When using plugins from divimode.com, we always suggest using the latest version of WordPress, the Divi-theme (or Divi Builder-plugin), and the divimode-plugins.

Also, we recommend that you take a backup of your website before installing any update.

Automatic Update

  1. Log into your wp-admin panel. Open the page Dashboard > Updates.
  2. Click the button Check Again. Wait until the page reloads.
  3. When there’s a new WordPress version, install it.

Manually check the version

If you want to double-check that you use the latest version, then head over to https://wordpress.org/download/releases/. Here’s a list of all released WordPress versions; the latest version is right at the top.

Too much work?

If you do not want to check for pending updates manually, we encourage you to switch to a managed WordPress host. We have a great experience with the WPMU DEV hosting and Kinsta. Note: divimode.com is hosted with Kinsta.

Both services will automatically update your website and create daily backups for you.
