I just wanted to make sure that I upgrade a WordPress site correctly. I have a few questions please...
1) Does it matter if you upgrade a custom purchased theme (from ThemeForest) first or WordPress first? Which is the correct order for WP, Theme and plug-ins to be upgraded?
2) the newest version of WordPress on my hosting server is 4.3.1, so I'm trying to determine if the latest version of Salient Theme is compatible with 4.3.1? On the ThemeForest site it only lists 4.3, not 4.3.1, so do you know if that matters? If it will work with 4.3 does that mean it will work with 4.3.1?
4) I am using a child theme, so am I correct that all I need to do to upgrade the parent theme Salient, is to replace the Salient folder under /themes/?
5) Do you happen to know... when I download the zip file from Theme Forest, how do I tell if it's the latest version of the theme?
I realize this is not a ThemeForest forum, but I need to get this site updated today, and it does take a long time for the theme author to reply, so I was hoping you might know the answer to some of these questions.
Thank you so much!
