easily.
It’s good practice to wait for a few updates before updating to the latest version of WordPress, especially if it’s the latest release with fresh new features. That’s why I waited for 6.4.1 to come out before upgrading. The 6.4 was reportedly breaking sites with particular page builders. Later, WordPress released 6.4.1 fixing the errors that were causing havoc before.
However, if you’re eager to download and want to experience the latest version, here’s how you can do it. Follow these simple steps to upgrade your website to WordPress 6.4.
